UWS, which manufactures and designs truck tool boxes and accessories, recently released a new transfer tank design.
These exclusive, new combo transfer tanks feature a dual construction of steel and aluminum. Both the steel tank and built-in aluminum combo tool box feature a smooth, mill finish. The new steel transfer tanks also are available in L-shaped and rectangle configurations, and in two finish options, black or white powder coat.
The new steel combo transfer tank is constructed from 14-gauge steel, allowing for dependable transfer of liquids to on-site vehicles and equipment. These tanks also come with a built-in tool box. However, instead of the tool box being constructed from steel, it is made from .08-inch aluminum. Without the added weight of the steel tool box, the entire unit weighs less—up to 100 pounds less than competitive models, the company said—keeping added weight off the truck.
The steel-aluminum combo tanks also feature a smooth, mill finish. This makes them distinct from other transfer tank options that have the more common diamond plate finish. The smooth surface offers a sleek look in the truck bed, and it is available in two powder coat finish options: black or white.
UWS is also adding L-shaped steel transfer tanks and rectangle steel transfer tanks. All tanks are made in the USA and are fully pressure-tested for safety. They come with a lockable commercial-grade cap, built-in drain plug and internal baffles for smooth flow of liquids. All the steel transfer tanks also come with welded lifting hooks, making it easier to relocate the tank in and out of the truck bed.
