Now that I’ve found Plantman and they’re local which is a bonus, I won’t need to look elsewhere. They also have an extensive range of equipment that suits our requirements for servicing the mining industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Plantman to any of our clients. Well Done!!!

From the start working with Frank regarding setting up a different style of service body was more than helpful, and this enabled us to get a truck that meets our requirements. Pricing was good and there were no issues when we made changes when they were requested. The response was excellent, I have made multiple requests to have other things added and modified from learnings here on-site and these were done to a great standard. The delivery was good even due to the Covid restrictions. We were very happy with the result and will be recommending Plantman if requested and hopefully dealing with Plantman in the future when we upgrade trucks again. Thank you again for the work put into the truck and body.

The flatbed has been very well received across the MEM department. As expected it was delivered in a clean and ready-to-go condition as promised and all facets of the truck have been put to good use. Overall everyone is impressed with the truck and having it on-site has allowed for work to flow a lot smoother.

Fuel trailers are tank bodies used to transport large quantities of diesel, oil or fuel. Diesel fuel powers the heavy-duty vehicles, machinery and generators at remote mining sites, and fuel trailers are instrumental for transporting fuel to meet the urgent needs of the fleet. High amounts of fuel are used in operations at open mine sites and with the use of the right fuel storage trailers, refuelling time can be greatly reduced and operational efficiency therefore enhanced.
Fuel trailers are available in various models, capacities and sizes. The internal structure and construction depend on the requirements for pressure, insulation and non-insulation technology.
Trailers with multiple compartments can be used to transport different liquids simultaneously. This saves time during transport and fuel costs. In a large trunk trailer, fluctuations in the direction of fluid caused by the tank can cause the trailer to veer off course, and significant shifts in the centre of gravity can affect the axle load and stability of the truck and trailer. Multi-chamber trailers reduce axle changes and increase the stability of a trailer.
Fuel trailers are an integral part of any fleet. These fuel trailers provide convenient and flexible fuel management and storage systems at remote mining sites that do not have proximity to fuel or diesel stations. The fuel trailers must be reliable and effective in carrying fuel without the risk of any leakages. Also, their weight should be ideal, neither too heavy nor too light as it might affect the car haulier or the vehicle power source that moves the trailer from one place to another.
They have to be sturdy enough for long distances with minimal maintenance required so that the driver can focus more on safety rather than maintenance and upkeep of the trailers, as they may be transporting dangerous materials across unpredictable terrain.
Fuel trailers serve many purposes, from transporting fuel supplies to servicing earthmoving equipment on mine and construction sites.
