APU extends engine maintenance intervals
Oct 1, 2002 12:00 PM
TruckGen has designed a small, light auxiliary power unit (APU). This anti-idle system offers many of the same features found in the firm's Total Truck System. The APU extends truck engine maintenance intervals, while averaging only 1/10 gallon of diesel fuel per hour itself.
It is used in conjunction with factory underbunk heater/air-conditioner units and will provide 12,000 Btu of air conditioning and up to 20,000 Btu of heat. It is also compatible with inverters for operating onboard electrical appliances.
The APU, with its patent-pending load management design, combines a Kubota diesel engine, compressor, 120-amp alternator, and in-cab remote start switch. The complete unit weighs 185 pounds and measures 30" long × 18" wide × 16" high. It will fit in many step locations or toolboxes, or any of the standard enclosures built by TruckGen.
