RFMET Series

The RFMET series chassis is a mid-engine tractor with a single or two-man in-line cab, designed to accommodate a front elevating service platform. Developed for customers requiring tractor-trailer type equipment, with the need for larger uploads of fuel but designed especially for the Aircraft Refueling market. The chassis has many of the same features and components of our RFRD chassis. We work closely with the body builder to accommodate the liquid fifth wheel and the pumping system options.
