For the past two years, Zeitner & Sons logged almost 1.5 million miles on five trucks equipped with Horton’s DM Advantage on/off fan drives. The trucks included four Kenworth T2000s and one T600 model—all with Cummins ISX engines.
Zeitner & Sons, a Midwest refrigerated truckload carrier, agreed to test the DM Advantage after having some issues with the previous on/off fan drive.
“We’ve used Horton products for the entire 30 years we’ve been in business, and the issue we experienced several years ago was the first significant one we’d had,” said Mel Zeitner, fleet manager with Zeitner & Sons. “We identified the problem and Horton provided us with rebuild kits. Later, Horton further improved the product—now called the DM Advantage—and asked us to test it. The fan drive performed perfectly in more than a million and a half accumulated miles on five trucks.”
Horton DM Advantage fan drives are spring-engaged and air-disengaged for maximum efficiency. The fan drives feature lighter weight and higher torque for turning larger fans. DM Advantage units are designed to keep engine coolant at optimum temperatures, improve engine performance, save fuel, and reduce operating noise.
