Leading Edge® Folding Frame Portable Tanks
the Future of folding frame Drop Tanks
New Husky® Leading Edge® Tank (US Patent No. 10,913,597) is the multipurpose portable firefighting water drop tank of the future. The LE Tank is built like a Classic Folding Frame Tank that can be quickly transformed into a narrower tank, making it the perfect choice for water shuttle operations on narrow streets. Our specially-designed frame allows you to take any size Folding Frame Tank and partially fold one side creating a narrower tank that gives more options for set-up, including back roads, which will allow traffic to pass without driving in a ditch.
Best of Both Worlds
The good news is there is no assembly! It works just like a Classic Folding Frame Tank but folds one more time. If you do not need the narrow-style tank, keep it as a full-size folding frame water tank. You get the best of both tanks in one easy-to-use tank. Our standard fold-down dimension is 8' wide, our Skinny® Tank width, but we can create a tank to fold down to any dimension desired, just let us know!
Available Drain Tubes
Husky folding frame tanks are available with the drain tubes mounted for inside or outside use. Standard tanks come with the drain tube mounted on the outside. If you would like your tank built with the drain tube on the inside, just let us know, and we will accommodate at no charge.
Easy Life Handles
Husky® Folding Water Tanks include our exclusive Easy Lift Handles (US Patent No. 8,746,478 and US Patent 10,518,967 ) and Quick-Release Drain Tube, making Husky® the easiest to handle folding water tank on the market.
