XK-150 Power Units

XK-150 power units use a variable displacement piston-type hydraulic pump to allow any swivel speed desired. Caterpillar engines are standard.

Hydraulic-powered triple hose reel is standard with 100 foot hydraulic hoses, and reel will accept 200 feet if required. Our design use standard swivel joints for high pressure axle bearings, available economically anywhere in the world. For operator safety, our hydraulic control valve is located well away from the reel. We proudly call the reel drive our ugly gear drive, so named because the slow moving open gears are flame cut.


Trailer Power Units

Our trailer power units are designed with the highest degree of roadworthiness. We use the widest tandem axles with oversize weight ratings. Electric brakes are fitted on both axles, and the standard breakaway system locks the brakes should the trailer separate from the truck. For best road balance, all equipment is arranged on the trailer centerline. Rugged fender tanks are arranged on each side for best balance and to maximize service access on the trailer deck.   Gooseneck or bumper hitches are optional, and spare tire is included.

Skid Power Units

Rugged oilfield skids are designed for truck winching and are fully floored with diamond plate. Oil spill containment rail is fully welded all around. Heavy-duty dual tank design uses minimum floor space, and all equipment is arranged to allow easiest access for service. Heavy bumpers are standard on both ends. Offshore skids are built with overhead crane lifting frames, seal welding throughout, and special salt air paint systems.
