Bed and Boom Design
The TX-1 comes standard with an aluminum bed to resist the rust that affects its steel-bedded counterparts. High-quality composite decking provides an easy-to-maintain no-skid surface for your hauling needs. To meet the hauling demands of high-volume operations, the TX-1 has a bed big enough to accommodate two 1,000-gallon tanks with independent tie downs and all eight legs resting securely on the bed surface.
Fisk manufactures the TX-1 standard with an 082-3 HIAB boom. Although it closes into a small footprint, the HIAB has extended reach to allow you to place tanks precisely. This boom’s compactness and lighter weight provide more room for your payload to maximize your profit. Don’t let its small size fool you — this powerful boom can set 500-gallon tanks at 30 feet or place a 1,000-gallon tank out to 21 feet.
Safety and Security
Rest assured that your freight will stay in its place with the E-Track tie-down system attached to the upright railings. E-Track is a leader in cargo security, and the provided straps support applicable weight limits. Fisk also includes nine 5,000-pound D-ring tie-downs spaced perfectly for 500- and 1,000-gallon tank sizes.
Hauling propane requires careful risk management. The open-top design of the TX-1 ensures adequate ventilation. You’ll also find folding D.O.T. placards on each of the four sides to keep you compliant with regulations and prevent costly fines. The Thieman 2,000-pound fold-under lift gate makes loading cargo safer and easier. Your back will also appreciate the ladder and stairs that prevent injury risk from jumping in and out of the truck bed.
Fisk offers multiple options for you to personalize your propane knuckle boom trucks. Available choices include:
- Custom bumpers: Advertise your business as you roll by adding your name, logo and even backlighting.
- Helpful tools: Prevent additional trips by installing air compressors, vices or pumps right into your storage compartments.
- Extra safety components: Add a backup camera with 360-degree views or a specialty rack to keep safety cones handy.
- Flex riser boxes: Prevent risers from taking up valuable cargo space with this smart storage solution.
