Recognising the potential gains in productivity that could be achieved, Dwayne Hoyle, Manager of GSS Hoyle & Co, made the decision to sell the semi tipper in favour of a Lusty EMS road train combination. 

Recent infrastructure improvements, including upgrades to major routes into the Yorke Peninsula, have opened the door to larger combinations. While previous restrictions only allowed for the access of B-doubles up to 26 metres into the region, operators can now run road trains of up to 36.5 metres, operating under Higher Mass Limits. 

GSS Hoyle & Co has been a long-time customer of MaxiTRANS, a relationship that began almost a decade ago when his Dwayne’s father purchased his first trailer. 

Although this particular combination is not a Performance Based Standards application, it was MaxiTRANS’ expertise and leadership in this field that was the basis for GSS Hoyle & Co to approach the Company in search of a solution to meet its specific freight task.

We have permits to operate all around the peninsula and have been successful in obtaining access for the routes we have applied for. 

It means with the increased payloads our productivity is improved and traffic on local roads is reduced, a saving for every stakeholder.
 
Over the course of a day, GSS Hoyle & Co has the ability to cart up to 150 tonne more than was previously possible with the B-double and single combination.  The road train can complete up to seven trips a day. 

We believe in partnering to create tailored solutions that suit unique customer requirements, rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. 

We first listen and understand a business’ requirements. 
We provide professional advice.

This allows our customers to make a more informed decision about what works for them. It’s one of the reasons why more customers are requesting MaxiTRANS’ assistance when it comes to creating solutions.
 
 

Our Solution

The key to this objective is a high payload road train with a low tare weight.    

The low tare weight Lusty EMS road train tipper combination    provides a payload gain of up to 150 tonne a day.
Each trailer in the set has a tare weight of just 6750kg. The weight saving is achieved via a lightweight, high tensile steel chassis, specifically designed to minimise tare weight, while still maintaining its strength and durability. 
 

Client's Response

“We have purchased five trailers from MaxiTRANS and have been very happy with the product. With the B-double we were achieving a payload of up to 43 tonne. We now carry up to 63 tonne across the 30-metre road train combination, operating under Higher Mass Limits with a tri-axle dolly, so we can get that extra tonnage”.

“MaxiTRANS has been able to optimise the design of the chassis to make these trailers lighter than previously,” says Dwayne.

Dwayne says of the Lusty EMS trailer “They are a great build quality and look great too. The trailers have a beautiful finish – we're really happy with the finished product. The people at MaxiTRANS have looked after us and we have had a really good run with our Lusty EMS trailers in the past. They have been very reliable, providing a great product with great service and really good dealer support.”

The key benefit of the Landslide tipper liner is that it reduces the required tipping angle by up to 30% when compared to a tipper with no liner installed. 

This reduces the tipper’s centre of gravity, providing a safer and more stable tipping platform. 

As a further safety benefit, the height of the tipped trailer is also lower, reducing the chance of an interaction with overhead obstacles. 

As well as the safety benefits, the other key difference with the Landslide tipper liner is that it is affixed to the trailer using a unique method which removes the need for rivets. The removal of rivets from the outside of the tub improves the aesthetics of the trailer and also means there are fewer catch points inside the tub, resulting in better product discharge.

Landslide also features inbuilt UV protection, ensuring that it has an optimum life in the harsh Australian sun. In addition, the liner acts as a reinforcement of the trailer, helping to absorb many of the impact and abrasion effects from materials being loaded and unloaded. This in turn protects the body from a large degree of wear and damage. 
 
Because the tipper doesn’t need to be lifted as high as what is normally required, the tipping cycle is sped up, which saves time and increases efficiency.

Our Solution

Sam Giufre sought a safer and more efficient solution that would reduce the required tipping angle whilst ensuring the tub was empty of its contents every time.  

The installation of the Landslide tipper liner not only delivered a reduction in the required tipping angle when unloading, but in turn, allowed Sam to better meet site safety requirements. The tipper liner also makes light work of tough loads, allowing for quicker and easier discharge of product even at the reduced tipping angle.

The Landslide tipper liner was created with safety and efficiency in mind. 

For Sam, the Landslide tipper liner has been proving its worth since he took delivery of his Hamelex White 20-metre PBS-approved rigid and four-axle dog combination. 

After several months in operation, Sam happily reports that the new liner has been living up to expectations.
 

Client's Response

“I have owned a Hamelex White tipper in the past, so I knew and trusted the product.”

“We cart road base and it definitely slides out very quickly, so the Landslide liner works. The tipper is fitted with a five-stage hoist and we only need to go up 3 stages before the entire load hits the ground. The load just comes out so much faster.” 

“This is the first tipper I’ve purchased with the Landslide liner fitted and if it continues to exceed expectations, I’ll definitely look at adding it to my other tippers too,” says Sam.
