Guaranteed Financing on APU System for Trucking Owner Operators


Dynasys APUWith the increasing anti-idling laws, the professional truck driver faces serious health concerns due to the lack of comfort controls.  Unable to idle their trucks for heat or cooling usage during the federally mandated ten hour break, due to these laws or company policies, the driver is forced to rest in severe heat or cold, depending on the situation.  The best solution to this problem is to install an APU unit to the rig, providing the alternative power source needed to rest in comfort, while saving on fuel costs and reducing carbon emissions.

The problem for many truck owner operators is coming up with the capital needed for the Auxiliary Power Unit, which can run as high as $12,000 to $15,000 and more.  In the United States, 97% of trucking companies operate 20 trucks or less, and 90% operate six trucks or less. Smaller motor carriers such as these, who further operate on a small percentage profit scale, also find it financially difficult to locate the extra cash to equip their trucks with an APU system.  A small trucking company with only five trucks would be looking at an added expense of $50,000 or higher.  With the current state of the economy, finding the capital for such an expense can prove to be extremely difficult.

    I’m an o/op, I have a tri-pak APU, now, but its getting old, do your APUs, include a power inverter? If so, what wattage, my tri-pak came with a 2500watt inverter

    I asked the CEO of Hodyon and here is his reply:

    Our APU has a 6000 watt generator that produces 110V AC; the tripac has no generator and therefore had to invert off the alternator,

    So with our unit, you automatically get 110v to plug in things like TV, microwaves, etc.

    We will give the driver 2 outlets in the truck (each outlet is double plug); and each outlet is 15 amps (just like in a house).

    How much does the unit weigh?

    I bought my dynasis apu for peace of mind. Like the design with stand alone radiator and generator. It has been a total nightmare since the day I signed the paperwork. More time out of route and down for repairs than any savings. Feel like I pay monthly for someone to rob me. Near 100 degrees in FL today. APU not putting out cold air, truck running 24/7. Had new computer put in, lasted less than 24 hours.

What do you have to say about this?
