Thunder Creek Equipment expanded its multi-tank platform of diesel fuel hauling solutions to include a new medium-duty truck body – the Multi-Tank Upfit – that can haul bulk diesel on the road without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement (Title 49 [CFR49] local regulations may apply).
Each truck is outfitted with eight independent 115-gal. tanks (920-gal. total capacity) that are only connected when a common manifold is opened at the pumping station. This allows equipment owners to safely haul and store bulk diesel on their sites, and better control their own fueling schedules/uptime.
“This is the natural evolution of the multi-tank concept, allowing contractors, heavy equipment owners and fueling services to haul diesel in the platform that makes sense for their business,” said Luke Van Wyk, vice president of sales, Thunder Creek Equipment. “This will allow fuel to be delivered in the field by trusted employees without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement.”
The new Multi-Tank Upfit is currently compatible with the Ford F550 chassis (Class 5, either with or without PTO). Thunder Creek plans on engineering the body for additional Class 5 and Class 6 trucks.
