Monday, March 16th, 2015

The Work Truck Show® 2015 Green Award was presented to Miller for the company’s EnPak® power system. Miller received the award at The Work Truck Show 2015, which was held March 4–6 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The Green Award recognizes the product at The Work Truck Show that best enhances work truck fuel utilization, as determined by a panel of truck fleet managers and trade media editors on behalf of the event’s producer, NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry.

EnPak is an integrated power system that includes a rotary screw air compressor, hydraulic pump and generator, all powered by a 24.8 horsepower diesel engine. EnPak has exclusive systems to monitor user load requirements and adjust engine speed to match, plus auto start/stop technology and the EnVerter power system to efficiently power tools at low engine speeds.

When combined, the EnPak power system’s efficiency features can reduce fuel use by up to 30 percent. The system also remains fully functional when the vehicle is turned off, enabling typical users to cut idle time by up to 50 percent and extend the life of their vehicles.

The Work Truck Show is North America’s largest vocational truck event. It annually brings together more than 11,000 truck fleet managers, manufacturers, distributors, dealers, equipment buyers and maintenance personnel, and features the newest vocational trucks, vans and equipment.
