Stable Water Wagon Uses ADT Components

John Deere's new 300D water wagon features a low center of gravity due to its long, low tank and an extended truck frame. According to the manufacturer, the unit’s six-wheel-drive Deere power train delivers excellent traction, gradeability and fuel efficiency; a standard transmission retarder extends brake life. The 300D also is easier to transport since it is shorter than scraper-towed machines. The 300D is equipped with a 7,000-gallon pin-in tank and a Tier 3 certified John Deere PowerTech Plus turbocharged diesel rated at 285 net hp. The truck’s operating weight is 49,100 lb. A water cannon, hose reel and side spray are among many options available. John Deere is partnering with Mega Corp., a leading supplier of off-highway water tanker conversions, to produce the new water wagon.
