AST Skid Mounted Big Rigs
Skid mounted big rigs are a great option for professional drywall texture contractors. Contractors choose skid mounted equipment when they want their machine mounted in a box truck or on a flatbed truck. Mounting in a box truck can be beneficial if you work in a cold environment where an enclosed truck can keep the texture tank warm during cold months.
Skid units also provide better protection from the elements and trucks offer more storage options for things like ladders, tools, and bags or boxes of mud. Some contractors take advantage of the extra room in the truck to mount shelving, hooks, or bins which can add a lot of value.
Advantages of a Split Skid
AST skid mounted machines come one two separate skids: one for the power pack and one for the tank. This configuration has a lot of advantages. The power pack is separated from the mixing tank allowing the two to be located on opposite sides of a bulk head or separating wall. You can even mount the power pack outside of the enclosed area on the box truck, reducing noise in the box and completely separating the power pack from the tank. This separation keeps the engine and compressor from the dust of the mixing compartment. A clean engine and compressor means less maintenance effort and lower cost!
Installation is a snap. Simply forklift the rig into your box truck or trailer and secure with the bolt down pads making sure they are mounted to structural members. Be sure to run your exhaust outside of the enclosed area. Skid mounted machines come with an installation kit that has everything you need for an install including hose racks, exhaust pipe and hardware.
