Q:

How many managers have heard from a driver, “I can't lower my idle, because I have to keep the engine running in order to run the liftgate."?

A:

Many driver habits come from a one-time incident. While it is true that a liftgate will drain a battery after 7-10 cycles, most stops do not require that level of use. Additionally, all our Idealease units with liftgates have low voltage protection. The driver can be confident that if the liftgate goes through multiple cycles and stops, the truck will still start without an issue.
