Buggy refuels remote telephone masts


Merlin Power Management has simplified refuelling telecom mast generators situated in inaccessible locations with a specially commissioned refuelling buggy – a John Deere Gator 6x4 with low ground pressure tyres.

Fitted with a specially built welded aluminium fuel container carrying 450 litres of fuel, pump, hose and spill kit; it is able to travel, fully laden, across terrain unreachable by 4x4 vehicles without disturbing the land.

The fuel container is replenished by a mother vehicle, which tows the buggy from location to location. The system is currently supporting major networks such as T-Mobile, Orange and BT’s Airwave network.
