Tanker Design #9 - 3,500 gallon Tender - Northern Sunrise County, AB

Some recent discussion in our website's Members Area centered around portable dump tank storage on tankers. There certainly are a number of storage choices and we certainly get to see a variety of designs during our travels throughout North America. Back in 2014 during our seminar in Peace River, Alberta we got the chance to use St Isadore/Three Creeks VFD's 3500-gallon tender during the practical sessions on Saturday and Sunday. The tender had been built locally and was outfitted with a "winch" style design for stowing and deploying two dump tanks. The winch design was used because of the curvature of the tank. The tender and crew did a really nice job of hauling water and it was nice to see another example of "local ingenuity."

We had a similar issue getting the tank off the truck. We bought the truck as-is and added the winch.

I can send link to video operation if you want
