The ColdFire Story

My son and I operate a hay brokerage and trucking company in south central Idaho. A few years ago, we were hauling straw out of the Idaho Falls area (eastern Idaho) during a particularly harsh, cold winter.

When we got to our destination, the temperature had plummeted to 15 below!

Our trucks had been plugged in for the night and we left with the temperature hovering at 10 degrees. When we got to our destination, the temperature had plummeted to 15 degrees below! Our loader was difficult to start and we went through the usual ritual of jumper cables and starting fluid, which is very time consuming.

"

During this process it occurred to us that we had 2 trucks idling with roughly 10 gallons of 190-degree coolant in them. Could this hot coolant be transferred to a cold motor?

During this process it occurred to us that we had 2 trucks idling with roughly 10 gallons of 190-degree coolant in them. Could this hot coolant be transferred to a cold motor? The idea had merit and we built our first prototype.

 

We have worked with several concepts and are delighted to share our one-valve patented system with the rest of the cold-climate world. It is simple, reliable, and absolutely dependable. We are in production and are very proud of the ColdFire Engine Starting System. We sincerely hope that it makes your cold-weather starts a great deal easier for you, your employees and for your equipment.
