Portable Tank System

ZIAMATIC CORP. has introduced the Model PTS-HA hydraulic portable tank system. With the PTS-HA, Zico combines its portable tank system design with the added strength and reliability of self-contained hydraulic actuators that create a stronger, more rigid system, allowing for a hard cover and one hard sleeve to be mounted directly to the tank box. The system securely stores a portable tank over the side compartments of an apparatus and lowers to a convenient height at the flip of a switch for quick, easy and safe tank retrieval.
