There is no limit to Sleipner
As a contractor, you typically get paid only according to production tonnes. The increase in productivity enabled by better mobility and reduced service costs translates to a lower cost per tonne, improving your total profitability. Sleipner dollies and lowbed trailers reduce tracked equipment transport times by up to 85% while minimising unproductive idle time. This means that the utilization rate and availability of tracked equipment are increased, and you can expect an increase in produced tonnes of between 12% and 20%.
Putting your fleet on wheels with Sleipner dollies and trailers offers you whole new flexibility for planning your operations. Improved mobility let you do the same work with one less excavator. Your bulldozers or drills will spend less time in transport and more time working, enabling their flexible relocation and resource sharing according to customer needs. Sleipner dollies and trailers let you restructure your entire fleet, achieving the same tonnage and service level with fewer machines.
Your contracting work can take you to locations where it is challenging to perform field repairs and maintenance. Sleipner dollies and trailers enable you to easily transport your tracked equipment to a workshop for service and maintenance, which is at least 20% faster – as well as safer. What’s more, field maintenance and refuelling always pose more spillage risks, making workshop maintenance more environmentally friendly.
With less need for weary tramming, Sleipner dollies and lowboy trailers reduce the maintenance costs of the tracked equipment by doubling or even tripling the lifespan of the undercarriage. They reduce maintenance costs and labour hours, improve safety and minimise environmental risks. And after service, the equipment can be easily dropped off at the next working location according to the production needs of your current client.
Mining companies are known to request annual pricing reductions from their contractors. With Sleipner dollies and trailers, it is possible to run a profitable business even when your contract prices drop! The last-minute production plan changes made by your clients can also be a challenge, as the relocation of your tracked equipment can become costly and time-consuming. By reducing the time spent on relocation up to 85% with Sleipner products, you can use the time saved on profitable work – minimising losses.
