This current standardised version of the Category 6 tanker has been rolled out across the state since the prototype spent time in field over 2012/13. The Cat 6 tanker features a pump essentially the same as a Category 1 tanker, with the addition of a bumber mounted monitor controlled remotely from inside the cab. A water tank of 9000L capacity is roughly double that of a Cat 1 and close to the 11,000L bulk water tankers.
The features allow for great flexibility and efficiency with a small crew.
