Eco-Tech alternates provide a money-saving, environmentally-friendly alternative to the stock alternator that comes standard in your heavy-duty vehicle.
Why choose Eco-Tech over a standard, stock alternator?
Eco-Tech uses a patented design to deliver high output at low RPM, which differs drastically from stock alternators. Heavy-duty alternators typically come standard on larger vehicles, for example, an Navistar bus. These alternators are specifically designed to satisfy a high electrical need at idle, however, they force the engine into high RPM mode. What this means in the long run is essentially an engine that will wear out too quickly, an alternator that is working much too hard, and a battery that will have a more reduced life, due to the constant electrical spiking. Many owners of heavy-duty vehicles have found that installing other components such as high idle or load shedding devices to be helpful, however, this is unnecessary with a simple Eco-Tech alternator replacement.
