New Heat-Intensive ‘Green' Engines Spur Changes in Heavy Duty Vehicle Lifts, Says Stertil Koni

According to a new industry overview from Stertil-Koni, the leader in heavy duty vehicle lifting systems, the increased heat generated by the growing use of electric-hybrid and compressed natural gas (CNG) engines in commercial vehicles is leading to a transformational shift in heavy duty lifting. The stakes are high and operating costs for transits, municipalities and fleets could move even higher. Here is what’s at play: The new greener engines typically run up to 50% hotter than conventional engines; and, while that in itself is not a problem, when you combine those searing temperatures with the typical road grime that accumulates on the undercarriages of these “green” commercial vehicles, engine life can be unnecessarily and dramatically cut short.
