With Thunder Creek's utility fuel trailers you can minimize downtime by refueling and servicing your equipment in the field.

Utility box trailers start with the same rugged, towable design of Thunder Creek's 750 and 990 gallon fuel trailers and add a rear utilty box for servicing equipment on the go. The utility box is empty in the standard configuration and can be enhanced with a number of factory-installed options, including Thunder Creek's Air N Arc® 190 3-in-1 welder / compressor / generator.

Popular upgrades to these trailers include a 40 GPM gas powered pump, 50' auto-retracting hose reel, aluminum wheels and DEF Delivery Solutions.

trailerAll Standard, Utility Box and Service Special trailers have a front toolbox with lockable, weather-sealed doors and LED lighting that is activated with a door switch.  The trailers are built on a 6" formed chassis. They ride on torsion axles with EZ Lube hubs and feature electric brakes on both axles and a breakaway safety system. The standard tires are 16" 10-ply tires with gray powder coated steel wheels. The 500 gallon model has a 5,000 lb. jack; the 750 and 990 gallon models have a 8,000 lb. jack.  All are equipped with safety tow chains, an adjustable 2 5/16" ball hitch, and conduit wrapped wiring.
pumping systemThe standard pumping system includes a 25 GPM industrial grade 12V pump, 35' auto-retracting hose reel with 1" diameter hose, a 25 Micron fuel filter, 12' power cables and a deep cycle marine battery. (Battery can be charged off of truck connection or with optional Solar Charging Panel.)
finishThe standard paint on is a dual coat of gray polyurethane with the option to upgrade to a single custom paint color. The trailers are finished with diamond plate rock guard on the front toolbox and fenders, chrome door handles, LED side and rear lights, conspicuity tape, and DOT safety placards.
utility boxA box is added on the back of all utility and service special trailers adding 27.6 cu. ft. of space on 750 gallon models and 36.5 cu. ft. on 990 gallon models. The space remains empty in the standard trailer configuration. Options are available to factory-install the Thunder Creek compressor / generator, the Thunder Creek Air N Arc® 190 3-in-1 welder / compressor / generator as well as a variety of air hose and electric cord options.
40 gpm gas pumpOne of the most popular options! This electric start gas powered pump allows for a flow rate of up to 40 GPM drastically reducing the time spent refueling in the field.
50 foot auto retracting hose reelThe standard 35' auto-retracting hose reel can be replaced with a 50' version with 1" diameter hose mounted on a spring-loaded, auto-retracting reel.  Note: due to space limitations in the front toolbox, this option cannot be used in conjunction with the 25' auto-retracting DEF hose reel.
aluminum wheelsUpgrade to aluminum wheels from the standard powder-coated steel wheels. Available in both 6 and 8 bolt configurations, depending on the trailer. Note: Lug nuts should be tightened after the first 100 miles to 110 ft. lbs. 
auxiliary oil tanksDual oil tanks can be mounted above the front toolbox. The tanks have either a 30 gallon capacity (bumper hitch trailers) or 50 gallon capacity (gooseneck trailers). Oil is pumped through two 12V pumps located inside the front toolbox.
battery kitFor use with the 12V pumping system, the battery kit provides an alternative means of power. Installed in an enclosed battery case inside the front toolbox, the deep cycle marine battery is hard wired to trickle charge off the trailer connection. Even with the battery kit installed, it is still possible to connect the electric pump directly to an alternate source of power.
custom paint colorThe standard gray paint can be upgraded to any of the following single custom colors: Black, Tractor Blue, Tractor Green, Tractor Red, Tractor Yellow, Construction Yellow and White. Please note: Double Wall and Service & Lube Trailers all feature a black frame.

safety kitThe Safety Kit consists of a fire extinguisher and spill clean-up kit stored on the top shelf inside the front toolbox.  This option is available on all 750 and 990 gallon trailers. 
spare tireAn additional 16" 10-ply tire with a powder-coated wheel can be mounted in a protective cover above the fuel tank.
tool caddy for front toolboxThe tool caddy holds an assortment of oil containers, aerosol cans and small tools in one convenient location. It is mounted to the hinges on the inside of the passenger side door and can be retrofitted on existing trailers.
work light kitTwo exterior halogen flood lights with a magnetic base provide exterior lighting when servicing equipment.  Lights connect to two 12V power outlets in the front toolbox. 
def delivery systemThree options are available for adding a Diesel Exhaust Fluid delivery system to your 750 or 990 gallon Thunder Creek trailer.  A 100 gallon or 330 gallon tank mounted between the front toolbox and the fuel tank (330 gallon tank is a special order item) or a 60 gallon tank mounted above the front toolbox, which is a retrofit option.
 
Thunder Creek's patent-pending 2-in-1 DEF pumping system is the only DEF pump you'll need.  It allows you to fill your trailer from your DEF tote or shuttle using a MicroMatic coupler, then switch valve and nozzle and dispense DEF to your Tier 4 equipment.
 
Because DEF is easily contaminated, which can lead to malfunction in your equipment's SCR system, every Thunder Creek DEF system meets ISO 22241 standards.  Learn more about DEF Solutions from Thunder Creek.
