"We expect Maxwell's Engine Start Module line to help significantly reduce our industry's engine cranking challenges, and we look forward to working together to address other energy obstacles facing this market," he says.

Bruce Purkey, president of Purkey's Fleet Electric, says that part of this problem is the reduction of idle time and the increasing loads from driver comfort requirements. "The biggest thing you can do in this age of idle policies that make you a greener fleet by saving fuel is to manage the electrical loads," he says For the fleets, he sells an inverter kit that only lets the driver have two hours of operation out of 10 hours. And owner-operators know how expensive a call-out for a jumpstart can be. So this should not be a problem for you.

Running the batteries down is also preventable if the truck is spec'ed with a low-voltage disconnect switch. This senses the battery voltage and takes loads offline when cranking voltage approaches a critical level. Charging issues may be less of a problem, but with an alternator change-out you don't necessarily have to replace the batteries, says Purkey.
