Published on 28 November 2022

When it comes to choosing which hydraulic oil tanks are best for your recovery vehicles, the options can appear overwhelming. Here at PCM Transport & Handling, we have a fantastic team with a wealth of knowledge, dedicated to assisting our customers so they can choose the right products for their needs.

Choosing A Hydraulic Oil Tank For Recovery Vehicle 

At PCM Transport & Handling, we are experts in supplying commercial hydraulic equipment including hydraulic oil tanks, combi tanks, fuel tanks, and steel tanks since 1970. All of the products we have on offer have endured rigorous testing to ensure they are of the highest quality. This allows us to consistently offer the most competitive prices within the industry, without compromising on your safety.

The oil tanks we supply assist with preventing your hydraulic oil from overheating using cheat dissipation, as well as improving the quality of your oil by capturing contaminants within a return line filtration system. Our tanks are fitted with filler breathers to allow air to enter and leave the tank as the oil level varies. Consequently, dust and particles in the air entering the tank are filtered out at the breather.

You can rest assured that you are guaranteed to find the right hydraulic oil tank at PCM Transport & Handling for your recovery vehicles from our extensive range. We hold tanks from 30l to 300l in both steel and aluminium, even offering a premium slimline range for vehicles needing to save space.

Steel Tanks To Consider

We carry steel tanks that are ideal for recovery vehicles, with the capacity to hold 30l to 80l of oil all of which have their own unique features for you to consider. Our steel tank range includes: Regular hydraulic oil tanks which are fitted with sight level gauges, filler breathers, and return filter assys. Under-body tanks that have the addition of welded supports for chassis fitting. We also hold aluminium side tanks which come equipped with bracket or rubber straps and are lightweight yet durable.

All of our steel tanks are stored in our centrally located warehouse in Northampton and we promise immediate dispatch on all orders big and small.
