TAMPA, Fla. — SmartTruck has unveiled a new low-cost version of its trailer undertray system. The UT-1 model was unveiled at the Technology & Maintenance Council meetings here, providing fleets with a lower-cost, smaller version of its CARB-approved fuel-saving device.

SmartTruck says it has already started production and delivery of its new UT-1 system, which also consists of fewer parts.

“The UT-1 System builds on SmartTruck’s growing history of performance and reliability to provide fleets a rugged, durable, CARB solution now at a low cost with less than one hour of installation time,” said Mitch Greenberg, president of SmartTruck. “The UT-1 System is becoming a very popular choice with many fleets looking for this type of aerodynamic solution.”

SmartTruck says its UT-1 model delivers 5.5% fuel savings at highway speeds. IT features a two-component design and can be installed by one person in less than an hour, the company claims. The system improves airflow underneath the trailer and also cools temperature-sensitive tires and brakes. The UT-1 also provides significant ground clearance to avoid yard and road obstacles.

“The new system uses the same aerodynamic design approach as our UT-6 System – by using the airflow around the trailer to reduce the high-drag, low-pressure wake behind the trailer,” said Mike Henderson, CEO and chief designer, SmartTruck. “The UT-1 System can be easily upgraded to the UT-6 System by adding a single component, and both systems improve tire and brake cooling.”   

The system is distributed in Canada by Northern Aerodynamics Solutions. For more info, visit www.SmartTruckSystems.com.
