Why a HydraMaster Direct Drive Truckmount is the choice of so many cleaning and restoration professionals

Slide-in vs. Direct Drives

Truckmounts are available as either slide-ins or direct drives. Slide-in machines basically “slide” into the back of a van or box truck and are powered by their own engines.  In contrast, direct drives are attached to a van’s drive train or use the engine to power a generator in order to use the vehicle’s motor for heat and power.

If you don’t have a lot of startup money, a slide-in truckmount will let you take 51378282_2280680855299600_6757230647607033856_nadvantage of installation in an older, lower-cost vehicle. Should your vehicle break down or you want to upgrade your van later, a slide-in also can more easily be moved since they are only bolted to the floor.

Direct drives on the other hand tap a van’s engine for power and heat via a clutch system attached to the vehicle’s drive train or via a generator that is attached to the motor to create a hybrid like electric 49948453_783916835317657_7354452056343576576_npower system. With no engine to wear and tear, they require much less maintenance and offer the highest reliability and longevity. Direct drives take up less cargo space than slide-ins, too, leaving more room for additional equipment.  You will, however, need to figure in the additional cost of a new van with a direct drive unit.
