Horton has released a new two-speed fan drive for medium-duty trucks, buses, severe service vehicles, rear engine cement mixers and other on- and off-highway equipment with little to no ram air. The Arctis line provides the highest available torque from Horton: 2,700 in.-lbs. (305 N-m). Under most operating conditions, the fan drive is powered by eddy current, turning the fan at a lower speed to reduce operating noise and increase horsepower for auxiliary systems.
Continental's wide-base single HTL1 trailer tire has become the fourth tire in the Continental lineup to be verified by SmartWay as a low-rolling resistance tire that can reduce NOx emissions and produce a fuel savings of 3% or greater. The tire features a 13/32 in. tread depth and a pyramid stone bumper/ejection system to reduce stone retention and casing penetrations. The HTL1 is for use on long-haul trailers.
