Transporting Small Propane Tanks

We know exactly what you’re looking for if you’re looking for trucks that can transport small propane tanks, whether the propane is for home heating, commercial heating or cooking purposes. You need something that prioritizes safety and efficiency. That is exactly what our crane trucks do.

Our crane truck, which is also sometimes known as a boom truck and bottle body, is manufactured with a specially designed mobile crane that can pick up and move your small propane tanks wherever they need to be placed. The trucks themselves are built to be heavy duty and are made out of aluminum extrusions with a variety of different toolbox options with aluminum extruded doors.

Our Crane Truck Options

There are many options to choose from when it comes to customizing your crane truck so that it meets your specific needs. You’ll be able to choose from several different crane size options, each of which is designed from heavy-duty aluminum extrusions that can be further customized with different cabinet sizes, length options, and crane variations.

You can also customize your crane trucks by including different sized cabinets as well as by adding a number of attachments, such as crane attachments and lift gates.The following are some of the features that all of our crane trucks will have:

  • An interlocking configuration
  • A non-skid floor
  • Complete aluminum extruded construction
  • Multiple load tie-down areas
  • LED lighting installed in a waterproof junction box

Last but not least, you can purchase a crane truck from Amthor International as a complete installation on a chassis, or you can choose to have your next crane truck body shipped to you instead as a kit.

What are the characteristics of each type of truck

We have a reputation as being one of the leading tanker truck manufacturers here at Amthor International because of the many different type of quality tanker trucks that we have to offer as well as because of our innovative design and customization options. This is especially true when it comes to our line of crane trucks, vacuum trucks and tanker trailers. The following are some of the characteristics that make our crane trucks, vacuum trucks and tanker trucks so popular:

Our Crane Trucks

If you need to transport small propane tanks, then our mobile crane trucks are the perfect choice. They are designed with a special flat bed body and a crane that makes it easy to pick up vessels and place them exactly where they need to go. We build our crane trucks with an extra heavy-duty body made out of aluminum extrusions. You can purchase our mobile cranes as a complete installation on a chassis or you can have the body shipped to you in kit form.

Our Vacuum Trucks

Our vacuum trucks can be used for numerous applications, including for sucking up water, different types of fuel, grease traps from restaurants and septic systems, just to name a few. We offer our clients two types of basic vacuum trucks to choose from – our Matador non code vacuum tank and our Matador ASME/DOT code vacuum tank. Each one of our vacuum tanks is equipped with a highly effective pumping system and comes with the ability to pressure off what’s in the vessel.

Our Tanker Trailers

We offer several types of tanker trailers that can be used in the refined fuel, vacuum, potable water and non-potable water industries upwards of 10,000 gallons. We designed our tanker trailers for the specific purpose of helping our clients to save time and money since they allow for the transportation of a large amount of liquid at one time instead of having to make multiple trips with smaller vessels.

These are just some of the characteristics of our line of crane trucks, vacuum trucks and tanker trailers available here at Amthor International.

What makes Amthor’s offering unique?

We are quite proud of our reputation as the leading manufacturer of tanker trucks in the United States here at Amthor International. One of the reasons that we have earned this reputation is because of the quality of our tanker trucks, the variety of tanker trucks that we offer and our huge number of customization options. All of these things make our tanker trucks particularly unique when compared to our competition.

Our crane trucks, vacuum trucks and tanker trailers in particular are very popular with clients. The following are just some of the few things that make these types of tanker trucks so unique here at Amthor International:

Our Crane Trucks

Our mobile crane trucks are unique because of the fact that they were designed specifically for the transportation of smaller propane tanks. Basically, the flat bed body and the mobile crane combination make it easy to pick up, move and put down vessels exactly where they need to go.

Our Vacuum Trucks

Our vacuum trucks, which are available with both code and non-code tanks, are extremely popular due to one of the most unique features that we offer – our Amthor CLAW. The CLAW is a series of hydraulic arms built on the tank that open and close the vacuum tank’s rear doors.

The use of this feature eliminates the need for wing nuts at the top and sides of the tank. The CLAW allows for a tighter seal and ensures the latch won’t loosen if pressure is lost. The driver can also operate the CLAW with a lever, thereby eliminating the need to climb high in the air to tighten the rear door. Basically, our unique CLAW feature improves both functionality and safety.

Our Tanker Trailers

So what exactly makes our tanker trailers so unique? Besides the huge number of customization options that allow you to build a tanker trailer that fits the exact needs of your business, we focused on building a tanker trailer that will save you time and money. This is because our tanks can be built to hold up to 10,000 gallons and serve the potable water, non-potable water or refined fuel and vacuum industries.

These are just some of the features that make our tanker trailers, vacuum trucks and mobile crane trucks unique. For more information about our tanker trucks or the different features and customization options that are available, be sure to contact us at Amthor International today.

Amthor’s Propane Trucks Are Designed For Safety

Here at Amthor International, we’ve earned a reputation as being a leader of innovation within the tanker truck industry. We are constantly improving on our tanker truck designs and features to the benefit of our customers. Take for example our propane trucks. We offer our customers the ability to fully customize our propane trucks in order to meet the unique needs of their business. Some of these customization options, such as our partial rear canopies, can improve the operation and safety of your propane truck as well.

Our Partial Rear Canopy Propane Clipper Tank Trucks

On our Propane Clipper tank model we have a partial rear canopy installed on the back of the tank which covers and protects all the equipment in the rear and allows you to not have your back to oncoming traffic.

The following are a couple of the benefits that you can enjoy when you purchase an Amthor Propane Clipper:

  • Improve the protection of your truck – A partial canopy will help to protect all of your fittings and equipment, thereby preventing the elements from wearing them down as well as protecting them from any other type of damage that might occur. This can help reduce the need for costly repairs over the propane truck’s lifetime.
  • Working in front of the rear bumper – With this design you are working in front of the rear bumper not behind it so it will protect you from oncoming traffic.
  • Inverted Hose Reel – With an inverted hose reel you are pulling your hose out on an angle and therefore causing less stress on your back then from a standard deck mounted reel where you have to pull it straight out. Also pulls out a lot easier as well.

These are a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy with a an Amthor Propane Clipper. For information about our propane trucks – or our tanker trucks in general – be sure to contact us at Amthor International.

Vacuum Trucks – Our Unique Safety Features

One of the reasons that our tanker trucks at Amthor International have always been in such high demand is due to the state of the art designs and features that our trucks boast. We put a lot of effort into making sure our tanker trucks are the very best in the industry, which is why we keep up with advancing technology and constantly innovating. Take for example the CLAW hydraulic rear opening system outfitted on our vacuum trucks.

CLAW Hydraulic Rear Opening System

We first introduced our CLAW hydraulic rear opening system a few years ago, at the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo in Indianapolis, IN. The CLAW is basically a series of hydraulic arms that open and close the rear door of our vacuum trucks. This feature allowed us to eliminate the use of wing nuts on the top of and the sides.

The CLAW hydraulic rear opening system is a huge benefit to vacuum truck drivers due to the fact that they will no longer be required to climb ten feet into the air in order to tighten down the rear door as they have to do with other typical vacuum trucks. Instead, all your driver will have to do is pull a lever. The lever will cause the CLAW’s arms to extend, reach out and either release the door open or pull the door in. This provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Improve Convenience – It won’t take your drivers nearly as long to open and shut the rear door of the vacuum truck.
  • Improve Safety – Your drivers won’t risk their safety climbing up the back of the truck since that’s no longer required.
  • Improve Function – The CLAW will ensure a much tighter seal than any driver or operator could provide manually. The CLAW will lock past center and the latch will not be loosened even if the cylinder fails to operate or pressure is lost.
  • Save Money – Adding a CLAW hydraulic rear opening system may cost a bit more than using traditional wing nut design, but the costs are minimal. Not to mention that you’ll save money on unnecessary repair work caused by incorrect operation.

The CLAW hydraulic rear opening system has been available on our code and non-code vacuum trucks since mid-first quarter of 2014. For more information about our CLAW hydraulic rear opening system or our tanker trucks, be sure to contact us at Amthor International.

Fuel Tanks – Amthor’s Emphasis on Safety

If you’re looking for new fuel tankers to add to your fleet, you won’t find better options anywhere else than at Amthor International. Not only do we offer the highest quality fuel tankers in the country, we allow for full customization in order to make sure that our fuel tankers meet your company’s specific needs. Additionally, you’ll find that our fuel tankers boast state of the art features not found anywhere else, such as our air operated railings.

Our Air Operated Railings

Here at Amthor International, we keep ourselves up to date with all the latest technology and fuel tanker features and designs. We do this in order to make sure that we offer the types of features that you want for your fuel tankers. We also do this so that we can constantly innovate our fuel tanker designs and features. Why are we so focused on innovation? Because we understand that innovation is what leads to improvements in function, cost and even safety. Case in point – our air operated railings.

One of our most popular fuel tank features of the last couple of years is our air operated aluminum railing system. There’s always been a bit of a safety risk for drivers of fuel tankers, especially when it came to walking on top of the tank itself. The air operated railing system will help to improve the safety of your drivers when they need to get up onto the tank. This is because your drivers will be forced to raise and lower the railings before they climb onto the top of or off of the tank.

The way our air operated railing system works is that a panel is installed in the middle of the ladder used to climb on top of the tank. When the panel is opened, the air switch will automatically raise the railings. In order to climb up the ladder, the driver will have to open the panel. When climbing down the ladder, the driver will have to close it to get down, which in turn will cause the railings to come back down.

If you want to reduce the safety risk of your drivers, then you should consider adding our air operated aluminum railing system when customizing your Amthor International fuel tankers. For more information about the features available on our fuel tankers and tanker trucks, be sure to contact us at Amthor International.
