Reefer Sales and Service in Mississauga, Ont. and Atlantic Carrier in Moncton, N. B. are now distributing the Climacab electric APU which runs off four AGM batteries. The system is completely maintenance-free and requires no fuel while offering 12 hours of air-conditioning between charges, according to the manufacturer. The Climacab was developed by Glacier Bay. It offers 8,000 BTUs of cooling and comes with a Start Assist feature that can re-start the truck’s batteries if they should fail. The Climacab requires no internal ducting and is completely CARBcompliant. For more info, visit www.climacab.comor contact Reefer Sales and Service at 905- 795-0234 or Atlantic Carrier at 506- 388-6000.

Toronto-based manufacturer Riteway Technology says it has a cost-effective APU that delivers a quick payback. The Total Temperature Control (TTC) APU is available at a recommended price of $5,650, according to the company, which delivers a quicker payback than most other APUs. The company claims a payback can be realized in just 800 hours of use or four months, compared to a traditional APU payback of 24-36 months. The single-cylinder, direct-drive, air-cooled system consumes 0.12 gallons of fuel per hour, Riteway claims. For more information, visit www.ritewayapu.comor call Shane Perue at 416-637-5005.

Haldex has come out with rivetless front and rear covers for S-ABAstyle automatic brake adjusters. The new rivetless design will replace the previous front and rear covers that had a retaining rivet. The improved design instead uses an adhesive compound, according to Haldex. For more info, visit www.haldex.comor call Haldex at 800-267-9247.

Ridewell has introduced the RAR- 260 air-ride trailer suspension which it says strikes a balance between price and performance. It’s available in over-and underslung configurations with 25,000-and 30,000-lb. capacities. It features the Securelok pivot nuts to maintain pivot clamping force, the company says.
