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.

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.
