Vector 8600MT

The Vector 8600MT is the first commercially available multi-temperature trailer refrigeration unit that meets the 2013 EPA Tier 4 standard.

Lower Fuel Consumption

  • In many operating modes, the Vector unit’s all-electric architecture can turn components on independently, when they’re needed. And off when they’re not.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

  • The Vector system eliminates many maintenance items such as alternators, drive belts, idlers, vibrasorbers, compressor shaft seals, and clutches.

Cleaner Emissions 

  • The latest in Tier 4-compliant engines far exceeds U.S. EPA and CARB specifications. Emissions are further reduced when operated in electric standby or when equipped with the optional Engine Emissions System (EES).

Lower Noise

  • Far lower than conventional reefers because many sources of mechanical noise have been eliminated. In addition, electric standby is extremely quiet and ideal for particularly noise-sensitive neighbors.

Total Lower Cost of Ownership 

  • Bottom line, Vector 8600MT improves your bottom line. Over the life of the system, the Vector unit’s all-electric design means components run fewer hours and last longer, which creates a unit with more longevity that costs less to operate and maintain over its life.
