Hydraulic Radiator Fan

I have an '03 DSDP with the Cummins ISC 350. It has a hydraulic radiator fan on it. My question is; is the fan a single or dual speed? And if it's a dual speed, how does one check to see if the higher speed is working.

I believe mine is single speed. Some owners have had theirs upgraded to thermostat controlled so it is not running all the time ...that saves a few horse power for other use.

The easiest way is to unplug the electrical connector on the hydraulic motor. It will go to high speed as a default.

Spartan tested mine this way with the engine running. Be careful!

I know ours is a single speed. Those the have changed to the multi speed fans are reporting 1 - 2 MPG more. Coat is about $800. With fuel prices the way they are it might pay to upgrade.

At $800 cost and $4/gal, assuming gain of 1 mpg, I calculate apx 13k miles to pay for it ...for us, that would be 2 1/2 - 3 years to pay for itself/break even.
