We are the trucking professionals of the north, leading the way with our high safety standards and reliability.
Here is a brief overview of our fleet of trucking units that are here to serve across Canada.
Oilfield Picker Cranes
- 45 Ton
- 35 Ton
- 50 Ton
Our picker trucks are the best in the industry-leading the way in capacity and payload capabilities.
50 Ton Cranes
These pickers will haul 10,000 lbs more payload than any smaller pipe truck. They are able to legally and safely load and haul 11,000 lbs of 8 x 40 sheets of rig matting. Equipment that used to be riddled with safety concerns, we are now picking with ease, ensuring secure and reliable hauling.
The 45-ton picker possesses a 96′ horizontal reach and a 106′ vertical reach while picking 90,000 lbs at 8.5′ from the center of rotation.
The 50-ton picker has a 110′ horizontal reach and a 121′ vertical reach and is the largest picker in the oilfield. It picks 103,000 lbs at 8.5′ from the center of rotation.
Cranes and Picker Trucks are the Heavyweights
In oilfield drilling, there’s plenty of heavy lifting and this requires dependable cranes, picker trucks, and other equipment that can move, lift and lower loads efficiently. The cranes are mounted on heavy-duty trucks that can move from over 10,000 lbs. of material to as much as 100,000 lbs. from the center of rotation. Their huge reach ensures safe and reliable handling of the heavy and cumbersome materials used in the oil drilling operation.
Wirelining in the Oilfield
We use our cranes to perform wire lining jobs, a major part of an oilfield drilling process. Wirelining is a type of cabling technology used to lower equipment or measuring instruments into a well when intervention is needed, or when the operator must evaluate the reservoir. The cable used in the wireline is equipped with devices that measure radiation, porosity, lithology, oil-water contacts, sound waves, nuclear magnetic resonance, cement bond, casing depth correlation, and other characteristics to indicate the condition of the well.
Because the wireline cable depends on gravity, electrical tools known as tractors are used to push the cable through the hole, especially when the well is horizontal or does not drop straight down. The cable is wound around the spool on the surface or on a portable spool at the back of a wireline picker truck. A winch on the truck turns the spool, lowering or raising the cable into or out of the well.
Due to the extreme weather conditions that often exist in the Canadian oilfield, our heavy cranes and picker trucks are specially-designed and equipped to operate flawlessly under varying temperatures. They are equipped with sophisticated electronics to keep the crane operator constantly informed about lifting conditions so adjustments can be made immediately.
Oilfield Bed Trucks
- Flat Beds
- Texas Beds
- 45,000 lbs
All of our bed trucks have been dramatically reinforced to take triple the payload of standard Texas beds.
Flat Bed Truck Fleet
Our Texas bed trucks have the latest technology and options available, truly the best in the oilfield industry. All of these trucks are built on Kenworth chassis.
The beds have been engineered to load 45,000 lbs, which is triple the payload of standard texas beds.
All of our fleets go through a rigorous maintenance program to ensure that it always remains at peak performance.
Texas Bed Hauling
A bed truck, of which a Texas bed truck is a specific type, is defined as a truck tractor equipped with a bed for carrying cargo and a winch, located behind the cab, which is used for self-loading. The winch is not required but may be installed on the truck. The Texas bed truck is a flatbed truck where the 5th wheel is recessed. The term may refer to a truck or truck tractor depending upon whether the Texas bed truck is pulling a semi-trailer. Under Canadian laws, a Texas bed truck must have a width of 2.6 meters.
If the Texas bed truck has no trailer, it is treated as a truck and does not have to comply with wheelbase requirements under Canadian law. If it is towing a semi-trailer, the Texas bed truck is considered a truck tractor and must observe the wheelbase limitations of the Canadian Commercial Transport Regulations. A long truck tractor has a limit of 6.2 meters but may be issued an oversize permit up to an overall length of 23 meters as long as the wheelbase of the semi-trailer is reduced accordingly.
The Texas bed truck is used primarily to load and transport equipment to and from an oil drilling site. The truck must be tough in order to handle the rugged terrain of an oilfield and must be designed to handle heavy loads. It is equipped with a camera and controls that allow the driver to manage all the tasks from the cab. The truck also has safety features like headache racks to protect the driver during emergency situations.
The winch forms an important part of the Texas bed truck and, sometimes, more than one winch is installed. It must be capable of lifting and loading heavy loads safely and efficiently. The Texas bed truck gives the standard oilfield bed truck added capabilities to make oilfield hauling more efficient.
- Tulsa Winch
Consistently offering the highest quality equipment and making sure the job is done right.
All of our tractors are top-of-the-line Kenworth trucks. We use Tulsa winches with remote controls to help with both safety and efficiency for loading and offloading trucks.
These also enable safe and efficient winch procedures while double sucking loads on. Our winch tractors, just like all of our units are rigged with the best equipment and specifications to house our quality operators.
Winch Tractor Oilfield Hauling
A winch tractor is a tractor equipped with one or more winches and handles a variety of hauling jobs in an oilfield. It has a fifth wheel which can be used with oilfield trailers. Equipment and materials need to be continually transferred from one drilling site to another or from one part of a site to another. For these tasks, the winch tractor is ideal because of its versatility in transporting different types of materials.
In the exploration and drilling part of oilfield operation, a winch tractor is needed every 18 – 35 days to move rig equipment from site to site. The winch tractor will transport housing skid units, tubular, loaders, tank pumps, and many more. In the completion and production side of oilfield operation, a winch tractor is needed every 4 – 6 days. The winch tractor during this time will move mud pumps, base beams, catwalks, forklifts, 400 bbl tanks, pipe racks, tubing, and other materials.
Like other types of oilfield trucks, the winch tractor needs to be ruggedly constructed of aluminum or steel in order to cope with the oilfield terrain. The winch tractor itself must be powerful enough to haul anything from jeeps and boosters to highboys, lowboys, and even a 40-wheeler. Some winch tractors are customized to meet the special needs of a drilling operation. Customized front bumpers, stationary or fold-down grill guards, full-width steel decking, half-or full-fenders, and rear rollers are some of the modifications done on a winch tractor.
