CNH Parts & Service, the product support business of agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Global, has announced a new supplier agreement with LDJ Mfg. Inc. of Pella, IA, to offer its Thunder Creek Equipment line of fuel and service trailers through Case Construction Equipment, Case IH, New Holland, New Holland Construction and Kobelco equipment dealerships in the U.S.
According to Michael Pirkl, marketing manager for CNH Parts & Service, the new line of service trailers is an excellent fit for the company's construction and agricultural equipment customers, especially now that its Tier IV engines in the “100 horsepower and over category” require diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF, to meet emission standards.
"These products are ideal for customers who want the rugged dependability of a service trailer, combined with the convenience of bulk fuel/lube and DEF delivery system—in a single mobile platform," notes Pirkl. "Increasingly, our customers need to deliver DEF and fuel to their machines in the field. These utility trailers from Thunder Creek Equipment are a perfect solution, making clean technology from CNH convenient."
The new trailers come in a variety of configurations and DEF delivery options, and are shipped to the customer's nearest participating equipment dealership, directly from the supplier, Thunder Creek Equipment.
