“We now offer a full range of solutions, whether converting existing trucks or purchasing new ones,” EcoDual CEO Mike Donoughe said in a release.

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.
