Understanding the misunderstood alternator

Most alternators today are more durable than ever. So why are so many alternators failing? Or, are they really failing?

Building a smarter alternator

In the past 15 or 20 years, as fleets began facing stricter legislative and power requirement changes in their trucks, the OEMs in turn began facing demands to produce higher-quality alternators that could meet these standards. “So, what they’ve demanded from us is higher efficiency and lower cost,” says Clive Harley, vice president of engineering

A reduction in gears: Inside electric truck transmissions

Rather than the typical 18-speed transmissions, electric trucks tend to use two-speed transmissions, with some using three or four. So why is that?

The lowdown on engine components

A growing trend when it comes to engine oil is that many fleets are employing extended oil drain intervals for their trucks. This can be a time- and cost-saving practice, but only if your trucks are in an application that supports extended oil drain intervals. If it does end up being a smart move to go with extended oil drain intervals, know that your filtration system can handle it.
