Lube Trailer Reduces Costs

Staff | September 28, 2010

Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT) single-line distributor QT Equipment recently unveiled its new Lube Trailer, which can provide services similar to a traditional lube truck but at a fraction of the lifetime cost.

The lube equipment is mounted onto a trailer. Typically, traditional lube units mount this equipment on a chassis. Trailer-mounted lube equipment enables service fleets to significantly reduce costs by avoiding the expenses that come with having a separate lube truck, such as chassis maintenance, fuel, an extra driver, and insurance. It also means a significantly reduced initial investment.

The QT Lube Trailer can deliver several fluids to the job site, including new oil products, salvage and grease. The unit also features locking storage compartments and can carry items such as work lights or an air compressor. The Lube Trailer is self-powered, meaning it can work behind most service trucks or as a stand-alone unit on the job site, and it can be pulled by any truck — 1 ton or larger — with a simple ball or pintle hitch.
