Firefighting Water Carts at Moxey Farms

Moxey Farms is based in rural NSW and is one of Australia’s leading dairy farms. A family run farm with a long history, Moxey Farms started out in 1919 as a small farm with 20 cows and is now an innovative global dairy business with over 10,000 cows encompassing 3 substantial farm properties. The largest farm lies in central NSW and includes over 6000 milking cows alongside crops to feed the resident dairy cows. Moxey contacted the team at Durotank to discuss the options of using water carts for firefighting. With the principal farm in close proximity to Durotank, the team were keen to support local business with quality Australian made products and offer the best solution and price to Moxey Farms that competitors could not match.

Being situated in the rural heart of NSW and at the mercy of scorching summer heat, Moxey Farms were interested in firefighting tools that could safeguard key harvesting equipment on each farm. To ensure maximum protection, water carts needed to be always full and on standby ready for action should a fire start.

Due to their specific requirements Durotank suggested the 1200L Poly Water Trailer as the best fit. This meant that in an emergency, any vehicle on-site could tow the water carts full of water to the required location for fire-fighting usage. To align with the role of emergency equipment, we suggested a red powder-coat finish to help water carts standout, be associated with emergency usage and be readily located. We also offered custom signage for the trailers.

Moxey were really happy with the suggested products and the rationale behind them and purchased 3 x 1200L Poly Water Trailers, one for each farm property. Following delivery and customer follow up, Moxey Farms gave the Durotank team a 10/10 score for service and products. From the initial sales process to quoting, delivery and the finished product, Moxey Farms were impressed by the consistent quality of the products, service and the competitive pricing. The result? Moxey Farms are keen to continue to support local and their longstanding relationship with their country neighbours Durotank.

I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure


Ben Harris – AB Contract Farming

The Duro Cubes are going extremely well! My guys are very happy with them. Having them already saved us on oil transport on at least 2 occasions so far and has also allowed us to restructure our oil work days and use out of hours oil deliveries to make more efficient use of the time on site.

As a business owner I would highly recommend DUROTANK to any person who is serious about saving money, purchasing and storing their own fuel in bulk, particularly in today’s challenging economic times. DUROTANK supplied us an excellent quality Australian made fuel tank built to the specs that suited out business. Our staff love how easy it is to use and how much time it saves refuelling each week.
