Ag Service Equipment
We know Agriculture
Over the course of our nearly 30-year history in the truck equipment industry, some of the strongest customer relationships we've developed have been with Ag dealers throughout the Southeastern US. We understand that Ag equipment farm trucks are just as complex and need just as much service attention as any heavy construction equipment, and we offer countless customized solutions geared towards helping our Ag partners maximize their service opportunities and productivity. Whether you're on a construction site or a farm, field service provides great revenue opportunities, and we work with you to build the ideal trucks for the opportunities in your area. NFE is a one-stop-shop for all of your Ag equipment and farm service truck needs.
Smaller Farm Service Trucks
Offering the full line of IMT service bodies and cranes allows us to customize smaller Class V (or below) units to meet the needs of Ag dealers who might specialize more in smaller equipment. From smaller hydraulic cranes to electric cranes on lighter-duty bodies, we can customize a unit to fit the unique needs of your dealership. Of course if your needs call for larger trucks and IMT equipment, we've got you covered there, too!
Stellar Aluminum Service Bodies
Payload is always at a premium no matter what industry our trucks are servicing, and one way to increase yours is with a lighter body. We are pleased to now be able to offer aluminum crane bodies from Stellar Industries to our customers looking for bodies strong enough to handle powerful hydraulic cranes while minimizing additional weight at the same time. Stellar's TMax Aluminum line offers bodies capable of handling cranes from a 3200lb electric all the way up to their 30' 12000lb hydraulic crane.
Reading Service Bodies
NFE has represented Reading Truck Bodies since our doors opened in 1991, and we've always considered theirs to be the best light-duty utility bodies in the industry. More and more in recent years we have seen customers adding smaller trucks to their service fleets to handle all kinds of jobs that do not require larger bodies and cranes. Reading provides the ideal platform for such trucks, and NFE offers their full line, which we can customize to meet the specific needs of our customers. Reading bodies are offered in both steel and aluminum, and feature useful options like flip-top sides, rollout drawers, and even custom NFE additions like cab-guards, safety lighting, LineX, and workbench bumpers.
We love working with our customers to develop new concepts to help them take their business to the next level. Over the years, these projects have taken many shapes throughout many industries, and Ag is no exception. Our customers know that large farm equipment isn't the only type that needs service, and they see the revenue-producing opportunities that servicing smaller home equipment can bring. The unit pictured here was specifically designed for just that -- with custom CTech cabinetry for parts, hooks for belts, a drive-up rear door, and even a winch/hoist for pulling in and lifting up riding mowers, this "Ready to Mow" concept is ready for quick, onsite service of smaller machines.
EnPak for Ag
Miller's EnPak line has been a proven game-changer for our industry. As our Ag customers know as well as anyone, Tier 4 truck engines are simply no longer made to idle making PTO configurations problematic. The EnPak line exists to eliminate those problems. The EnPak A60 provides the power to run larger truck-mounted hydraulic equipment and provides a generator and a powerful 60cfm rotary screw air compressor as well. Ideally suited for smaller trucks, the versatile A30 system that offers a 30cfm screw compressor, battery charge/crank assist, a 6500w generator, welding capabilities, and the power to run smaller electric cranes. The EnPak A30 unit provides a lot of versatility for any application -- the Ready-to-Mow concept truck discussed above is powered by the A30, and by mounting it on a custom slide-out tray, servicing the unit is fast and easy.
Whether you're looking for hydraulic, underhood, or gas-drive, NFE has you covered when it comes to air compressors. We will work with you to find the right compressor solutions for your job and your specific truck. We also know that many of our customers have access to their own compressor lines, and we're happy to install customer-supplied units (like the Deere unit pictured here) on the trucks we build. We can install remote start options and in-compartment hose reels to keep your workers from having to climb into the truck bed every time they need to turn on their compressor, saving your company time on the job. We even offer partitions (pictured) to keep your compressor safe from sifting items in your load space.
Fuel & Lube Trailers for Agriculture
We're longtime fans of American Eagle products and their LubeMate line of skid products have long been popular with our customers. Recently, American Eagle has expanded the LubeMate line to include impressive fuel/lube/DEF trailers ideally suited for the Ag world. These modular, customizable. trailers offer a versatile, non-CDL options to customers who need to keep their field equipment (or that of their customers) fueled & lubed up on the job.
We recognize that for many of our customers, their fleet goes beyond crane trucks. We offer trucks, bodies, and equipment of all shapes and sizes, offering our customers a one-stop-shop for all of their fleet needs. These custom beds feature a hydraulic gate and a winch for loading, unloading, and transporting smaller equipment.
Custom Farm Service Trucks
NFE specializes in customized solutions for the most specific jobs our customers tackle, and farm service trucks are no different. If you have a unique application that requires a unique work truck-- like the well-service truck pictured here-- give us a call and we will be happy to discuss your needs and how we can build a truck to help.
Four years ago Hutson was a small, six-location John Deere dealership. We were experiencing issues with our crane body supplier for our service trucks. The customer service I was receiving lacked a lot; it would never fly with our customers. I ran across Nichols Fleet Equipment while searching for a new provider. My only reservation was [that] NFE is located in eastern Tennessee and we are in western Kentucky. After my first conversation with the NFE employees, I knew that distance was not a barrier. We are now fourteen locations across four states, a top-five revenue producer, and have the largest contiguous area of responsibility for John Deere. We feel we have grown with NFE. They have offered us customized solutions to improve our technician safety and productivity. NFE has rebuilt existing bodies for us when we were not ready to retire them. NFE is always available if we have questions or need parts, regardless of the brand of body. NFE was able to supply me a cab/chassis and crane body within a week of wrecking one. I had the pleasure of touring the NFE facility. Everyone there is very eager to help, and I know if I ever have a question I can call the folks at NFE.
Small Crane Solutions
Maxilift cranes offer versatile, powerful, and compact lifting solutions that can easily mount on trailers, flatbeds, or pickups, making them ideal for Ag work. These fully-hydraulic Italian cranes are extremely well-built, and enhance not only the productivity, but the safety of any job. The smallest of the family, the ANT50 (pictured) offers a full 8'1" of hydraulic reach and can lift 1100lbs (440lbs at full reach).
Transporting equipment is a big part of the job for many dealers, and rollback units provide the most efficient way to load, transport, and unload equipment. If rollbacks are a part of your fleet, we can help find the right unit for your needs.
NFE can design and provide customized fuel and lube skids to fit anywhere they're needed, from service trucks to pickup beds. We design kids off all kinds-- oil products, salvage, fuel, DEF, or any combination of the three. Our in-house CAD design can allow customers to visualize how their skid will look before production so they know exactly what they're getting before it shows up.
Custom Truck Flatbeds
NFE offers a wide range of flatbed bodies for all size trucks. Flatbeds can be customized with underbody boxes, goosenecks hitches, heavy-duty bumpers, and strobes/lightbars. NFE offers quality Freedom Truck Beds from Blue Ridge Manufacturing.
