It’s time to rethink mobile power, by Paul Smith, commercial manager at Winton

Sunday, 15th January 2017

For many fleet operators, having access to mobile power is essential for business operations. Mobile power is required for many tasks carried out on the road, including the operation of road drills, hand tools, submersible pumps and electrofusion equipment, and for supplying site lighting.

On-vehicle power systems can provide compressed air, electric and hydraulic power, and even high pressure water jetting, and can therefore … read more
