LOWELL, AR -- December 28, 2015: Keeping trailer batteries fully charged is key for increasing operational efficiency in fleets. Purkeys' new dump trailer charging system, The BOSS, allows operators to charge their batteries while driving to and from jobs.

Batteries operate more efficiently when they are fully charged. This applies to the battery that runs the hydraulic motor of a dump trailer. When the battery can stay almost fully charged it can make the motor faster, which in turn makes the dumps quicker.

The system hooks to the cable used to run the trailer lights. Allowing the battery to charge when the truck is on. The BOSS can charge almost ten times faster than the current charging system.

By using the BOSS people with dump trailers can have a more reliable trailer because the battery will always remain fully charged. It will also take out the extra step of having to plug it in when it's parked for the day because when the day is done, you should be too.
