Polymaster has bulk diesel storage covered

It’s not rocket science that buying diesel in bulk can save you money.

Some farmers have reported saving up to 25 cents per litre* when comparing to pumping at the station. If you’re using 60,000 to 100,000 litres each year, you could be saving up to $30,000. That’s much better in your pocket than someone else’s!

Having bulk diesel on your farm saves a lot of hassles, not to mention the reduction in downtime thanks to the convenience of the tank on site.

Which tank suits you?

There are many different diesel tanks on the market to choose from, all with different options – from the basic tank where you add your own pump, through to fancy units with all the bells and whistles. Each have their own pros and cons.

So, which best suits you? The short answer is one that is reliable, never misses a beat, has all essential equipment included and doesn’t break the bank.

The Polymaster 10K Diesel Essential self-bunded tank ticks all the criteria.

Proudly family owned and designed and manufactured in Australia for over 26 years, Polymaster has a reputation of building tanks to last. Polymaster tanks are shipped Australia-wide, across the Tasman and into parts of Asia.

Designed and built to last with a five-year tank warranty, the Diesel Essential will give you years of reliable fuel dispensing on farm and is packed with tried and true pieces of equipment.

The Diesel Essential is fully kitted out at the factory, so all you need to do is connect to power and have the tanker fill it up. Features include:

  • quality Italian Piusi 240V pump up to 70LPM – the most reliable diesel pump brand in the world
  • 6mtr hose with automatic trigger nozzle
  • digital level indicator
  • bund alarm
  • mechanical overfill protection – prevents overfilling and spills
  • 2” camlock and ball valve for quick filling – suits all tanker trucks
  • 30micron water capture filter – ensures your equipment is getting clean fuel
  • mechanical fluid meter – record dispensing to equipment
  • lockable secure cabinet to house equipment – to keep unwanted guests borrowing your diesel
  • external bunded tank and cabinet constructed of UV sun tough material – also flame retardant and built to withstand Australian conditions.

The Diesel Essential tank joins the already successful Ranger and Quantum family of bulk storage diesel tanks, offering an affordable above ground double walled tank, designed for rural Australia.

These tanks are designed with safety on the farm and ease of use in mind. The double wall technology protects your diesel and creates a barrier from accidental bumps/collisions with equipment. The outer tank is also constructed of a specially formulated flame-retardant polymer.

Storage solutions for all situations

Polymaster also manufacture a wide range of other diesel tank and pump solutions to suit a variety of different uses, including;

Portable ute packs
Ranging from 100 to 800 litres, these units are all equipped with Piusi designed pumps and are perfect for the back of the ute. The cube-style sits perfectly in the tub of a dual cab and can be fitted with a secondary bund for added security.

Transfer tanks
Ranging from 600 to 3000 litres, these units are the go-between storage solutions that can be filled by the Essential unit then run out to the header in the paddock, saving you time. These are also fitted with the Piusi pumps.

Diesel trailers
Ranging from 1200 to 2000 litres, these trailer units sit on a tough hot-dipped galvanised frame with dual axle, electric brakes, lights and reflectors. The Piusi pump, meter, hose and auto nozzle are stored securely in a lockable toolbox at the front of the trailer.

*On bulk deliveries, rather than stopping at the service station. A 10,000ltr tank can pay for itself after 6 bulk diesel deliveries.
