American Eagle Accessories made several key announcements at The Work Truck Show 2020.
The Hybrid Power Source (HPS) was launched at the event. The HPS is a self-contained hydraulic power source that utilizes automotive-grade lithium-ion technology to provide a system that is low-voltage, anti-idle-compliant, and quiet during operation. The HPS allows companies to reduce their carbon footprint by operating hydraulic equipment without the use of the chassis engine.
The HPS offers up to eight hours of run time, more than 10 years of life, and 13.5 kWh of output. It comes equipped with an integrated 48V chassis alternator, allowing the system to be charged from the chassis on-site or while driving to the next job site. Shore power charging is also an option with a standard 120V, 15-amp connection to enable the unit to slow charge while parked for the night or when chassis engine charging is unavailable.
American Eagle is expanding its LubeMate Lube Systems line with six new aluminum lube skids — the V90, V120, and V160 mobile and permanent models, which are 30% lighter than their steel counterparts. The weight savings allows operators to add a lube system without sacrificing payload.
The company also announced the release of the new 30P-3 compressor. An electrically driven air compressor, the 30P-E is driven by a 48V electric motor and controller in lieu of a traditional hydraulic system. This allows the compressor to be paired with work trucks built on an electric hybrid chassis platform. Its small footprint and produces a maximum air output of 30 cfm and up to 15 psi of air pressure.
