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.

What’s the Difference between an OEM and an Aftermarket Heavy Duty Radiator?

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 10:08:11 AM America/Chicago

Quality is in the Eye of the Driver


When you hear the word aftermarket, your thoughts may be leaning toward believing it to be an inferior part. Although there are plenty of inferior parts to go around (some good, some not so much), you should be weary to keep from being bitten by them. Inferior is a relative term when talking about heavy duty truck parts.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 12:38:40 AM America/Chicago

Heavy Duty Radiators for a Heavy Duty Truck

This simple oval has been displayed proudly across the grill and along the side of every year model Peterbilt truck since it was first introduced in 1953.

THE HISTORY OF THE MIGHTY TRACTOR IN IOWA

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 12:37:54 AM America/Chicago

Radiator Pros Brings the History of Tractor Home Again

Charles City Iowa is the birth place of the tractor by two gentlemen named Charles Hart and Charles Parr. It’s unknown whether the city was named after the double Charles’ but if not, it certainly should have been in our opinion. Although there were earlier steam powered machines, it was in 1903 that Charles and Charles released the design of the first American made tractor which was built with a two-cylinder gas engine with a hit and miss firing cycle producing a horsepower of 30 at the belt with 18HP at the drawbar. This internal combustion enginetractor weighs in at about 14,000 pounds and continues to be displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History located in Washington DC as the oldest surviving tractor of its kind.
