All fleet operators know the two biggest cost drivers in their company: fuel consumption and tyre wear. If you want to run your business profitably and economically on an ongoing basis, you have to be aware of the direct correlation between these two factors. The only way to minimise wear and significantly reduce fuel consumption is by permanently monitoring and consistently maintaining the correct tyre pressure. Which is why SAF-HOLLAND has developed the SAF TIRE PILOT, an intelligent assistant for you and your fleet.
If you want to protect your tyres over the long term and save fuel in the process, you need a system that consistently maintains the preset tyre pressure. As soon as the tyre pressure drops, the rolling resistance increases which causes higher tyre wear while also increasing fuel consumption and consequently the environmentally harmful CO2 emissions.
Features and Benefits
The system monitors and actively regulates the tyre pressure
The SAF TIRE PILOT systematically checks the tyre pressure and readjusts it if it drops too low. Your investment in the system will start paying off within just a few months and you will get your full return on investment after one year.
The SAF TIRE PILOT prevents total tyre failures
Insufficient tyre pressure causes 85% of total tyre failures.
The system recognises in time when the tyre pressure is within the critical range, increases it and, as a result, significantly reduces the risk of an accident or the risk of failure, so that the tyre can enjoy a long service life.
Benefits at a glance
· monitors the tyre pressure permanently and reliably
· tops up the tyre pressure independently, maintains the minimum pressure in case of puncture damage
· warns the driver if the pressure drops too low
· reduces tyre wear
· responds to a pressure deviation of just 0.2 bar, which makes it more precise than commercial tyre pressure monitoring systems
· saves fuel
· reduces the risk of failure
The SAF TIRE PILOT is easy to retrofit
If you are planning to buy a new trailer and want to equip it with the SAF TIRE PILOT, please talk to your vehicle manufacturer. The SAF axles you specify will then be factory-prepared for the SAF TIRE PILOT system.
