‘A Full Range of Solutions,’ Both New and Used, EcoDual Says
EcoDual disclosed a partnership with Hunter Truck Sales, a Peterbilt dealer with 15 locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia. Hunter is to provide custom-configured Peterbilt 388 and 389 gliders with EcoDual’s MAX/SRTM dual fuel system allowing blended natural gas-diesel operation.
“We now offer a full range of solutions, whether converting existing trucks or purchasing new ones,” EcoDual CEO Mike Donoughe said in a release.
Hunter customers, president Jeff Hunter said in the announcement, will get “a real competitive advantage.”
25% ‘Average’ Fuel Savings
The Hunter EcoDual gliders will be available with remanufactured 2004-2009 Cummins ISX 15L engines across the full range of power and torque configurations, EcoDual said. The MAX/SRTM gear will be installed by Hunter and included in the standard purchase agreement whether leased, financed or purchased outright.
“A glider,” EcoDual explains, “is essentially a new truck with an older model year engine and transmission both completely rebuilt to new engine standards and warranties.” Fill torque and power and the 15-liter Cummins ISX is retained, with “clean burning natural gas technology to reduce fuel costs by an average of 25%.”
The trucks will combine the EcoDual MAX/SRTM product “with all of the reliability of a new Peterbilt,” Donoughe said.
