Rockhampton Regional Council needed a solution that allowed maximum water to the job site. When the water truck is away on a fill cycle the road reclaimer and other expensive plant is stopped. They needed a solution with greater capacity that was able to allow the whole team to work more productively. Obviously here, as in many other oplaces, cycle times were long due to the distances to reliable surface water.
Felco developed a truck and dog combination that carries 30,000 litres. Water can be transferred from the truck to the dog or back on the move and this allows the operator to keep weight over the drive at all times. Both are individually plumbed so that either can be used independantly... or as a combination. In tight situations obviously the dog is removed allowing greater monouverability.
The unit is working well and suits the application well.
