Parker RunWise via Big Truck Rental
First Hybrid Technology Widely Available in the Rental Markets
Parker Hannifin (Booth 1151) is promoting an arrangement with Tampa-based Big Truck Rental allowing customers to test its fuel-saving RunWise hydraulic hybrid driveline in an Autocar refuse vehicle before committing to purchase.
“RunWise will be the first hybrid technology widely available in the rental markets,” Parker says.
“Our partnership with Big Truck Rental gives municipalities and fleet managers the opportunity to test and experience the significant savings and environmental benefits of the RunWise-equipped trucks and learn how their fleets can benefit from hybrid technology,” said Parker Hannifin hybrid drive systems GM Shane Terblanche.
The Autocar E3 equipped with RunWise technology is available through Big Truck Rental to municipalities and waste management companies on a rent-to-own basis. “RunWise global commercial truck customers have already surpassed one million miles of operation with reduced fuel consumption by up to 50% and reduced maintenance costs,” Parker says.
“Our customers have been asking for a technology that can reduce operating costs while providing an environmental benefit,” Big Truck Rental president and CEO Scott Dols says in the Parker announcement. “Parker RunWise is the premier cost-reducing technology on the commercial market and we are excited to address our customers’ needs.”
