KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Eaton has produced a free tool to help fleets determine whether or not hybrid-electric power is a good fit for their vehicles and routes.
The one-page, double-sided document is available for download free of charge at www.roadranger.com.
“More and more of our potential hybrid customers had been asking us for a good resource to best determine the appropriateness of a hybrid system for their fleet,” said Kevin Snow, Eaton chief engineer, hybrid applications and integration. “With fuel costs once again soaring, the timing of the document’s release should be especially well-received. Our Roadranger field service representatives, of course, remain another valuable source for information.”
The document is called ‘Is hybrid power right for your vehicle, your fleet’ and it covers: appropriate applications; jobsite operation time; stop densities; vehicle speeds; driving techniques; warranty information and more, the company says.
Eaton has more than 5,500 hybrid systems in use today, which have racked up more than 200 million miles and reduced emissions by some 80,000 metric tonnes, the company claims.
