HIPPO Multipower was founded in Kansas City, Mo. in 1972 as a truck equipment upfitter, specializing in aerial bucket trucks. After developing a reputation as a mobile hydraulic equipment specialist, we built the industry’s first multipower unit in 1980—delivering hydraulic, air and electric power, all from one unit, all powered by a truck’s PTO.
In 2006 we developed the E-Model series, which operate with a separate engine drive and lower level of power output to serve a broader market. The following year, we introduced the P-Model series, which opened the door to a larger truck mounted PTO market.
We began selling the CPS units to the US Army Combat Engineers in 2008. Then, in response to a growing need in the rail industry, we developed a severe duty track-mounted version of our multipower unit and delivered the first units to Union Pacific Railroad.
We’re proud to say the HIPPO CPS 2032E was granted a National Stock Number, opening availability to all US government entities. As of December 31, 2010, the US Army Engineers HEPPOE Tool Kit was declared a program of record. The HIPPO CPS 2032E is the backbone power unit of that kit and nearly 1,000 have been fielded to military units around the world.
