TAILORED AND COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS
Some vehicle suppliers simply stock and sell standard vehicles. Not us. At Shermac, we create tailored solutions and custom-designed vehicles, we believe that it’s the only way to provide the best value for money and performance in the field. We’ll first consult with you to establish your strategic, operational, and budgetary requirements to build the ideal water cartage vehicle or fleet that saves you time and money.
PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, FLEXIBILITY
Our water trucks are custom designed and extensively tested to ensure optimum weight distribution and performance on any chassis, no matter how tough the environment or challenge. From 6,000 litre skid-in water carts, through to large off-road water carts, all of our water trucks are engineered to your unique technical specs. This gives you the freedom to custom-configure your vehicle to suit your practical requirements and augment your fleet.
Our water carts are ergonomically designed to be easy to use and maintain, with useful features such cab controls and unique single point servicing, making life easier for operators.
Based on our consultation with you, we’ll design and manufacture your water cart, ensuring it’s built to suit your specific purpose and is perfectly equipped to meet any cartage and dust suppression challenge in the field.
Shermac actively optimises operator ergonomics and safety on all its vehicles. All of our water trucks are built to Australian Standards and are packed with safety features such as safety railing, ROPS, a battery isolator, cat-style jump start receptacle, a first aid box, and emergency stop buttons to help safeguard the operator.
Every element in every truck we design has been engineered to perform with heavy-duty use in the harshest conditions. For example, our tanks feature curved sides to provide extra integrity.
WATER APPLICATION SYSTEMS
Our water application systems include left and right batter sprays, horizontal central fan sprays, hydraulic or electric controlled water cannons (with optional foam injection system), customised dribble bar options, optional front sprays, and scope for any additional custom spray kits you may require.
All of our vehicles are designed and engineered to maximize the truck chassis capacity, but stay within the boundaries of the law and the vehicle ratings. Our knowledge on road rules, weight restrictions and loading limits is applied to every water cart build here at Shermac.
Our dribble bars come with three standard options; left and right drop bar with poly spray bars, full-width gravity fed dribble bar, and full-width pressure fed spray bar, with industrial spray nozzles. These can be customised to suit any application.
Our user-friendly access stairs and railings are designed to AS 1657-1992, and provide safe and efficient access to tank lids from the top of the module. Our semi’s are built with a unique single-point servicing feature so there is just one convenient location for all your grease points.
Our standard hydraulic powered centrifugal water pumps are mounted at the front of the tank unit to avoid corrosive water spray damage.
TANK FILL SYSTEM
Refilling is simple, with a top-fill funnel for standpipe filling and a water level gauge fitted on the front of the tank.
OPTIONAL SELF FILL
This optional system includes a self-fill option with 3” camlock connection and valves to direct flow from water source via pump, into the tank.
All of our water carts include a conveniently placed in-cab spray and cannon control panel, providing total operating control from the comfort of the cabin.
Configure the lighting solution that’s right for your operations. We offer LED combination tail lights, side marker lights, and a number plate light, as well as mine spec lighting options (high-level tail lights, work light kit, and amber beacon front and rear).
PAINT / APPEARANCE
Specify your vehicle’s colour. We grit blast and paint our water carts to the highest industry standards, including a two-pack epoxy paint system internally and externally, with optional corrosion protection systems for operation in corrosive site conditions.
BALL BAFFLE SYSTEM
The optional ball baffle system reduces fluid movement for improved load stability, and offers innovative liquid surge protection for safer liquid cartage in any type of tank.
Our robust rubber wheel guards provide another level of go-anywhere-do-anything protection for our tough and durable semi water carts.
We provide a range of additional options that enable you to create the perfect water cartage solution, every time. These options include: reverse cameras, hose reels with variable spray nozzles, bull bars, rear flashing lights, spare tyre carriers, foam injection systems for water cannon, diaphragm spray heads, poly skid-in tanks, window tints… and more!
