Field Service Made Easy

08/19/2013 @ 4:29pm

Thunder Creek Equipment adds to its line of trailers with the introduction of a new trailer designed specifically for in-field equipment service.

“This trailer is all about minimizing the time needed to service equipment in the field, without the capital investment that comes with a dedicated lube truck,” says Mike VanderLinden, with Thunder Creek Equipment.

The trailer holds 440 gallons of fluid in combinations of 25-, 55-, and 110-gallon capacities. Up to eight tanks can be used for various oils, lubricants, oil reclaim, as well as antifreeze, diesel fuel, and diesel exhaust depending on your needs. Grease systems are also available.

Pumping systems are protected by two hatch doors located on either side of the trailer. Pneumatic pumps are powered by a combination compressor and generator in the rear utility box. You can upgrade to Thunder Creek’s Air N Arc 150, a combination welder, air compressor, and generator, for more versatility when maintaining equipment in the field.

The front toolbox, located in the nose of the trailer, has a used filter drain pan and space for additional equipment needed to service machinery.

With a basic setup, prices start at $25,000. Price varies based on the configuration of the service and lube trailer.
