    Default Power foldatank rack

    Any manufacturers of powered foldatank rack other than Zico? Pneumatic would be of particular interesting if there is such.

    Side walkway on tanker is rather high. Zico racks (electric or hyd.) do not get the "deployed" rack/tank down nearly close enough to the ground. And very expensive.

    Check with Toyne, Inc. They make their own ladder rack. Don't know if it would adapt to Fold A Tanks or not.

    It does Sam. Rated pretty high for a weight limit, so you can typically put ladders, pike poles, and so forth with the tank on the rack. Can be a way to save some money over having to do a Zico tank rack and a ladder rack, if that was the route you were going.

    It won't be pneumatic though. They also have some some very creative things with mechanical devices to allow a rack to drop (or being lifted) without the user having to bear the full weight of the tank and rack.

    That monster has a tank rack on one side and a ladder rack on the other.

    The nice part is they go below 90 degrees making it better to handle.

    We have a Zico power rack on our eliptical and have had no problems with it. The "deployed" height isn't an issu either...our only bitch is the weight of the tank itself, but it not so bad that 2 guys can't manage it. (It's a 3200 gal tank....which holds the capacity of the tanker). Im not saying there isn't anything equivalent out there, however..Zico makes a good proven product.

    Best of luck to ya... and no....I'm not a sales man, but I did sleep at a holiday in express last night.
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.
