Q&A with Michael Roden: The Future of Truckmounts.
I see a couple of trends in the truckmount industry. First, the size and load capacity of the vehicles are going to shrink. That puts the pressure on manufacturers to produce smaller, more powerful and more fuel efficient units.
Second, government regulations through CARB and EPA will continue to drive up the cost of engines which will decrease the diversity of engines available for truckmounts. Eventually all engines will be EFI (electronic fuel injection). Technicians will need to have the skills and knowledge to better service these machines.
