Aluminum Flat Deck Trailer Customization
A customer came in and instead of buying a big stainless steel tank trailer decided to have us mount these two 3,250 gallon tanks on his aluminum flat deck trailers he purchased. These trailers haul lumber when not hauling fertilizer so the tank frames had to be removable. Custom hold down clamps were fabricated with multiple mounting locations so the tanks can be moved if the weight is not positioned properly. Sight tubes were installed for clear view of how much product is left in the tank. Banjo valves were mounted on both sides of the tank so that it can be loaded/unloaded from either side. Two 3” poly Banjo transfer pumps were mounted to 6.5 hp Honda engines. Custom hose hangers were made for the 45’ of 3” fill hoses, they were cut and bent out of single pieces of 10ga mild steel. All the work was done in house here in the fabrication shop at Ag Enterprise Supply, Inc. Banjo camlock caps and plugs were modified to secure the fill hoses to the trailer. Another nicely engineered and executed project goes out of the shop doors once again.
