Benefits and Installation

Our Bul-Tuf® fiberglass tanks have been produced in Laurel, Montana since 1978. They are currently in service in all western states. Many of the tanks were installed over 30 years ago and are still functional on livestock operations today. They are unaffected by exposure to wind, sun, and freezing temperatures.

Strong & Lasting Construction

Bul-Tuf® tanks will not corrode or rust, come as seamless one-piece units, and are pound for pound stronger than steel.  Because they are corrosion resistant, the need for extra corrosion protection in the form of paint and internal coatings is eliminated.  Delivered without any seams, Bul-Tuf® tanks greatly reduce the risk of environmental contamination due to leaks or spills.

Economical

Our Bul-Tuf® tanks represent an excellent value when compared to steel tanks.  Bul-Tuf® fiberglass tanks from LFM weigh approximately 60% less than steel tanks.  This makes installation easier and less time consuming, saving the customer money in the long run.  Also, our fiberglass tanks save money because they are durable and have a longer service life than steel, metal, or poly tanks.

Quality Built Right-In

Bul-Tuf® tanks are strong, durable, and designed and manufactured to comply with government specifications, in approved colors. They are delivered to you ready to use with molded-in small animal escape ramps, and without any adapters, major installation equipment, or extra materials. Additionally, they are highly maneuverable, and light enough to be manually installed without extensive piping wherever water is available. Bul-Tuf tanks are stackable, with tapered sidewalls and stacking blocks that make storage easy.
