Finding the right lube skid model for a work truck can be a struggle — especially when you have specific needs. You’re often forced to settle for small tank capacities that limit your capabilities, subpar quality and mismatched fluid exchange components. Sage has the solution with our revolutionary LubeBuilder™ system (we’re serious — we are the only OEM doing this in the marketspace), featuring our patented no-pump lube exchange technology.
CUSTOMIZABLE. SCALABLE. VERSATILE.
As a completely customizable, à la carte kit for virtually any dedicated lube vehicle, the LubeBuilder system cuts costs by allowing you to select only the things you really want and need for a more economic upfit. Choose everything from the number of tanks to tank storage capacities, placement of tanks, and more. This product works great for crane trucks, mechanics bodies, van bodies, enclosed bodies or even stationary shop setups.
IS THE LUBEBUILDER SYSTEM RIGHT FOR ME?
| ||REGULAR LUBE SKID||LUBEBUILDER SYSTEM
|Do you want customization?||Regular lube skids have limited customization. Sage (and competitors) have several lube skid models and dimensions available, but these products are harder to customize.||The sky is the limit with a LubeBuilder system. You decide every element involved, from tanks and reels to the overall layout preferences.
|Do you need to be able to move your system?||Easy — all you need is a forklift.||Transfer options are limited. Once a LubeBuilder kit is installed, it is likely staying with the vehicle.
|Does the footprint matter?||Most lube skids are bolted within an unchanging static frame (e.g., 4 ft. x 6 ft.).||With LubeBuilder’s customizable footprint, the components of the upfit can be placed throughout the platform in ideal positions. Put tanks in one corner of the truck, and the reels and control panels at ground level off the side of a truck, for example, for easy access. It’s all up to you.
|Do you need a shorter lead time?||Regular lube skids require component assembly and welding, increasing the lead time by several weeks.||Because the system does not come pre-assembled, getting you the components, parts and tools shortens the lead time. Estimated 2-4 weeks for arrival after order design and completion.
