WHY CHOOSE GREEN APU
OVER the competition?
The Most Versatile, Convenient, Durable and Lowest Cost to Own Auxiliary Power Unit for Semi Trucks on the Market!
Maintain Cab Comfort - Any auxiliary power unit can heat and cool the cabin and sleeper. But our APU does it better. The actual temperature is set and monitored using a controller conveniently mounted at bunk level. The auxiliary power unit automatically switches between cooling and heating, no waking up to switch the thermostat. Imagine enjoying your off-hours with the type of climate control found in luxury cars!
Battery Charger - The truck’s batteries drop in capacity and power quickly, even if they are relatively new. Most drivers begin to worry that the batteries will fail to crank the engine on days with falling temperatures. Our APU automatically starts and charges them to maintain the optimum voltage to compensate for this problem actively. This way, you can drive a truck with reliable batteries regardless of the weather or age! What if you forget to turn battery monitoring on and you return to a truck with dead batteries? HAVE NO FEAR! Fortunately, our APU can start using very little battery power. If there is not enough charge in the truck battery, our unit can be jumped off with a jump box or a passenger car. Once the APU is fired up, it can charge the mostly drained truck batteries up to the necessary cranking power in as little as 20 minutes, preventing costly service calls.
Engine Preheat - The truck’s diesel engine is hard to crank in cold temperatures. Our auxiliary power units for semi-trucks counteract the cold weather problems. Green APUs automatically start and warm the truck’s main engine if the coolant drops below 32F. This process ensures that the truck starts quickly, even after a few days in frigid weather.
Conserve Your DPF - All diesel truck models 2007 and newer are equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This system can clog and shut down the main engine. Additionally, some truck manufacturers will void your tractor’s warranty if the idle time exceeds about 15%. DPF repairs cost anywhere from $800 for a regeneration service to over $6,000 for a replacement job. Our auxiliary power unit avoids this problem because it eliminates the need for the main engine idle.
GENERAL ADVANTAGES OF USING AUXILIARY POWER UNITS - Ever since the strict enforcement of the US’s idling restrictions, many in the transportation industry have paid attention and equipped their semi-trucks with APUs. It is not just that; the advantages of getting one also attract more truckers to buy it. Auxiliary power units for semi-trucks are a great way to save money in the long run. The main engine is not worn out when using an APU, your DPF filter does not get clogged, and your truck will have a better performance on a per-hour basis too. The auxiliary power unit in semi-trucks also reduces the truck hours used, which will help prevent your warranty from running out as soon.
DURABILITY - With the 3-cylinder Kubota engine our APU will typically outlive a company's trade cycle so some companies move their Green APU to their new trucks. Green APU comes with lifetime 24/7 tech support and a 2-year 3000-hour warranty.
LOWEST COST TO OWN - Green APU was developed and designed by a trucking company that got tired of unreliable & costly to maintain or repair APUs. With the 3-cylinder Kubota engine vs our competitors' 2-cylinder, our unit runs quieter and with less vibration. BUT THE BEST PART IS...Replacement parts can be found at your local auto parts store. It is also easy to get your Green APU serviced with hundreds of authorized locations nationwide including most Pilot & Flying J Truck Stops.
