QT Equipment, a single-line distributor for Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT), has unveiled its new Lube Trailer, which can reduce costs and improve flexibility for companies that perform lube services in the field. The Lube Trailer provides services similar to a traditional lube truck but at a fraction of the lifetime cost.
The lube equipment is mounted onto a trailer. Typically, traditional lube units mount this equipment on a chassis. Trailer-mounted lube equipment enables service fleets to reduce costs by avoiding expenses that come with having a separate lube truck, such as chassis maintenance, fuel, an extra driver, and insurance. It also means a reduced initial investment.
The QT Lube Trailer can deliver several fluids to the jobsite, including new oil products, salvage, and grease. This unit also has locking storage compartments and can carry items such as work lights or an air compressor. The Lube Trailer is self-powered, meaning it can work behind most service trucks or as a stand-alone unit, and it can be pulled by any truck — one ton or larger — with a simple ball or pintle hitch.
Product tanks are made of polyethylene, which is 80 percent lighter than steel. Other advantages of poly tanks include cleaner fluid storage, UV resistance, easier tank replacement, and contamination control. The tanks, which can be heated, come with a five-year warranty and can be configured with 75-, 135-, 190-, 250-, and 350-gallon sizes. Users can add a steel tank for carrying diesel fuel depending on local regulations.
