Up-N-Atom introduces a new Retriever truck bed option: a No Idle System to help heavy-equipment transporters meet government no-idle regulations and save money while making pickups and deliveries of rental equipment. With the option, Retriever can load and unload 30,000-pound payloads with the truck's engine off by using the truck's air system, not hydraulics, for truck-bed power. The No Idle System works in conjunction with the truck's air system. Once the compressor has filled the truck's tanks, it continues pumping until the 60-gallon No Idle System tank is filled to 120 psi.
According to the company, in rental equipment deliveries the No Idle System is capable of reducing idling time by as much as 95 percent and producing substantially lower emissions, extending engine life and maintenance intervals on the truck's 2008 emissions system, and generating significant fuel savings.
“The No Idle System extends Retriever's other benefits of using air — not hydraulics — for truck-bed power plus reduced maintenance costs, improved cold-weather operation and the user's environmentally green commitment,” says Joe Simons, president of Up-N-Atom.
An air-operated, curved and hinged design reduces deck weight, creating greater payload capacity. The Retriever's shallow loading angle — 10.8 degrees — allows equipment to be driven aboard while the curved shape eliminates breakover damage.
