Clean and Quiet Operation

The direct-drive line of units offer superior performance at lower noise levels in all operating conditions, particularly in steady state conditions. And because the units have no emissions, the CARB TRU Exemption saves you time and money by not having to register units or do expensive compliance upgrades. And SmartPower electric standby offers shore power for even cleaner and quieter operation.
