What is a Bulk Water Cart?

A bulk water cart is a purpose-built vehicle used to load, transport, discharge and distribute large quantities of water in a controlled manner

Bulk Water Cart operations are undertaken on every worksite for a variety of reasons and can hold over 28,000 litres of water at one time.

The operations will match the needs of your site, and will adhere to the project plans and environmental requirements. 

Bulk Water Carts often work in conjunction with other plant items to ensure successful operations on the site.

It is important to follow all appropriate procedures and guidelines when operating a bulk water cart. This will ensure the water cart is operated within applicable guidelines and that work is conducted in a safe manner.
