Harrison Hydra-Gen Tool Circuit Generator

The Tool Circuit Generator from Harrison Hydra-Gen is built to allow for flexibility. Because it doesn’t have to be permanently mounted, it can be there when you need it and out of the way when you don’t. With quick-disconnect hoses, and the ability to hang from a bucket or to quickly connect to a hydraulic tool circuit, it can go wherever you need it to go – bumpers, truck beds or hanging from the bucket.

The generator weighs approximately 60 pounds; requires virtually no maintenance or additional fuel; is 50 percent lighter and smaller than gas generators; has no gas emissions; and emits little noise or vibration. Additionally, it has a variety of features that allow for easy integration into your existing fleet, including the ability to be used with your existing hydraulic tool circuit. www.harrisonhydragen.com



Air Lift Co. Offers Air Spring Kits

To create a safe, comfortable ride for the 2015 Ford Transit 150, 250, 350 and 350 XLT models, Air Lift Co. has custom engineered two easy-to-install air suspension options that can handle the challenge of heavy loads and towing needs.

Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 air spring kit works with the existing suspension to deliver up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity. Air adjustable to keep vehicles stable, level and comfortable whether loaded or unloaded, this kit is designed for the needs of occasional users who want improved handling while eliminating sag and reducing suspension wear. Easy to install, these LoadLifter 5000 kits require no drilling into the frame and include roll plates to protect the air springs from sharp edges.

The LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE air spring kit provides all the benefits of a LoadLifter 5000 kit with the addition of an internal jounce bumper for enhanced ride comfort and suspension protection. Virtually maintenance-free, LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE is adjustable for a safe, comfortable ride, loaded or unloaded.

For convenient air spring inflation and deflation, Air Lift offers wired, wireless and automatic onboard air compressor systems to provide one-touch or hands-free control of the air springs. www.airliftcompany.com
