At PrimeTransportSolutions LTD we recognise that trading in today’s challenging economic
conditions is tough, we understand that every penny counts and ultimately can be
the difference between a successful profitable business and one that is struggling
financially to keep its head above water. With this in mind we believe that the
cost savings you will bring to your business when you change over to the PTS50 from
conventional winding legs are far too good to pass up.
The PTS50 offers cost savings in fuel and man hours due to the efficiency of the
Pneumatic legs against hand winding legs. Over all there is a 97% decrease in engine
idle time and driver downtime when carrying out the process of lowering or raising
the landing the legs by reducing a 3 minute cycle time to a 5 second process.
But your savings will not stop there!….Overall trailer weight is reduced by a minimum
of 15 KGs per set, the PTS50 is lighter than all similar models with the same static
load capacity which will see a further reduction in fuel costs on every mile/km travelled.
Trailer down time and lost man hours due to problems with damaged landing legs that
cannot be wound up manually will also be a thing of the past. The PTS50 system can
be manually raised if the pneumatic system is damaged, the trailer can then continue
on its route before returning to the depot for maintenance. This saves extortionate
mechanical call out charges and fees.
One of the largest trailer repair costs in conjunction with landing legs is the damage
from crank handles not properly stored after operation. This leads to damage to
the cranks, side sheet damage and more as other trailers are pulled in and out make
contact with the handles, so reducing repair cost from yard damage is a real cost
