COLD START PACKAGE
Espar Heater Systems’ Sure Start package includes the company’s Hydronic 5 Coolant Heater and Hot Foxes from Arctic Fox. Espar developed the package in response to concerns about the ability to start engines in cold weather, given the use of ultra-low-sulfur diesel and, in some cases, biodiesel. The new package heats the engine and fuel tanks, including the fuel being delivered to the engine and heater.

The Cobra-6 enables you to inspect and check, without disassembly, difficult-to-see components such as pistons, intake valves, fuel systems, radiators and evaporators. The ultra-slim borescope features an interchangeable blue-and-white-light LED flashlight. The blue light is for detecting fluorescent leaks and surface flaws, while the white light is for component inspection. The package includes fluorescence-enhancing glasses and fluorescent leak-detection dyes. Dye refills are sold separately.
The sidewall design of the Genesis tipping platform transfer trailer eliminates the need for a center bar or pipe to bridge the sidewalls or a midsection across the top. Without a crossbar in the way, trailers can be loaded faster, cleaner and more efficiently, with a more even load distribution. The tipper’s extruded sidewall panels, floor-to-wall junction and heavy-duty top rail add the extra strength needed to keep wall flexing to a minimum.
SIDE TURN LAMP
Grote’s surface-mount LED side turn lamp provides plenty of front light for the driver to see in the mirrors. The side turn design features two Lumileds Luxeon LEDs that, when combined with jeweled reflectors, are effective at placing light where needed. The inner lens array is designed to optimize output while eliminating the need for additional LEDs.
WATERPROOF MULTI-PURPOSE GREASE
Green Grease is a professional-grade, high-performance synthetic polymer developed for trucking applications, withstanding temperatures up to 500 degrees. It prevents rust and protects bearings, seals and open gears against wear. It is available in 14-oz. and 3-oz. tubes.
TIRE INFLATOR/DEFLATOR TOOL
Tire Service’s core retracting tool reduces inflation and deflation time by as much as 50 percent. The operator can extract the valve core into the body of the tool and hold it there during inflation and deflation.

MACK INTRODUCES CABOVER
The new TerraPro Cabover, an evolution of the Mack MR, is designed for refuse and construction applications, including concrete pumping. The standard engine is the 11-liter Mack MP7, in a range from 325 hp to 405 hp with torque ratings from 1,200 lb.-ft. to 1,560 lb.-ft. Also available is the 13-liter MP8, in a range from 415 hp to 485 hp with torque ratings from 1,540 lb.-ft. to 1,700 lb.-ft. Both engines feature single overhead cams, electronically controlled ultra-high-pressure fuel injection and one-piece steel pistons. Noise and vibration are minimized by the design of the engine mounts, cab bushings, rubber isolators and electronically controlled fan.
CABIN AIR FILTER
Luber-finer’s heavy-duty Cabin Air traps virtually all particles, such as bacteria, pollen, smog, dust and exhaust, that may enter the vehicle through the ventilation system. The high-performance filters remove 99.5 percent of allergen contaminants from outside air, and have electrostatically charged fibers that allow them to work at higher efficiency because they attract and hold contaminants.
Kenworth Truck Co. is now offering the Caterpillar C9 on the W900S mixer, T800 short hood and T800 front-engine power take-off configurations.

The Donaldson Pulse Cleaner is a self-contained system that dislodges ash and soot from diesel particulate filters, which capture the particles generated during the combustion cycle and continuously combust the soot, leaving behind ash. The average cleaning cycle is 15 minutes or less, depending on the level of contamination.
RigMaster has enhanced its auxiliary power unit with a microprocessor controller that features a large LCD display, one-touch stop/start and climate control, and single-tier access to all menu features.
