Thunder Creek is introducing a new truck upfit for the Isuzu NRR truck chassis. This includes both the popular multi-tank fuel NO HAZMAT upfit, as well as the service and lube outfit.

Thunder Creek Equipment has announced the expansion of its truck upfit line of fuel and service solutions with the addition of the Class 5 Isuzu NRR truck chassis.

This expansion includes both the No HAZMAT Fuel & Service Upfit (MTU) model, as well as the Service & Lube Truck Upfit (SLU) for daily fluids and preventive maintenance.

"The addition of the Isuzu NRR truck chassis to the Thunder Creek family of upfits is engineered to meet customer demand around this very popular commercial truck platform, and to further improve maneuverability and visibility — both on- and off-road," said Seth Schreur, vice president of engineering, Thunder Creek Equipment.

"The success of these truck upfits is built on the ability to deliver fluids to job sites and customers in a truck that costs significantly less to own and operate than larger, higher-volume trucks. The Isuzu NRR chassis does that and more with best-in-class maneuverability, a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission, and the proven performance of a turbocharged Isuzu diesel engine."

The Isuzu NRR truck chassis features a GVWR of 19,500 lbs. and is built sturdy to handle bulk fluid delivery to sites ranging from paved commercial and institutional sites to off-road construction sites. The primary benefits of the Thunder Creek upfit platforms compared to larger, higher-volume bulk tanker trucks include lower total cost of ownership, the ability to get in and out of more compact/crowded sites, less disturbance and lower ground pressure, and the ability to deliver critical fluids to each site without requiring a HAZMAT endorsement or a CDL.

It's ultimately more practical for business owners and fleet managers to own and operate — helping them take greater control of their fluid delivery schedules, equipment uptime and customer satisfaction while not limiting the labor pool that can drive each truck.

The No HAZMAT and no CDL design developed by Thunder Creek has transformed various industries, including construction, equipment rental, dealer service departments, home heating oil delivery, disaster relief operations and widespread fuel distribution networks. Thunder Creek accomplishes this through the innovative design and engineering of each truck to keep bulk fluid quantities below mandated levels while delivering an operator interface that makes fueling and daily fluid delivery easy, the manufacturer said.

The No HAZMAT Fuel & Service Upfit (MTU) features a total capacity of 920 ga. of diesel (eight 15-gal. tanks) along with options for DEF, grease and power systems. The Service & Lube Truck Upfit (SLU) features 690 gal. of service fluids configured in 25-, 55- and 115-gal. tanks and can include fresh oil, reclaimed oil, coolant, reclaimed coolant and diesel. Select configurations also can be equipped with DEF and grease.

Each Thunder Creek upfit is manufactured in Pella, Iowa, and is distributed through a network of dealers throughout the United States.
