Kennards Hire has introduced a new portable water tank for use with wet cut and demolition saws on job sites where water is unavailable or out of reach.
The Hose2Go portable water tank provides 20 litres of water, which is supplied to the saw by an inbuilt battery-operated pump. The hose connection is 3.6m long.
Greg McVicar, who operates Ample Fire Services, used a Hose2Go unit from Kennards Seven Hills during a fire hydrant installation for Parklea Markets in western Sydney. The job involved accessing the water mains across the road from the markets, and a demolition saw was used to make a penetration in the concrete footpath before a mini-excavator was put to work.
“This little tank holds plenty of water, but is still nice and portable. I can see it being used on jobs even where water is available, because it would save running a hose,” says McVicar.
Hose2Go was developed for Kennards by industrial design firm Kennovations and produced by its manufacturing arm, Work Smart Equipment.
The Hose2Go portable water tank for use with wet cut and demolition saws can be hired across the Kennards’ network of more than 100 branches.
