A fuel and lube truck, also known as a service truck, is primarily used to support heavy equipment and machinery in industries such as construction, mining, and forestry. Its purpose is to provide fuel, lubricants, and other necessary fluids to keep your fleet of heavy equipment operating efficiently.
Fuel and lube trucks are equipped with various compartments and tanks that store different types of fluids, including diesel fuel, engine oil, hydraulic fluid, coolant, grease, and more. These trucks are designed to carry a large quantity of these fluids, ensuring that equipment can be fueled and lubricated on-site, without the need to return to a centralized refueling or maintenance facility.
The truck typically contains dispensing systems, such as pumps, reels, and hoses, which allow operators to easily transfer fluids to the equipment that needs servicing. This helps in reducing downtime and increasing productivity by eliminating the need for equipment to travel long distances for refueling or lubrication. All maintenance can be done directly on your job site.
In addition to providing fuel and lubricants, fuel and lube trucks often come equipped with other features like air compressors, grease guns, and waste oil collection systems. These additional capabilities allow for routine maintenance tasks such as tire inflation, greasing of bearings, and the removal of used oil or other waste fluids.
