Dry-Side Tanker


Water Hauling Workhorse. 


To transfer a lot of water – but with options – the Pierce Dry-Side Tanker is what you need. It has the durability and performance synonymous with the Pierce Pumper and can carry from 1500 to 4000 gallons of water. Its corrosion-resistant poly tank is protected with superior finished aluminum side sheets that aid in mounting equipment. 

The Dry-Side Tanker can carry ladders or equipment on both sides, has numerous compartments that can handle up to 500 lbs of equipment and contains storage space for much needed hose lines. 

Pierce uses multiple rear axle locations for optimal weight distribution and the tank’s flat sides help prevent rollovers. In addition, the water tank poly baffling system that Pierce installs inside the tanks help provide a superior ride.
