Product Spotlight: Sage Lube Trucks and Lube Truck Bodies
Sometimes the ideal equipment maintenance scenario doesn’t involve a centralized shop. In many cases, it’s best to do that work right on the jobsite. But it takes the right equipment. Sage Oil Vac lubes trucks and lube truck bodies help operators take care of that maintenance without pulling equipment from the job. Available in various truck weights, Sage lube truck bodies are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities. They feature Sage Oil Vac exclusive vacuum pressure systems, eliminating the need for high-maintenance diaphragm pumps to deliver oil and other fluids to equipment operators so they can get back to work quicker and more efficiently.
So, how do lube truck bodies help?
These features, on top of other common components that add operator ease and convenience, contribute to a more efficient jobsite. It minimizes the time required to perform routine maintenance and doing it on the jobsite instead of a shop or maintenance facility.
“Our lube trucks and lube bodies help jobsite managers and contractors get their maintenance work done quickly so they can get back to the job they’re out there to do,” said Sage Oil Vac CEO Aaron Sage. “Given we have a wide range of options, we think it’s important to make an informed decision so you’re striking the right balance and staying as productive as possible.”
Choose the right model
Selecting the right Sage lube truck or lube truck body starts with a look at your available workforce. Figure out what size of chassis and truck combination will best accommodate how you operate and service your customers. For smaller operators, those without commercial drivers’ licenses (CDLs) or who provide service to multiple locations at the same time, non-CDL lube trucks foot the bill. They’re smaller and can be mounted on a Dodge Ram 5500 or Ford F-550 truck. The total weight ranges from 16,001 to 19,500 pounds. Non-CDL lube trucks — like the Sage 55AB-6200 — have a tank capacity of up to 180 gallons. They are ideal for servicing equipment like dozers, excavators and rental generators.
If you service a larger fleet on a smaller number of job sites, a Class 7 or Class 8 truck or body provides the fluid capacity (up to 2,000 gallons) to perform oil and fluid changes on multiple machines in a single trip. On top of the Sage Oil Vac exclusive vacuum pressure system, these larger trucks feature high-capacity tanks, hoses, compressors and generators for delivering oil and fluids. And attributes like driver-side bulk fill stations, remote control capabilities and LED fluid sensors make operation more efficient and convenient.
Keep equipment running
All told, these features and components help maintenance providers deliver service to the jobsite. This can be done regardless of the size or number of machines being serviced. Sage Oil Vac lube truck bodies are vital to efficiently maintain equipment so jobsite operations can continue with minimal interruption.
“We consider our lube trucks and lube trucks bodies part of a larger system in which we can help contractors and equipment operators do a good job of maintaining their equipment then get back to work with minimal work interruption,” Sage said. “Our trucks and lube bodies were designed to keep machines running as efficiently as possible, and we’re going to keep finding new ways to continue to make that happen.”
