APU manufacturer Idle Free Systems announced Aug. 25 it had signed a deal with Maine-based dealer O’Connor Motor Company, which has locations in Portland, Maine, and Augusta, Maine.
O’Connor sells Hino, Isuzu, Mack, Volvo and Western Star. Per the Idle Free Systems deal, the two locations will now sell Idle Free complete Electric Auxiliary Power Units and its Heat System units.
The dealerships will be both sales and service providers for Idle Free Systems.
Idle Free offers APUs that can be powered three ways: An independent battery bank with four AGM batteries, Shorepower connection or Reefer Link, a proprietary Idle Free source that allows it to be powered by a reefer unit.
