Cooling System Preparations for Winter – Tech Tip Tuesday

One of the most important tasks that should completed before the cold of the winter sets in is to ensure that the cooling system in your vehicle is properly protected from the harmful weather conditions.

The coolant mixture used to defend against the cold should be a priority for all who want to keep their vehicles in good condition throughout the winter.

The American Trucking Association

The American Trucking Association’s Technology and Maintenance Council provides a checklist for all truck owners to help them practice safe habits when it comes to caring for their trucks throughout the cold season. This Recommended Practice states many different regulations concerning what types of coolant mixtures are best-suited for specific types of trucks, as well as the dangers of mixing more than one type of coolant.

Concerns and Cautions

One of the biggest and simplest mistakes that a truck owner can make during the winter months is to incorrectly mix the coolant used to protect the cooling system of the truck. Purchasing more than one brand of mixture can be costly because, if coolant is combined with a different brand, the engine may not function at its full capacity. A couple easy ways for a truck owner to make this mistake are if they use two different mixtures because they are constantly topping-off their engine, or if there is a leak in the system and they are being cautious and adding more coolant unnecessarily.

Keeping tabs on the types of coolant used in your trucks is a priority to ensure maximum productivity from your vehicles. Because there are some coolants that are compatible with one another, mixing can sometimes not produce negative results. However, as coolant mixture producers move farther away from […]

Hino Commercial Trucks 155 Model Delivers Vocational Abilities

Great Article about the Hino 155 From the Work Truck Online Website

Hino Commercial Trucks making an impact on vocational and fleet truck industry

The Hino 155 offers some excellent medium duty truck options for landscapers, construction companies and contractors, electricians, plumbers, meat and produce companies and several other markets

Earlier in 2015, during the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Hino Trucks added the 155 model cab-over engine (COE) truck to its product lineup.

The Class 4 truck features a GVWR of 14,500 pounds and is powered by Hino’s J05E-TP engine rated at 210 hp. Hino will also offer a double cab version of the Class 4, the 155-DC model, which seats up to seven when a larger crew is needed.

“We are very excited about the addition of the 155 and 155-DC to our model lineup. We will now be able to better serve the needs of our customers with a wider range of product offerings,” said Glenn Ellis, VP marketing, dealer operations and product planning for Hino Trucks.

Delivering Vocational Abilities
Since its launch, the 155 has excelled in the light delivery segment, both in refrigerated and dry van applications.

“It is also an ideal application fit in the landscaping industry. From a stake-body application for delivering trees to a jobsite to a spray rig application for lawn fertilization, the maneuverability of the 155 makes it a great fit in this industry where the ability to move in and out of tight spaces is essential,” Ellis said.

The all-new Hino Class 4 COE model 155 was designed specifically for the North American market, and is available now.

“We are now delivering. We are very encouraged about the potential of the 155 in the U.S. market as it has exceeded sales expectations thus […]
