Mitchell 1, a provider of technical information for vehicle maintenance, service and repair, has announced that the Arkansas Trucking Association has selected the company’s Tractor-Trailer.net Web-based service and repair information database to be used in the service information station of the Technician Championship, to be held on Friday, June 23.
“We are using Tractor-Trailer.net to test the technicians’ ability to retrieve information,” says Claudio Garcia, maintenance trainer for Maverick Service Centers and coordinator of the service information station for the Arkansas Technician Championship. “Many technicians have hands-on skills, but now they need to know things like part number or torque readings, and the ability to easily find that information on a computer is vital. Tractor-Trailer.net makes the whole process very easy and straightforward.”
Mitchell 1, based in Poway, Calif., says Tractor-Trailer.net is the trucking industry’s first complete Web-based service and repair information source for all heavy-duty tractor, dry van and reefer makes dating back to 1990. Updated monthly, the product requires no software installation and comes equipped with full-color, fully searchable system wiring diagrams for more than 1,100 Class 7 and 8 tractors and more than 1,800 reefer and dry van trailers, according to the company.
