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.

This trailer grows with you.
Most options can be added to the FST Series trailer at anytime, including DEF and the Rear Utility Box.
Thunder Creek trailers feature a double seam welded tank with up to five baffles constructed of either 7 gauge (750 and 990 models) or 10 gauge (500 models) steel. There is a locking, vented fuel cap, free flowing tank vent, fuel level gauge. The fuel feeds from a 6" drop sump with 1/2" drain plug.
All 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.
The 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.)
The 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.
A 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.
One 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.
The 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.
Dual 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. This option is available on all 750 and 990 gallon trailers.
For 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.
The 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.
Electric / Hydraulic Jack
High flotation tires are available with the Field Max Tire Kit. These tires are a 16", 10-ply, 285 series tire rated for 3700 lbs. Available on both dual and triple axle trailers.
The 25 Micron fuel filter can be upgrade to a 10 Micron fuel filter.
Both the 12V and gas powered fuel pumping systems can be enhanced with fuel pump meters mounted with a swivel in line with the fuel nozzle. The battery powered electronic display is calibrated to read in gallons and liters with two totals: one that can be reset and one that is cumulative.
The 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.
An additional 16" 10-ply tire with a powder-coated wheel can be mounted in a protective cover above the fuel tank.
The 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.
Two 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.
Three 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.
The DEF pumping system can be enhanced with a 25' auto-retracting hose reel. Specifically designed for use with diesel exhaust fluid, it features stainless steel components and EPDM seals. Available on Standard, Utility Box, Service Special, Split Tank, Double Wall, and Service & Lube Trailers. Not available on the 500 Gallon Standard Fuel Trailer. Cannot be used in conjunction with a 50' auto-retracting fuel hose reel on Standard, Utility Box and Service Special Trailers.
A heater option is recommended for DEF delivery systems that will be exposed to prolonged temperatures below 12˚F (-11˚F). Choose one 110V heater for the 100 gallon system or two 110V heaters for the 330 gallon system. Available on Standard, Utility Box, Service Special, Split Tank, Double Wall, and Service & Lube Trailers.
Any DEF system can be enhanced with a flow meter mounted in line with the nozzle. The DEF approved digital meter provides per fill and cumulative totals. Available on the DEF Transport Tote as well as Standard, Utility Box, Service Special, Bulk DEF, Split Tank, Double Wall, and Service & Lube Trailers.
A 13 hp air compressor and generator combination with electric start can be factory installed inside any rear utility box. It produces 15.7 CFM at 175 psi and 3500 watts of electricity at 110V and 220V. This option can be further enhanced with a combination auto-retracting 50' air hose and 50' electric cord reel.
