Hutch Systems ELD 2020 Review

Have you used ELD 2020? We’d love to hear your opinion. Add your own review below. Or read ELD ratings and reviews from other customers.

ELD 2020 from Hutch Systems is a simple ELD with a very unique pricing option. Pay as you drive (PAYD) means you are charged only for the days you actually drive the truck. Days in which you are off-duty, sleeper berth, or personal conveyance mode don’t cost you anything. And days where you actually drive are only 99 cents per day. Hutch Systems created this pricing model for the ELD 2020 to help fleets during the economic slowdown resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Many fleets and drivers are sitting idle a lot right now, and the PAYD pricing means you don’t waste money on your ELD on days you’re not working. The pricing model is also a great fit for seasonal fleets who use their ELD only periodically.

Big scam
Jaswinder Romana — 04/20/22

Hutch eld is a scam, when we got eld, sales guy told us, balance will remain until the balance is exhausted . Now my all of my eld stop even one of that never used, now accounts told us. You can use your balance only for one year. Big scammer going to sue them.

Garbage from China.

Very user friendly device, neatly installed on the dash.

Very user friendly device, neatly installed on the dash. No wires or no mickey mouse work, just like factory installed device. Some minor glitches showed excellent backend help. Trucking company can rely on this product and owner operator can enjoy ease of use. Keep it up!

Started using it last month and had 0 problems
FREDDIE C. — 05/08/20

Most inexpensive and user-friendly eld during COVID 19. We started using it last month and had 0 problems. We literally paid $14 for the last month and don’t have to suspend the device when not using it. Super reliable and we like their support.
