Thermo King will be introducing a full range of EPA Tier IV Final compliant solutions, beginning January 1, 2013. Thermo King believes that the innovative, ground-breaking Precedent platform will set new industry standards in both fuel efficiency and emissions control and will include >25hp single and multi-temperature trailer models and <25hp single temperature models. The decision to offer a >25hp, EPA Tier IV final solution, enables Thermo King to continue production of its current range of SB models throughout 2013, allowing customers the widest possible array of options during the transition period.
Due to the expected customer demand, Thermo King will have a limit on availability of its popular SB230 model and will require all orders to be placed by March 31, 2013, with shipment required no later than December 31, 2013. It is not expected that the SB230 will be available beyond 2013. Orders will be accepted and filled on a first come, first served basis in accordance with EPA rules.
