    Unfortunately I recently purchased full skids from another vendor recently but the pic of the perforated gas skid has me intrigued. I've seen some other centerline skids that have holes to "prevent suction" in mud - what is the purpose of the large perforated holes on your gas tank skid? Drainage to help prevent corrosion? Eliminate suction? To lighten the weight? Aesthetic design coice?

    Two main reasons to let dirt, mud, and water fall down as well as the weight.

    Thanks for the reply! That makes sense as long as the final design still provides adequate protection. I've read a lot about skids needing to be dropped and cleaned to reduce corrosion from mud buildup but not sure how often people do that once installed. Seems like a logical design choice

    Yeah, we didn't want that to happen to our customers. Taking a skid plate off and on is a lot of unnecessary work.
