Testimonials

  • Our RCCF grant recipients in Stirling North who purchased one of your 800 litre Fire Fighting Units, recently put it to good use to prevent the spread of a fire on his neighbours' property. He rang to say that he was very impressed with how well the unit operated, as was the local CFS brigade who was subsequently going to enquire about purchasing the same item.

    - Fire & Emergency Services Commission
  • Many thanks Ross. What fantastic service you have provided. You’ve gone above and beyond.

    - Jenny Schwieger
  • My TTi spray trailer is exceptionally well designed and constructed. In my view it is an essential piece of equipment if you own a substantial garden or small farm. Being time poor, spraying used to be a real chore, but since I purchased my TTi spray rig I can do my spraying effectively and efficiently!

    - Charles Hart/Kialla
  • I’m glad I decided to buy with TTi! Great product, and hassle free service.

  • My client bought the TTi Fire Attack unit and is very happy with it. It’s ready to be lowered onto his Hilux if there’s ever a fire.

    – Eltham Waterhouse
  • I bought the Fire Patrol trailer after receiving a great deal of enquiries for it last year. I like how it’s off-road but can be made registrable.
