Thunder Creek's New Fuel/DEF Delivery, Service Trailers

Thunder Creek Equipment's new FST Series trailers are available in 500-, 750- and 990-gallon diesel capacities with a 100-gallon DEF tank and an optional field-installed rear utility box. The trailers use heavy gauge steel, have patented and patent-pending designs and offer various options to match the trailer to application needs.

The rear utility box is 55 percent larger than previous designs. With their low profile and baffled fuel tanks, the trailers are suitable for traveling both on-road at highway speeds and off-road on large jobsites. FST Series trailers have 75 cubic feet of space in the front and pump enclosures, and an additional 60 cubic feet in the optional rear utility box.

The exclusive, closed-loop DEF Delivery System with patent-pending two-in-one DEF Pumping System is one of the most reliable and contamination-free methods of delivering DEF to off-highway equipment. FST Series trailers are compliant with ISO 22241 standards to maintain purity. The DEF systems on FST Series trailers now feature:

  • A 100-gallon poly tank nested into the trailer frame for a low center of gravity
  • Higher pump flows
  • Auto shut-off when filling
  • The ability for DEF to freeze in the tank without causing damage.

Hatch-style doors open to give unrestricted access to the pumping systems, controls and options. All interfaces are now positioned ergonomically at the operator’s natural height. The baffled fuel tanks are now taller, reducing the overall length of the trailer. The front enclosure is narrower for better maneuvering. 

With seven gauge steel and double-welded seams and a 25-percent stronger frame, FST Series trailers are built to withstand continual off-road use in environments ranging from oil and gas pipelines to road construction. Replaceable fenders and a rock guard provide the ultimate protection from rock chips and damage over the life of the trailer.
