Portable Fuel Bowsers (Skid Bowsers)

Mobile Fuel Bowser For Sale

RPM Fuels and Tanks, the UK’s premier fuel tank supplier, are proud to offer an extensive range of portable fuel bowsers, including tow bowsers, and skid bowsers, for sale at a competitive price point in a wide variety of capacities, materials, and designs.

The most common mobile fuel bowser design tends to be the tow bowser – a trailer fitted with a tank designed to carry a variety of substances including diesel, petrol, kerosene, and water. Designed in both single skin and bunded formats, portable fuel bowsers most commonly take the form of a cylindrical steel tank mounted on an A-frame chassis, with two, or four wheels, used across a number of industries including agriculture, events management, and construction for refuelling.

Skid bowsers are similar to towable bowsers – but lack the towable functionality provided by a wheeled trailer. Instead, skid bowsers are more suitable for transport through lifting with a forklift, or through attachment to larger trailers.

Whether you’re seeking a skid-mounted diesel bowser, a bunded fuel bowser, or simply a method to transport your fuel from A to B, RPM has the right mobile storage tank for you. Our selection includes a number of cube, poly, skid base, and tow bowsers available in both plastic and steel in capacities up to 3000 litres, from trusted fuel tank manufacturers including Carbery, and Atlantis.

For further advice regarding your mobile fuel bowser purchase, contact one of our knowledgeable advisors on tel:01473787787, or contact us via email at sales@rpm-fuels.co.uk. We’ll be happy to assist you.

Skid Bowser FAQs

  • What is a skid bowser?

    Skid bowsers are similar to towable bowsers – but lack the towable functionality provided by a wheeled trailer. Instead, skid bowsers are more suitable for transport through lifting with a forklift, or through attachment to larger trailers. They consist of a tough steel chassis – generally equipped with pockets for lifting, and groves for fixing, and a cylindrical steel tank (available in both single skin and bunded format).

    RPM Fuels’ wide range of skid bowsers includes road legal, UN Approved, skid base diesel models for the safe and environmentally responsible transportation of diesel fuel on the highway.

  • How much are skid bowsers?

    The price of a skid bowser will vary depending on the size, type, and features required.  Whilst single skin versions suitable for site and private use only tend to be the least expensive offering on the market, UN certified skid bowsers are typically placed at a higher price point.

    RPM fuel’s range of steel and plastic skid bowsers ranges from approximately £395 to £3195 in accordance with the above factors. In addition to this, RPM fuels provide bespoke steel skid bowsers constructed to your exact requirements. Estimated prices for these tanks will be provided upon consultation.

  • What can skid bowsers be used for?

    Fuel specific skid bowsers are most commonly used as a transportable refuelling station within the agricultural, transportation, and construction industries, or for general fuel transport from one location to another (depending on the skid bowser’s UN certification status).

    Skid bowsers able to hold water can be used for transportation, and, when fitted with the correct equipment, dust suppression, plant watering,  and pressure washing. For the above reasons, skid bowsers able to hold water are commonly seen in agriculture, site maintenance, and construction.
