Hinz: “It is really for truck efficiency and also in some cases for truck configuration. In some applications our customers were previously using like a tri-drive unit or an all-wheel drive unit. They can use a Tire Boss on their drive axel and get better mobility then they can get on those other configurations. Maintenance costs are extremely low on our system. We have systems that have been out there for 20 years now and that have been transferred on two or three different trucks. So the operational costs are low for our system and the benefits are very high — increased tire life, better mobility, better efficiencies. Some of the farms we deal with have increase their harvest productivity — both in potatoes and sugar beets — where they’ve increased their harvest productivity by about 20 to 25 percent which literally knocks off four to five days off of their harvest. Well, they spend $10,000 a day on man-power and fuel. So they’ve shaved off $40,000 to $50,000 off their harvesting costs in one season. So the payback is very quick.”
