--Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduced EnPak™ Mechanic Series—the world's only truck-integrated, diesel engine-driven air compressor, generator and hydraulic pump—at the National Truck Equipment Association's (NTEA) 2009 Work Truck Show in Chicago. EnPak's 27-HP Kubota diesel engine eliminates the need for a PTO and integrates seamlessly into its electrical and fuel systems, allowing mechanics to run all their tools with the truck turned off. This lowers fuel costs up to 30 percent, reduces truck engine hours up to 60 percent, lowers truck noise by as much as 10 dB and substantially reduces exhaust fumes in the work area.
