Thunder Creek Equipment has completely redesigned its most comprehensive field maintenance solution for heavy equipment dealers – The Service and Lube Trailer (SLT).
DEF is not… blue.
Many companies that manufacture DEF or DEF handling equipment use the medium-blue color to distinguish their products for use with DEF, but the fluid itself is clear.
DEF is… a precise blend.
It’s 32.5% highly pure, automotive grade urea and 67.5% de-ionized water. The ISO 22241 Standard defines the clear-cut manufacturing process of DEF, along with proper handling and storing practices.
DEF freezes at 12°F (-11°C). When it freezes, it expands by approximately 7%. This can cause damage to your Thunder Creek DEF tank and pumping system. Here's the steps to winterize the DEF system on your Thunder Creek fuel and service trailer.
Last month, we unveiled the new FST Series fuel, DEF and service trailers. They feature 60+ enhancements for useability, durability and versatility. Several of the upgrades are focused around making it even easier to handle DEF in off-road environments.
Is your operation ready to handle DEF this planting season? Delivering DEF in the field can be challenging, unless you have Thunder Creek’s DEF Transport Tote in your truck bed.
Getting your Thunder Creek trailer or DEF tote ready for winter is easy. DEF freezes at 12° F (-11° C). If that occurs, you risk rupturing the DEF tank and damaging the hose and coupler as well.

Now that the EPA’s final tier of emissions standards for diesel engines has come into effect, handling diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is a reality in the daily maintenance of off-road machinery. Click the sections on the right for all the information you need to know.
Starting in 2014, every manufacturer of diesel engines in the 74-750 hp category will be using a technology called Selective Catalytic Reduction as part of their strategy to meet the final emissions standards set forth by the EPA. This technology uses a fluid called diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
Thunder Creek Equipment’s DEF delivery solutions meet the ISO 22241 standard for transporting and storing diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). They are designed and constructed in a way to protect the integrity of both the fluid and the machinery’s SCR system.
