Tiretyte Tire Sealant Saves Albanese Concrete Construction Over $170,000 by Reducing their Flat Tires from 720 to Only 40
(PRWEB) May 21, 2005
“Tiretyte tire sealant has saved Albanese Concrete Construction over $ 170,000 so far by reducing their flat tires from about 720 to only 40 over the past 18 months.”
“We started using Tiretyte at Albanese Concrete nearly two years ago. On average, we were experiencing about 40 flat tires per month on our Caterpillar back-hoe tractors, Case and Volvo loaders, CAT fork lifts, etc. The average flat tire service call and repair often took two to three hours or longer, at a cost of hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. And the additional downtime expenses were eating away at our profits. So we decided to give Tiretyte a try.” Neil Kropelnicki, Fleet Mgr. of Albanese Concrete Co.in San Jose, CA, said.
“Initially, we tested Tiretyte on two heavy duty off road fork lift trucks, which went down weekly due to flat tires. During the first three months, Tiretyte reduced our forklift flat repairs to only two, from the 24 to 30 repairs we would have had over the same three months. We were so amazed at those results, we decided to install Tiretyte into our entire fleet of Caterpillar backhoe tractors, large Volvo loaders and other equipment. Once again, the results were more than amazing. Over the next 18 months, Tiretyte reduced our flat repairs to about 40, from what would have been approximately 720 flat repairs over the same period of time. And most of the 40 flats we did get were as a result of damage, which was beyond acceptable tire repair standards. Our tire repair service company even asked us who we had switched our business to, and they also were very impressed with the results.” Kropelnicki said.
“Tiretyte has sealed over 95% of the tread area punctures and damage caused by objects ranging in size from 3/16″ to 1/2″ inch in diameter. Not only has Tiretyte reduced the majority of our flats and costly downtime, but it has also proven to increase the life of our Michelin, Goodyear, General and Firestone tires by maintaining our fleet’s tire air pressure. Gasoline and fuel costs have also shot through the roof, so making sure our tire air pressures are correct is now a must. Prior to using Tiretyte, we were spending a tremendous amount of time constantly checking and adjusting our fleet’s tire pressure. Because of Tiretyte, we have been able to redirect those expensive labor hours to other maintenance requirements.” Kropelnicki said.
Kropelnicki adds, “We are happy to report our constant headaches from costly flat tires and downtime are a thing of the past. I wish we had started using Tiretyte twenty years ago because it would have already saved us millions of dollars. Tiretyte is the most amazing product I have seen during my past thirty years of fleet maintenance experience.”
