Adomani

Adomani provides patented all-electric or hybrid conversions to fleets, with public fleet financing options available. Adomani takes out the gas or diesel engine block and puts in an electric engine, while all other parts remain standard. A battery pack is then placed in the bed of the truck, with either 30-mile or 60-mile range packs available. For the hybrid system, only the driveshaft is switched out to an electric system. The systems can be installed in less than one day.

Agile Access Control is offering fleet managers the new FleetCommander 4.9 software, which focuses on three aspects to managing a motorpool. First, the system provides straightforward scheduling. Secondly, it offers several ways that a vehicle can be checked out, whether it's a people-based solution or the keys can be kept in a secure key box. The key box acts as a kiosk for users to login to check out a vehicle. Finally, the new solution from FleetCommander allows users to scan their badge to unlock and lock the vehicle. Reports are also available so a fleet can track its vehicle utilization, hour-by-hour.

Heil Environmental

Heil’s DuraPack 5000 features the only robotically welded and fully welded interlaced subframe in a refuse collection truck. In the company's strive for maximum performance, Heil’s engineers decided to incorporate a “high cylinder mount into a compact design with a short overhang to maximize forward loading” of the body and payload. It is also designed to last much longer since it has no rollers, slides, or slide shoes that could wear out. Heil focuses on having engineers that make sure every design makes the system easier to maintain.

Property Room

PropertyRoom.com’s new Yellow Iron auction program for heavy-duty equipment works to make the process of re-deployment easier and more successful with higher returns for its users. Property Room does a lot of the work for you, according to the company. All Property Room asks for are photos (up to 25) and an equipment condition description. Then, the website produces “specialized marketing pieces” that it distributes to possible buyers. Once the auction is complete and funds are collected, your agency will negotiate title, and registration transfer and vehicle delivery.
