Truck mounted water carts are most commonly seen at mining sites, as their custom designed chassis and off-road tyres give them great stability over rugged terrain. Even though the spraying capabilities vary from truck to truck, water trucks are able to haul as much as 36,000L in one go! The advantage of hiring a truck mounted water cart is that they are also able to drive on the road as a registered vehicle.
The articulated water cart is great for off-road use in construction or agriculture environments. It’s motor and high-level of stability makes it great for steep terrains and cross-country travel. Articulated water carts have an average capacity range from 6,000L to 10,250L.
Dump truck mounted water carts are similar to truck mounted water carts - they are capable of driving on-road as a registered vehicle. As this water cart is mounted on a dump truck, it has a smaller capacity (16,000L to 20,000L) compared to other water carts such as the dino water cart.
Things to consider before hiring a water cart
Even though you know the types of water carts available for hire, there are still a few things you can do before you contact water cart hire companies. If you can, go to the site and make sure you know what work needs to be completed - try taking photos to send to contractors and speak to the project manager about the job at hand. Providing this information when you are hiring a water cart will ensure problems don't arise later.
