The U36 Crossover was designed to provide reliable, emission-free energy to power hydraulic lifts and equipment on bucket trucks. It can be factory-integrated into new vehicles or retrofitted to existing utility vehicles. The system can run the truck’s auxiliary electrical equipment, tools, motors, pumps, hydraulic booms, lights, radio and laptop without the need to engage the engine or use a generator. The system includes an Energy Xtreme power management system, electric motor, pump and control module. It has a small footprint, weighs less than 750 lbs. and plugs into a 30-amp wall outlet to recharge. Fleet users are finding that the system reduces their payload by 35 percent and reduces maintenance.
“We are honored to receive the Work Truck Show Green Award,” says Energy Xtreme CEO Devin Scott. “As fuel prices continue to rise, our products have proven especially relevant and provide a cost-efficient way to reduce consumption and eliminate emissions while increasing functionality.”

Buyers of work trucks and the major commercial truck chassis manufacturers also belong to the Association.
