Do you think the 250 is a good price for this tank?
Posted by gibbouk (gibbouk), 15 November 2003
i reckon its about right from what andrews sell theres at.  600 is way over the top as a value i think

for any one who is interested this is my tank!!!  i can make you a tank, baffled, with any drain plugs you need, any fittings you need, extra plates so you can fit pumps (which i sell also) hose reels etc to, the tanks are light, and really strong. perfect for pole systems, pressure washing, and carpet cleaning. there is a 4 week waiting list at present though.

Shocked..I don`t know what you guys want a tank for, if not only to transport water, but why don`t you go to your local pallet yard, they usually do ibis tanks...the ones with the metal cage around them for those who may not know...they start at about 600 ltrs and go to about 1200 ltrs..all with a tap on that you can fit hoselocks to...all in all about 40 / 50...Have Fun...

what system are you using
Posted by wreelyclean_servic (Wreelyclean Services), 13 January 2004
Grin..A bog standard transit will carry a 600ltr tank....the tank fits between the wheel arches and all you have to do is choc it in with blocks of wood...

If you get a 1000ltr tank I would plum for a 120 / 150 tranny as they have uprated springs..

Simple really....Tank...Water....Hose to steam cleaner...Pressure hose to lance/flat surface cleaner.. Wink

Work smart not hard.. Grin

The transit 120 I believe has a payload of approximately 1200kg (it is the older model)
If this is the case, as bodystyle and wheelbase effects absolute payload (check vin plate) then a 1000L system when full, with passengers, ladders , roof rack, ladders, poles, bulkhead. etc etc will make you illegal (overweight) and liable to a hefty fine if caught.
I will not mention restraint systems here, but do recommend that all vans are fitted with bulkheads for operator protection; they are cheap, effective and prevent funerals.

Shocked Shocked..oops...forgot to mention all mine are chocced against the sides and the bulkheads in all my vans....I even have chimney vents for the fumes off the steam cleaners...sorry!

They also sit in aluminium trays, I have devised, with a drainage point, thereby increasing the longevity of the vans due to water spillages never actually sitting in the vans and rotting them....

If I thought that I would have to point out the friggin obvious to people I would seriously doubt there own ability to run their own business at anything like a profit.
