Driver and Fleet Feedback
“We’ve been using the Idle Free Series 5000 since Spring and are very satisfied. It works exactly like Phillips & Temro said it would. Our drivers using the Series 5000 are pleased with how quickly it cools. In addition to higher cooling output, the start stop feature is handy when the APU batteries need to be charged. And because it mounts behind the cab, it frees up rail space.”
