Winter weather means busy times for highway maintenance contractors. These highway heroes work around the clock clearing snow from streets and highways to keep our economy rolling, to get little Jane and Jimmy safely to school and ensure your Amazon delivery arrives on time.
The most common issue we help mechanics with at this time of year is troubleshooting emission system related faults due to idling and cold temperatures. Winter operation means an increased need for DPF regeneration and poor performance of DEF/SCR systems when plow truck operators aren’t able to achieve and maintain high emission system temperatures. Companies have anti-idling policies, use the idle shutdown timers and schedule shifts and operations to avoid idling conditions but the unpredictable nature of work often means trucks are waiting at avalanche road closures, traffic accidents and when refilling with gravel/salt.
TEXA IDC5 and Quick Service give mechanics the ability to diagnose emission system faults, force DPF regeneration and perform SCR efficiency tests, getting trucks back out clearing snow. TEXA eTRUCK enables remote diagnostic access and DPF regeneration so troubleshooting can be performed on the truck anywhere with cellular service.
