Water Cart Dry Hire

A water cart allows you to carry & distribute water. Whether you work in the mining or construction industry, you will benefit from using a water cart for your business. In particular, the Pilbara where the surroundings of must mine sites are consumed by wind-fueled clouds red dust which can be reduced by regular ground watering.

Dust Minimisation

Water carts are also great for dust control. They have a few spray nozzles, which deliver water to specific sites. It is why they are preferred when hydrating mines.

Often, water carts are categorised into two types: dump or tipper truck-mounted and road truck mounted.

Both are used in the construction industry mostly. Road truck-mounted water carts function like any other vehicle. It means that they can travel on the road because they are registered. For this reason, some businesses choose this type of water cart since it is convenient to use them for a long-distance journey, for instance.

However, some construction professionals opt for tipper truck-mounted water cart because of its capacity. Using a road registered car will only allow up to 20,000 litres of water. On the other hand, dump trucks are huge, and they can carry more litres of water.

The core function of using water carts is to hold large volumes of water. Usually, cartage services require such transport of water, which is contained in a mounted apparatus.

Some of these cartage services include:

  • Suppressing dust
  • Hauling water
  • Filling pools or tanks.
  • Having a water cart ready also lets you deliver water during compaction or in a landscaping project.

Whether you need dust control on your construction site or you continuously require water for a road construction job, you can find the water cart you can hire here at ESM Resources.
