Finding the Sage Solution
BrandFX is the most trusted composite work body manufacturer in the United States and provides purpose-built solutions for five of the nation’s top six service fleets. When BrandFX’s President, Gary Heisterkamp received a request to outfit 20 vehicles with composite service bodies that include the ability to perform onsite oil-changes, he turned to Sage Oil Vac for a customized mobile lube system that can be configured to the exact specifications of his customer.
“A logging tradeshow is where I got my first chance to see a Sage mobile lube system in action,” Heisterkamp explained. “I was impressed with the technology and the speeds they are able to deliver fluid. So, when one of our large national customers asked for our help coming up with a mobile service solution at the NTEA Work Truck Show, I brought them by the Sage Oil Vac booth for an introduction where we learned about the customizable LubeBuilder system.”
Working with the people at Sage Oil Vac, the BrandFX team was able to select the number and sizes of tanks most appropriate for the work its customer would be doing. Based on the needs of the customer, they installed a four-tank system with a storage container for used filters. They recommended their customers install FEMCO drain plugs, which allows hoses to be directly hooked up to the drain pan to improve speed and reduce the chance of spilling fluids.
“The LubeBuilder system is totally customizable, so we could set up within the truck body in the ideal configuration,” Heisterkamp added. “We positioned the controls so they were convenient for the operator and the tanks were in a position to maximize cargo and storage space. We also included space to install a used filter receptacle.”
The LubeBuilder system was quick and easy to install, and a Sage Oil Vac technician travel to BrandFX’s Iowa upfit facilities to help with the process.
A happy customer
BrandFX’s customer can now provide mobile lubrication services to one of the largest fleets of work trucks in the country. And, according to Heisterkamp, his customer is so happy with the results, they already placed another order.
