Are you looking to reduce your delivery costs? Find out a few ways that The Retriever can help you to cut your costs.
Reduce Labor Costs
With a 35% faster loading rate, you can easily save $8,000-10,000 each year. How can it be that much faster? There are a few factors:
- Because equipment can be driven onto the truck, you don’t have to worry about winching
- Loads can be chained down from the ground because of low deck heights, which eliminates the need to climb on and off the deck
- With a large number of tie-down points, it’s quicker and easier to secure the load
Cut Down on Idling
Because of the No Idle System™, the truck doesn’t have to be turned on to load and unload payloads. How does that work? The Retriever uses the truck’s air system rather than hydraulics to power the deck and ramp. This means you can turn the engine off every time you make a pickup and delivery. This can easily save you at least $1,500-4,000 a year, depending on how often your trucks are idling.
Decrease Repairs and Other Maintenance
The Retriever was designed to be a simple, durable, low-maintenance piece of equipment. You can save bigtime on maintenance and repair costs by eliminating the need for:
- Hydraulic pump
- Hose reeving
- PTO shaft
- Power tracks
When you don’t have to worry about the repair and upkeep of these kinds of parts, you can be saving as much as $1,500-2,000 every year.
Have Larger Payloads
By using The Retriever, you can increase your payloads 8-12%. This is possible because it is 2,000-4,000 lighter than similar products, due to its strong yet light design. Not only can you add more to each load, but you could even save trips by increasing your payload, which could potentially translate to savings of $5,000-10,000.
