Newest rental fleet equipment includes pole, reel trailers for serving energy, utility, telecom sectors

Premier Truck Rental (PTR), a nationwide commercial truck and trailer rental company, recently added pole and reel trailers to its rental fleet.

PTR has provided equipment rentals for more than 25 years while serving multiple industries across the United States, including construction, electrical, pipeline, government and renewable energy sectors.

Earlier this year, PTR introduced the Fat Truck to its rental lineup, becoming one of the first companies in the US to sell and rent this all-terrain, amphibious vehicle. With 2,200 pounds of available payload, the Fat Truck offers seating for up to eight people.

“Being a part of customers’ growth and success by providing them with first-class service, new products and custom upfits is very important to us,” said Rob Troxel, PTR president. “We listen to our customers and respond with new product offerings based on their recommendations. It’s something we take very seriously.”

Manufactured by Brindle Products, PTR’s new utility trailers include three models of pole trailers with the capability to transport poles up to 75 feet long, and a max payload of up to 30,000 pounds. Also, six different types of reel trailers, including self-loading single reel trailers, three- and four-position reel-hauling/tension rigs, and combination cargo/reel/transformer carriers capable of handling a variety of tasks.

“Our customers are currently working a variety of different projects,” Troxel said. “These include 5G framework implementation, new power line transmission and distribution projects (both overhead and underground), multiple pipeline construction projects and large renewable energy systems, both solar and wind farm construction.

“These industries require pickups, utility bodies, flatbeds, dump trucks, reel carriers, service trucks and more. PTR has the products to fit these project demands.”
