Much like a house, the layout of your lube truck and reel cabinets can either hinder - or improve - your productivity. During our build process, we identify the quantity and types of lube products you need. Based on that assessment, we construct your lube truck with optimal functionality in mind.
QUESTIONS TO ASK
Often times, our customers are aware of what products they’ll need to service their equipment – oil weight, DEF or antifreeze, grease or no grease. But when it comes to determining how those lube products are dispersed and collected, we fully believe that the lube truck manufacturer should be the expert. After all, we build these all day long!
Some questions that go into our thought process when designing the reel cabinet:
WHAT MAKES TPL LUBE TRUCKS AND REEL CABINETS DIFFERENT?
Because we custom manufacture all of our lube trucks, lube skids, and lube trailers, making unique dimension or placement adjustments is much easier vs. trying to make another, standardized lube truck option work for you. We also have 30+ years of experience that support our setup decisions.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
It’s no secret that time is money – and the more time your lube truck technician spends reaching for, over, or around things can add up. The same time-saving mechanisms are used by major restaurant and manufacturing companies around the world; checking how many steps are between the coffee machine and the drive-thru window, or how many pillars employees must navigate around before reaching the next destination for a specific product conveyer belt. In our tenured opinion, mobile lube services should be no different.
Functionality considerations are also beneficial when it comes to employee satisfaction and health. Less straining and frustration equates to a lowered risk of workplace injury and higher rates of job satisfaction – a metric that has been proven to directly impact work productivity and performance. By purchasing a piece of mobile lube equipment that has these considerations intrinsically built-in, you already have an advantage that benefits your team and timelime.
