 Why we love slip-on water carts, and you should too! FloodRite Poly Tanks by TTi



What’s all this talk in the industry about making use of your tipper as a water cart? Good question! ‘Slip-on’ water carts is a buzz term in the industry right now… And rightly so!  Yes, we acknowledge there is still a big need for dedicated water trucks, and there always will be, however for the smaller operator who doesn’t have a need for a water cart all year round, the slip-on, slip-off convenience of a TTi water cart is the ultimate answer.

Why is it the answer?

The self loading leg system means that you don’t need any other heavy machinery to slide the unit in and out

The roller wheels on the front of the frame allow it to easily slide up the floor of the tipper body

Each unit comes with the option of a locking bar to utilise the airlocks on the back of the tipper. This secures the unit from wanting to slide out.

 


Here’s a quick checklist to ensure your tipper is ready to slip on a water cart:
» Confirm your truck has air. This is to run the solenoids. If not, there are options of ‘electric only solenoids’
» Confirm the width of your tipper body (a 10,000 or 13,000L unit require 2250mm). Some aluminium tipper bodies will have a lip around the top of the body which reduces the width slightly.
» Confirm the GVM of your truck
» Check the voltage of your truck, is it 12 or 24 volt?


And that’s about all there is to it!

 

Once you take delivery of your water cart there are a few small things you will need to do:
» Cut an airline somewhere at the back of the truck and insert the quick connect T piece. The units is supplied with a length of airline. There is no need to regulate the pressure through this line as the unit has its own pressure regulator installed.
» Supply power to the Anderson plug on the unit
» Secure the unit into the tipper and away you go!
