TruckGen offers a new step box pan that can house a generator on Freightliner Classic XL tractors.
Although the current Freightliner factory-built step box pan is 11" high, the TruckGen version is built with enough depth to install its compact UCT1-3.5 generator. Once the gen-set is mounted in the pan, the original factory step box lid and foot step are reattached to the box, hiding the onboard generator.
The UCT1-3.5 is the centerpiece of the TruckGen “Total Truck System,” comprised of the 3,500-watt gen-set with its own remote radiator, separate electric air-conditioning/heating units, and an electric battery charger. The gen-set weighs 160 pounds, and the air-conditioner/heater is about 90 pounds. For more information, contact TruckGen, 1732 St Johns Bluff Rd, Jacksonville FL 32246.
