Hurricane season is upon us and the NOAA is predicting an above average Atlantic season, with 13 to 19 named storms. Premier Truck Rental is always here to help you plan, prepare, react and recover.
If a hurricane hits, Fat Trucks are the answer.
Start to prepare for storm season with these amphibious vehicles. Not only are they great for storm recovery, but they can climb over debris and can operate in water.
On average, it takes 14 months for full recovery after a tropical storm hits, with remodeling efforts peaking around 3 months after the storm ends.
When you add Fat Trucks to your fleet, you can reduce response time for storm recovery efforts by entering into the action head-on. Climb over debris and kickstart clean-up with these units.
Any Season, Any Terrain, Any Condition.
- Stuck in mud? No problem.
- Road filled with debris from the storm? Climb over it.
- Need to cross flooded streets? Fat Trucks will get you to the other side.
- Have to transport materials from one location to another? Fat Truck tires will inflate and deflate to offer maximum traction, assisting you however you need it, regardless of your surroundings.
Tropical storms can be dangerous and destructive. Fat Trucks are the prime solution to storm recovery, helping you conquer whatever comes your way.
ANY TERRAIN, ANY TIME
Some call it an inspection trolly. Others call it an inspection buggy. A few even call it a lineman limo. Sometimes, it’s even referred to as an amphibious transporter. But us? We call it a Fat Truck.
Off-road projects are no longer an issue when you have a Fat Truck in your fleet. These units, created by Zeal Motor, are completely amphibious and great for transporting people, tools, and other materials for your remote projects.
Although Fat Trucks have many uses, these trucks are industrial, off-road utility terrain vehicles specifically designed for transmission and power line inspections, pipeline valve inspections, line construction, right-of-way inspections, and transporting a team or materials over difficult terrains during any season.
When we think about Fat Trucks, all that comes to mind is that it’s an all-terrain vehicle that can do it all.
WHY FAT TRUCKS ARE UNIQUE
Having joystick steering, automatic transmission, and automatic brakes when not in motion, these trucks are safe, versatile, and great for every line of work.
Fat Trucks have unique tires, inflating and deflating based on the terrain that you’re tackling. Because of this, swimming through water, climbing over debris, or crawling through mud is no longer a problem. Fat Trucks are ROPS certified, EPA compliant, and designed per OSHA, ASME, ANSI, ISO, and SAE.
Our Fat Truck rentals have the option to add on a Fat Truck trailer, allowing you to haul, tow, and move even more equipment across worksites. These all-terrain vehicles have optional winches and hitches to carry your load. Also, these amphibious transporters make great crew haulers, having room to carry up to 8 passengers safely at one time.
WHAT MAKES FAT TRUCKS DIFFERENT THAN SHERPS?
There are a few key differences between Fat Trucks and Sherps when it comes to off-road utility vehicles: directional control, tires, and ROPS.
- Directional Control – These two units have very different steering. For Fat Trucks, you have a joystick steering option in between the two individuals in the front seat, allowing either to control the vehicle. Sherps have separate directional controls for the driver-side operator only.
- Tires – While both units have tires that inflate and deflate with the type of terrain you’re driving on, Fat Truck operations can control the airflow of the tires with a single button, while Sherp operators have to use a manual switch to move gas in and out of tires.
- ROPS – ROPS is crucial for all off-road units. Fat Trucks are ISO certified with ROPS protection and also provide seat belts for all passengers. Sherp has bars for ROPS attached to the frame.
TAKE ON STORMS HEAD-ON
Fat Trucks are ideal for storm and hurricane recovery efforts because of their ability to climb over anything and wade in the water. When it’s hurricane season, respond and assess damage faster than ever with these all-terrain vehicles. The Fat Truck is able to climb inclines up to 35-degrees (70%), has 67 horsepower, and can travel up to 20 miles per hour on land.
Conquer any terrain with a Fat Truck. This 8-person crew cab is joystick steered and is built for all types of weather and land. Stuck in the mud? No problem. With a single button press, the tires will deflate to offer maximum traction. When floating in the water, the tires inflate to maximum pressure to allow the tire treads to double as paddles.
NEW – THE FAT TRUCK PICKUP
Similar in usage to the Fat Truck 2.8c, the Fat Truck 2.8P Pickup Model is the first-ever fully amphibious pickup truck, having a full open bed to seat 6 passengers, hold tools and equipment, and more. Plus, these units can be custom outfitted with additional upfits like a high-speed capstan, vegetation control spraying unit, water tank, and a small service crane for equipment and material recovery post-storms.
