‘Walkround Inspections Now So Much Easier’

SOIL & Water Solutions has improved the safety of its fleet of eight 32 tonne tippers by installing Wheely-Safe’s latest generation of intelligent tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), wheel loss and wheel rim temperature sensors.
Mark Weller, haulage director of Soil & Water Solutions, part of the Toureen Group said: “As a FORS Gold member we take safety incredibly seriously and this system fitted seamlessly onto our Scania XT tippers. “Thankfully, we’ve never had an issue with loose wheelnuts before but you can’t second guess these things. We know that at the very first sign of a problem, an alert will be sent to the driver, who can pull over and investigate fully. Plus, we have the reassurance that the sensors are constantly monitoring tyre pressures and hub temperatures too.”
Soil & Water Solutions has specified Wheely-Safe’s external TPMS sensors, which replace the normal valve caps on every tyre.
“It was really simple to fit, and is proving easy to operate and the driver feedback has been very positive,” added Mark.
“Daily walkround inspections are now so much easier, no matter what the weather conditions.”
