A new line of TruckGen ultra-compact diesel generator sets helps owners and operators reduce fuel and operating costs while providing driver comfort. Now, the company has engineered its 3.5-kw gen-set to fit into most Kenworth stepboxes, or any of TruckGen's custom-built diamondplate aluminum boxes.

With more than enough power for a 10,000-Btu air-conditioner and other onboard luxuries, the UCT1-3.5 allows drivers to shut off their engines and still remain cool in summer and warm in winter.

At its normal operating speed, this unit consumes 1/10 to 2/10 gallon of diesel fuel per hour. The Goodyear helical-cut drive system allows the engine to operate at a noise and vibration level of 2800 rpm, while the generator spins at 3600 rpm.

Measuring 28" × 16" × 17" and weighing 160 pounds without the box, the 3.5-kw model can be installed easily, since the only connections are battery cables, fuel lines, and electrical cord.

A 3.5 kW model is available to fit into Peterbilt stepboxes and those of other rigs. TruckGen also manufactures 5.5-kw gen-sets in its ultra-compact line and offers optional 40-amp battery chargers.
