Thunder Creek Equipment introduces new FST Series Trailers available in 500-, 750- and 990-gallon diesel capacities with a host of field installable options like a 100-gallon DEF delivery system and rear utility box.
The FST Series combines the best of Thunder Creek’s fuel, DEF and service solutions in a single design while retaining the company’s focus on craftsmanship with seven gauge steel, double welded seams, patented/patent-pending designs and premium options that allow farmers to spec each trailer to meet the demands of their operation.
Just like all Thunder Creek trailers, 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 FST Series also features 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. Even the rear utility box, which is now 55 percent larger than previous designs, can be installed on any FST Series Trailer at any. Options for the utility box include a 3-in-1 welder/compressor/generator or 2-in-1 compressor/generator, tool storage chests, can and towel rack and a work bench with vise.
With more than double the capacity for tools and storage, FST Series Trailers have 75 cu. ft. of space in the front and pump enclosures, and an additional 60 cu. ft. in the optional rear utility.
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.
Thunder Creek has always been known for being durable enough to withstand continual off-road use. The FST Series Trailers have been enhanced with a 25 percent stronger frame. Replaceable fenders and rock guard provide the ultimate protection from rock chips and damage over the trailer’s life.
The fuel tanks are now taller reducing the overall length of the trailer. The front enclosure is narrower for better maneuvering. This makes for one of the most towable trailers on the market today.
Improved DEF Handling
The exclusive, closed loop DEF Delivery System with patent-pending 2-in-1 DEF Pumping System is a contaminate-free method of delivering DEF to off-highway equipment. All Thunder Creek DEF systems are compliant with ISO 22241 Standards to maintain purity. The DEF systems on FST Series 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 shut-off when filling.
- The ability for DEF freeze in the tank without causing damage.
Thunder Creek offers the largest selection of options to reduce downtime in the field. These can now be purchased in packages, which can save as much as 20 percent.
