Austin water tanks are constructed from heavy-duty material, making them suitable for dust suppression and firefighting applications. The modules can be mounted on a variety of 6×6 road articulated or off-highway trucks, maintaining correct axle splits for load distribution.

Available in customised water litre capacity,  for all spray equipment models. 


Austin’s patented Stairway Access Tank (SAT) takes safety and stability to a new level. The innovative baffle design decreases the effects of surging, increasing truck stability and operator confidence.

Unlike traditional water tank modules, the SAT has larger baffle openings with a direct line of travel, improving the safety of confined space maintenance work. All baffled areas are easily accessed via large, in-line, doorless manways, making it easier to perform regular inspections and maintenance.

Other features include:

  • Interlocked, corrugated baffles for increased structural integrity for longer life
  • Stair access from the top of the water tank into the tank interior for improved safety
  • Larger baffle openings with a direct line of travel to improve safety when performing confined space maintenance work
  • Hinged access covers on fill port with integrated safety handrails
  • Flat tank floor to reduce personnel entrapment
  • Optional ventilation fan system for ventilation ports for reduced repair time
  • Tank sides channeled for strength for extended life
  • Large fill port located in a recessed channel behind the water dam improving productivity


Austin’s water tanks are designed with an innovative baffle, virtually eliminating the effects of surging and creating a lighter weight tank. This results in additional payload and reduced operating costs.

Tank access is ergonomic and safe and the large fill port ensures that any overfill flows away from the cab and deck to the rear of the truck.

Other features include:

  • Hoist cylinders to fully raise the tank for maintenance
  • Non-slip surface on the tank deck
  • Access landing and self-closing gate to top deck area for increased safety
  • Manual suction shut-off valve allowing pump module removal without draining the water tank
  • Rear-mounted spring rewind hose reel
  • Spray heads controlled via cabin control box
  • Remote control tank-mounted water cannon
  • Fast fill cubicle with a mesh strainer and rectangular funnel
  • Auxiliary bottom fill point with butterfly valve and camlock fitting allowing pump filling from sumps
  • Manual rapid dump valve suitable for flushing debris from the tank
