"Go Anywhere" Field Servicing Center
"It gives you more capacity, and greater safety, than fuel tanks mounted in a pickup," says the manufacturer of the new Gwinco Field Service Center.
The Service Center is a two-wheeled trailer that carries tools, parts, grease, oil and fuel right to the field for "go anywhere" field servicing.
Two 185-gal. baffled fuel tanks and a 23 cu. ft. storage area are provided. The tanks have a crossover connector with shut-off valve.
A portable welder can be mounted on the Service Center for emergency repairs and a fire extinguisher (type A,B,C) is standard.
Rectangular steel tubing (2 in. by 5 in.) provides a sturdy frame for the Service Center. Most of the rest of the cart, including the fuel tanks, is made of 14 ga. steel. A screw-type jack is mounted on the tongue, which is a ball hitch type. Two 12-ply tires on a 6,000 lb. capacity axle carry the cart.
For road transport, there are side, tail, directional and brake lights. Surge brakes take most of the wear and tear off the towing vehicle.
Fuel tanks and toolbox are removable to provide a handy 60 in. wide trailer. "It's big enough to carry one or two snowmobiles," notes Dale Gwin, manufacturer.
equipment includes a transfer pump and filler hose, a rechargeable battery to
operate the pump and a fuel meter.
