Retriever truck body can load and unload a piece of equipment without the truck’s engine having to idle because its folding ramp operates on the chassis’ compressed air system, not hydraulics. This keeps the truck and its operator in compliance with state and local anti-idling laws aimed at reducing air pollution from engine fumes, says the manufacturer. Shutting off the engine also saves fuel and wear and tear. The system includes a 60-gallon tank that is pumped to 120 psi, which is enough to load and unload a 30,000-pound piece of equipment. It takes 4 to 6 minutes to pump up the tank, so normal driving between stops should keep it charged.
