Driving in the oil patch can be very challenging for the best of truckers. Adverse weather conditions and tough terrain can break men and equipment. The gravel truck has multiple functions working in the oil and gas industry. Road building, stockpiling gravel and assorted projects. They are also used for transporting drilling rig contaminates to recycling facilities. Sometimes diesel fuel is used as a lubricant for the drilling rig. It is collected, mixed with sawdust enabling it to be hauled in gravel trucks.
Transporting contaminated material requires special government licensing in some circumstances. To haul contaminants, the gravel box will have special locks keeping the tail gate shut if regular locking system fails. Also automated load cover air tarps are used to keep any material from blowing off in transit.
