Maradyne High Performance Fans

Maradyne High Performance Fans offers The Heat 5000 Series universal heaters, designed with durability, and high performance in mind. Ideal for any heavy-duty vehicle not equipped with heating or defrost capabilities, The Heat 5000 Series features a compact design and out-of-sight mounting inside the cab.

Maradyne's The Heat 5000 Series is made with a strong 0.22 gauge black-finish steel casing, a long-life motor and a durable tube/fin core design. Available in two voltage outputs, the 24VDC model is a solid fit for such heavy-duty applications as farm machinery, construction equipment, marine and military vehicles, buses, RVs, and other specialty applications, according to the company.

The company added that it designs only the highest-quality components into its fan assemblies, ensuring all motors are designed for long life no matter how demanding  the environment.  That level of workmanship is showcased in The Heat 5000 Series design, which offers three speeds supported by a large coil for maximum air flow and measures only 7 3/8-in. wide by 7 7/16-in. deep by 7 1/16-in. high.  

The Heat 5000 Series heaters come complete with mounting studs and rear hose connections as well as mounting brackets for the fan control switch.  Optional accessories include a Defrost Kit (part #MFA126) and a Louver Kit (part #MFA127). All Maradyne products are backed by a one-year limited warranty.

2014 Ram 2500 ProMaster Cargo Van

By Stephane Babcock
The inside of the ProMaster is cavernous, especially when it's empty. When I clapped my hands after jumping into the driver's seat, the sound reverberated like a bear cave. Settling into the saddle, which keeps you high above traffic after only a minor step up into the van, I was able to easily reach all the bells and whistles

Increased Demand Creates Backlogs at Upfitters

By Mike Antich
One challenge for the 2014-MY has been the increased volume of fleet vehicles going to upfitters, which has resulted in capacity issues. With the increasing demand and growth of the commercial truck/van segments, particularly among utilities and service industries, the percentage of upfitted vehicles is growing. Order-to-delivery time on large trucks keeps getting longer with upfitters. Some fleets don't place factory orders and instead purchase most their vehicle chassis from bailment pools.
