Published on 16 June 2015
Thunder Creek Equipment FST Series trailer

Thunder Creek Equipment has introduced the new FST series trailers, available in 500-, 750- and 990-gallon diesel capacities.

The new series combines the best of the company’s fuel, DEF and service solutions in a single design while retaining the company’s focus on craftsmanship with 7-gauge steel and double welded seams.

They are built with low profile, fully baffled fuel tanks, making them suitable for traveling both on-road at highway speeds and in off-road environments. The trailers also feature the following key improvements:

Field installed options

Most options can be installed in the field, allowing owners looking for basic fuel transportation to later build out their trailer as their needs evolve.

Expanded space

With more than double the capacity for tools and storage, these trailers have 75 cubic feet of space in the front and pump enclosures, and an additional 60 cubic feet in the optional rear utility.

Better access

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.

Tougher

The new trailers have been enhanced with a 25 percent stronger frame. Replaceable fenders and rock guard provide protection from rock chips and damage over the trailer’s life.

More towable

The fuel tanks are now taller, reducing the overall length of the trailer. The front enclosure is narrower for better maneuvering.

Improved DEF handling

The exclusive, closed loop DEF delivery system, with the two-in-one DEF pumping system, is a contaminate-free method of delivering DEF to off-highway equipment. All the company’s DEF systems are compliant with ISO 22241 standards to maintain purity. The DEF systems on this new series of trailers now feature:

  • A 100-gallon poly tank nested into the frame for a low center of gravity
  • A bidirectional pump with higher flows and auto shutoff when filling
  • The ability for DEF to freeze in the tank without causing damage
