American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council has created an updated version the industry’s leading truck maintenance resource, the 2012-13 Recommended Practices Manual. As always, it provides a wealth of knowledge about maintenance and engineering practices in trucking. The current edition is a 2900-page two-volume set (in printed form) that includes both the Recommended Maintenance Practices manual and Recommended Engineering Practices Manual. Carriers and equipment manufacturers depend on it when it comes to the purchase, design, maintenance, and performance of equipment.
The set is available in book or searchable CD format, the latter for sale now while the books won’t be released until June. TMC members will automatically receive the CD as part of their member benefits.
Members can also buy the CD (single user) for US$249 ($329 for non-members). while an enterprise version of the CD will set members back $2500, or $3333 for non-members.
Members can buy two-volume book set for $249, while non-members will pay $329. The Maintenance volume only can be had for $129/$169 and the Engineering volume alone for the same price.
