Far West (based at Nundroo) took delivery of a refurbished Bulk Water Carrier yesterday morning.

The new Far West BW7 is based on a 2009 Isuzu FTR900 chassis, is 4 x 2 and carries 7000 litres of water.

Originally built by A.J. Stock, it is fitted with a Deutz F2L2011 motor / Darley HE500 pump.

It comes fitted with a halo protection and in-cab breathing systems, driving lights and an Engel fridge.

It was previously based at Caralue Group.

It replaces the existing 42 year old Volvo based BW7, which will be sent to salvage.

Thanks Braeden Gatt for the photo.
