​Freightliner Trucks featuring vocational, medium-duty and alternative-fuel solutions at 2018 Work Truck Show

Visitors to the Freightliner Trucks booth (#4659) at the 2018 Work Truck Show can explore a wide breadth of truck models, as well as powertrain and connectivity solutions that meet the needs of vocational applications during the exhibit running from March 7-9, 2018.

"All of our vocational and medium-duty products are designed for applications requiring reliable products," said Kelly Gedert, director of product marketing for Freightliner and Detroit Components. "Whether we're developing new powertrain technologies or working with bodybuilders to make the upfitting process as efficient as possible, our priority is to provide the right solutions for our customers' applications."

The Freightliner Trucks booth will feature several vocational, medium-duty and alternative-fuel solutions including:

In addition to truck models, also on display in the Freightliner booth will be the Detroit DD5, Detroit DD8 and Detroit DD13 engines. The DD8 was unveiled at last year's Work Truck Show and recently started vehicle production, and the DD5 engine - Detroit's first medium-duty offering - is chosen by one-third of customers when there is technical coverage for their application.

Detroit engines are built for power and efficiency. Along with ease of maintenance, they have the longest service intervals in their class. Included with the DD5, DD8 and DD13 engines is the Detroit Connect Virtual Technician remote diagnostics service. This feature allows fleet managers to make informed service decisions without compromising uptime.

When a contractor is looking to get the most out of their excavator they utilize a variety of attachments that can get more jobs done. What is often overlooked is how those attachments are coupled to the machine – and how a tiltrotator can not only allow that equipment to do more, but to do it faster, safer and with less labour.

Ground penetrating radar systems need tough tablets to endure harsh conditions

As a manufacturer of ground penetrating radar technology, GSSI is an organization that understands the rigour of field work, and their customers operate in environments that are as tough as it gets. GSSI's technology aids field work across industries, from construction sites to public utility work and even search and rescue missions following a natural disaster. Despite their reputation for industry leading software, they can't do it alone. GSSI relied on a custom controller that was hardened for field work. While it met the unique hardware requirements for their ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology, the controller couldn't keep up with the design cycle and the hardware too frequently became outdated. In a market that requires staying ahead of technological advancements, GSSI sought a new hardware partner to accompany their best-in-class software.
