LOUISVILLE, KY. Starting this summer, a new auxiliary power unit (APU) will be available from Kohler Power Systems, a division of Kohler Co. The company is expanding its generator product line to include an APU specifically tailored to the needs of the trucking industry.

On display here at the Mid-America Trucking Show, the new 5-kw, air-cooled, self-contained APU weighs in at less than 350 lb. and is just 27 in. wide. The system features a direct-drive alternator and Advanced Digital Controller with LED screen that displays up to 13 operational conditions. It is tucked into a sound-attenuated enclosure to provide quieter operation. The more than 500 Kohler distributors and dealers nationwide that support the mobile generator division will provide support for the new APU as well.
