Trucks, Facilities & Equipment


Pickup trucks are used to move time sensitive small shipments.

Small stakebeds are great at moving pallets and small machinery. The side access makes loading and unloading easy.

Large stakebeds are great for 6 or 12 packs of cylinders, medium machinery, and pipe up to 24' long.

Bobtails are enclosed medium duty trucks. Bobtails carry shipments that are weather sensitive.

Minifloats are designed to haul equipment and 40' pipe that does not require a tractor due to weight.

Boxvan tractor trailers are great for hauling pallets or other modular freight. The enclosed trailer protects the cargo from the weather.

Flatbed tractor trailers transport all types of oilfield equipment, machinery, and other shipments that must be accessed from the side.

Dropdeck tractors are specialized equipment that are great for oversize and top heavy shipments.

Stretch float tractors are specialized equipment that can transport extended shipments such as over length pipe or beams.

Curtain side tractors offer side access to loading and unloading while still offering protection from the weather.

Liquid Cylinder / Cylinder Dollies and Pipe Racks

Cargo does not stop at the receiving dock. Many shipments need to be moved to end users, inside buildings, through warehouses, and into process areas. Cannonball's assortment of transport equipment can help when a fork lift is unavailable or not an option.

Pipe Rack

Pipe racks enable smaller trucks carry pipe up to 24' long that is light weight. Instead of being forced to use a large stakebed on a piece of 20' long pipe, a pickup with a pipe rack delivers a significant cost savings.

Headache Rack

The headache rack against the rear window provides driver safety from shifting loads and a solid structure to which freight (especially compressed gas cylinders) can be secured.
