Propane tractor addresses emissions, operation costs in terminals, ports

May 19, 2016 By    

TICO Manufacturing’s Pro-Spotter terminal tractor incorporates a propane engine that is designed and engineered by Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI). The terminal tractors are used at distribution centers, rail terminals and ports. TICO’s propane-fueled tractor represents a new opportunity for terminals and ports to reduce emissions and lower total vehicle operation costs by saving on fuel and maintenance. TICO says it is running pilot programs across the United States and will begin taking orders for the new tractor in late summer of this year, with deliveries expected to begin in late fall. PSI adds that its 8.8-liter engine with an Allison automatic transmission fulfill the power, efficiency, emissions and fuel-flexibility demands across a range of applications, including medium-duty trucks, buses and recreational vehicles.
