Save Money & Improve Yield Just By Adding TIREBOSS
Kennelly Farm joined the 1000's of TIREBOSS ™ users worldwide and purchased their first TIREBOSS ™ system for their 9200IH semi tractor pulling a tri axle end dump trailer.
The Kennelly's realized significant facts when comparing their TIREBOSS ™ semi against their tri axle straight truck without Tireboss.
Fuel Per Truck
$500 x 5 Trucks
X 8 People
$500 x 5 Trucks
Tractor, Lifter, etc
The TIREBOSS ™ semi consistently outperformed the tri axle as the tri axle needed pulling when the TIREBOSS ™ semi hauled unassisted
The TIREBOSS ™ semi configuration hauls approximately 50% more per trip (28 tons) than the tri axle (19 tons).
In the course of a 12 hour day, with each truck hauling 12 loads, the TIREBOSS ™semi hauled 336 tons and the tri axle 228 tons. The tri axle would have to continue for another 6 loads to get the same volume the Tireboss semi hauled. This is an increase of 50% in production with the semi over the tri axle.
Given the extra 6 trips (which would have taken half a day) the tri axle would spend another $300 in fuel to get the same volume.
Safety & Liability
As a side, Kennellys mentioned how clean the tire are when the trucks leave the field onto public roads. The reduced tire pressures in the field prevented mud build up between the dual tires significantly reducing material pulled onto public roads.
What This Means to the Beet Industry
HARVEST OPERATIONS PRODUCTIVITY
The increase in haul volume and productivity gains of the TIREBOSS ™ semi over the tri axle without TIREBOSS ™ can reduce the overall required harvest days by approx 20-25% in wet conditions.
A farm with 5 trucks and a couple lifters can realize operating costs in the range of $6,000/day associated with manpower, fuel, machinery wear and tear. This 25% reduction in required harvest days can equal 4-5 days with savings of around $30,000. See calculation below.
What this means to Kennelly Farms
Kennellys' configuration of choice is now TIREBOSS ™ equipped semi units given the huge operation savings'
