Tubes & Hoses: Making the Connection in Heavy Duty Truck Cooling

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 4:43:35 PM America/Chicago

The heating and cooling systems in a Volvo, Kenworth, and Peterbilt truck are very complex. Just ask any repair person, or in many cases, the driver and they’ll tell you that there’s a lot of trouble-shooting that goes on prior to finding the reason for failures. Of course, the moment the drips or puddles are sighted under the truck, we immediately envision the high cost of repairs. But, don’t despair. There’s some variance among the opinion of the experts, but we’re finding that around 80% of the source of the leaks are discovered in the tubes and hoses. Happily, these are the simpler and less costly resolutions.

The Right Heavy Duty Compressor at Just the Right Time

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 8:51:52 AM America/Chicago

Every once in a while you might see a vintage sign in the window of a very well established business saying “Air Conditioned”. Sure we chuckle at those now, but back when they were being created and posted, air conditioning might have been the difference between having lunch at one restaurant or another. These days, the sweet relief of cool air is far more taken for granted that it’ll be there when we need it. When you’re confined to the cab of the Kenworth, Peterbilt, Mack, or Freightliner there are only two options if the AC goes out. Two-fifty AC (2 windows and 50 mph) or see Radiator Pros about a new AC Compressor.

Dynamite in a Small Package: Fork Lifts & Skidsteers

Friday, April 24, 2015 1:33:42 PM America/Chicago

Heavy duty is sometimes truly in the eye of the beholder. An excavator is sure to be considered heavy duty equipment by anyone and is used for the really big jobs. However, sometimes you need equipment that is capable of getting around in smaller places where the path is narrow or the overhead lower. That’s when we rely on dynamite in small packages in the form of fork lifts, loaders and skidsteers.

The Kenworth...Bus?

Monday, April 20, 2015 2:02:30 PM America/Chicago

The business of freight and public transportation has always been closely related; from the view of the manufacturers, that is. The Freightliner over the road semi-truck and the Thomas bus has an association similarly to the way that International Navistar is related to the Blue Bird bus. But, did you know that Kenworth also played a huge role in the production of public transit and school buses beginning in 1926? It was a stepping stone for the company and they were rather well known for this innovation in moving the masses in safety and comfort. The line changed hands thirty years later however, when Kenworth turned their focus to their well-known, class 8 semi-truck so it’s unlikely that you’ve seen one of their buses running down the road recently.

Think Spring with A/C Condensers

Friday, April 10, 2015 3:54:55 PM America/Chicago

A Polar Vortex? This has been the newest word trend as so much of the USA and Canada experiences low temperatures and high snow falls that we’ve not seen for the last couple winter seasons. However, meteorologists assure us that the term Polar Vortex has been around for as long as people have been studying and forecasting weather. Still, it does seem to be an odd time to discuss A/C Condensers when so much of North America will have mountains of snow still melting in May and June. But rest assured, this is not the time to ignore the A/C components on your Peterbilt, Freightliner, International, and other heavy duty over the road trucks.

KISS Your Twin Turbo Goodbye

Friday, January 9, 2015 9:57:34 AM America/Chicago

Let us help you Keep it Simple


Life tends to be complicated; sometimes people just want to make it that way! In business (and in life) we should remember the acronym KISS - meaning, keep it simple stupid. Not a very nice catch phrase, of course, and somewhat of an in your face statement. However, simplifying and reducing the maintenance of your heavy duty truck cooling system is one of the areas where taking the more straight forward approach can payoff in both money and time.

Happy Holidays from Radiator Pros!

Friday, December 19, 2014 9:16:20 AM America/Chicago

Silver and Gold Heavy Duty Radiators


Okay, so they’re actually made of brass, copper, steel, and/or aluminum, but that doesn’t mean that some of you don’t have a shiny, new, high quality radiator or charge air cooler on your Christmas list for Santa! Let’s face it, the Holiday Season is normally such a busy time of year that heavy duty truck maintenance slowly moves to the bottom of our long list of things to do. You may not be the person in charge of the cookie baking or decking the halls, yet the holidays have a way of sidetracking us more than any other time of the year.

Farmer’s Field of Dreams with Agricultural Power Modules

Friday, December 12, 2014 10:07:13 AM America/Chicago

Check Out Our New Line of Agricultural Power Modules


Farming is a time honored tradition and way of life that is usually handed down from generation to generation. As a matter of fact, family farms make up 98% of all farms in the United States according to the US Department of Agriculture. Being raised knowing the long days and hardships that farming can bring requires a person with great stamina and character. Surely farmers know that it could be much easier to take a job and punch a clock for someone else rather than be subject to Mothers Nature’s whims and seven day work weeks, yet they do it every day.

The Turbo Charger – Boosting Power and Safety

Friday, December 5, 2014 10:14:45 AM America/Chicago

Having a High Quality Turbo Charger is Essential


The reliability of the turbo charger has come a long way, even as recently as the last ten years. One regional driver of over 20 years shared a story of a day, about that long ago, that his turbo blew while running down the highway in his company Volvo truck. With an instant 50% power loss and seeing the black smoke covering all three lanes of traffic, he was forced to limp the truck forward to the next off-ramp due to road construction eliminating the emergency lane. It was only about 15 minutes from the time of the blow until he was safely pulled over, but knowing that the smoke was creating a visibility hazard for the vehicles behind him – this seemed an eternity.
