It depends entirely on what work you need to do. Asking to buy a second hand machine is like asking to buy a vehicle..! Undecided what do you want, a tank or a reliant robin.? Get good advice...ask a  company who does it for a living...!

This will be the best advice you see on this forum
If you purchase a tank that is not crash tested due to financial reasons or preference, please fit into a trailer not a van as you could potentionally pay the highest price in a road traffic accident you could lose your life.
There is going to be sombody hurt or killed by a water tank breaking loose have a look at our crash test footage on click on safety and play comparitive test dont let it be you!!!!

Want a crash tested tank and chassis and on a budget contact Shocked

Erm..... dont believe everything you see on may be misleading.
Example; on the OTT website. you see an OTT 1000L machine being crash tested. Why is it only ~70% full of water? some 300Kg (one third of a tonne) lighter than it should have been for a bona fide crash test.
Why is that?
May I confirm on behalf of the major manufacturers that they all use FMVSS compliant fixings for their tank set ups. If you are going to do your own installation, ensure frames are corrosion resistant, as are mountings and as always, a bulkhead is a friend for life..!
