Soil Designs Turns to Thunder Creek Multi-Tank Trailers to Keep Upscale California Residential Projects Moving
By Jeremy Scott, territory sales manager, Thunder Creek Equipment
Soil Designs Inc. is a fourth-generation, family-owned contractor that develops custom pads for luxury homes in southern California. The company’s projects range from $5 million to $100 million homes, which require precision grading services including rough and finished grading, utility work, pool footings, and placing landscape elements like trees and boulders.
Earlier this year, we released a series of improvements that improve operation and durability of our most popular trailer models.
Thunder Creek is built on innovation. For a decade, we have sought to serve those who operate heavy equipment by improving the way they manage fuel and fluids. 2018 was no exception, and several industry leading publications took notice.
We have unveiled our latest platform for transporting bulk diesel, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen from Thunder Creek.
A Service & Lube Trailer comes in at a fraction of the cost of a lube truck, even when you consider the cost of the truck to haul it.
We often encounter individuals who believe a CDL is required if a truck and tow vehicle’s Gross Combined Weight Rating exceeds 26,000 lbs. or if the trailer’s Gross Vehicle Weight Rating exceeds 10,000 lbs. But this is not exactly true…
It's common knowledge that a HAZMAT endorsement is required when hauling more than 119 gallons of diesel. Many also understand that agricultural operations are usually exempt from this requirement. But there are circumstances when ag operators do, in fact, need a HAZMAT. And there are scenarios when non-ag operations can haul bulk diesel without a HAZMAT.
If you're like most Thunder Creek owners, your trailer plays a big part in controlling downtime and keeping your machines on the move. But did you know that your trailer could be doing even more to help you save time and service better?
A gas-powered pump is now available as an option on all Multi-Tank Trailers. This provides faster fueling – 30 GPM – within the No HAZMAT model platform. It’s ideal for operations who desire to operate independent from an electric power source.
Yancey Bros. Co. and Thunder Creek Equipment have reached an agreement that will make the heavy equipment dealer an official provider of Thunder Creek’s products throughout Georgia.
