Which runs louder from your experience? Mine has been carrier operating at higher RPM = more noise, with a TK I can hear it but nearly as bad.

I can hear and feel the Carrier rumble as I drive…..is it just me? Lol

Not comparing or anything just wanting to make casual conversation with anyone who has run both and your experiences.

Lastly, I have seen more breakdowns and oil leaks on Carriers than TK, I mean eventually any mechanical thing will break or need to be taken out of service for maintenance that’s a given, but it seems to me that Carrier is a bit more needy lol

Both Carrier and Thermo King are used on the containers I run to the port. Both are extremely noisy. Each reefer will have its own pattern, but none of them are very quiet at all.

When they are that noisy, I am tempted to pull into a parking spot so the trucks around me don't have to listen to it. However, the genset is even noisier than the reefer, so I put that to the back.

My company uses Thermo-King almost exclusively. I’ve only pulled one Carrier in six months. I have not noticed a difference in noise levels. I have parked overnight next to both brands and never noticed a difference. There may be a difference, but I think it would minimal.
