Mountain West Truck Center, the largest Volvo and Mack truck dealer in the intermountain west, has signed an agreement to sell, install and service Idle Free electric APUs. They are based in Salt Lake City, Utah and have another parts and service location in St. George.
An auxiliary power unit (APU) is an aftermarket system that can be added to a Class 8 over-the-road truck to help the driver reduce discretionary idling.
The Idle Free electric APU differs from other idle-elimination systems because it is the most complete system available. It meets all driver needs — heat, air conditioning and electricity to run a TV and computer — without jeopardizing the productivity and longevity of the truck. The Idle Free electric APU is the only complete electric APU on the market and therefore will generate the fastest ROI of any system because of the significant fuel savings.
Gary Pedersen, parts manager for Mountain West Truck Center says that signing on to represent the Idle Free electric APU helps them serve their customers better.
“We pride ourselves on being able to provide customers superior solutions to effectively run their business and make money,” he said. “Adding the Idle Free electric APU to our line of commercial and work truck offerings will help us help our customers stay productive and profitable.”
