Tips and guides to help you find the right water cart

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right water cart for your job

1. What is a water cart?

Water carts have a specialised use - they hold water in a storage unit, spray water with water cannons and cab operated batter sprays to suppress dust, and transport water across construction and mining projects. Water carts operate by mounting a water tank to the body of a truck or dump truck with multiple hose and cannon attachments. Water carts are available for hire through iSeekplant for your next construction or mining project.
