We used to have a considerable amount of carry back on our fleet of Articulated Dump Trucks. With the installation of Quicksilver bin liners we have been able to greatly reduce this, which has greatly improved our productivity. We are very satisfied with this company and their product and would highly recommend Wiltech and their…
After looking at what was available on the market we have chosen Quicksilver to line our fleet of off road Cat730 dump trucks. Quicksilver has been the market leader for many years and after talking with Richard from Wiltech Solutions and having demonstrations and feedback from some of his other clients we are more than happy to run with Quicksilver. We work very closely with our customers so that they get the best out of the gear that we provide for them. Hick Brothers were the first to get Quicksilver installed to their fleet and they saw immediate results with the payback coming in just a few weeks.
From day one we saw a huge improvement in productivity in our Cat 730 Dumpers. Prior to lining our dumpers with Quicksilver we had average of around 5 cubic meters of hang-up in our trucks. Once we had 7 trucks lined (which only took 8 days) we increased our productivity by about 210 cubic meters…
We had a problem with contamination in our quarry. Our 60ton dumpers carry different grades of metal to the stock piles but the hang up was creating a problem. We would have to hose out the tray when ever we went from one grade to another slowing the process up considerably. Since lining our dumpers with Quicksilver we have had virtually zero contamination as the whole load releases and the tray is clean ready for the next load.
Our loaders shift clay for bricks and tiles which causes major hang up problems in the buckets. I had tried other liners but they just didn’t last the distance that Quicksilver has. We only use Quicksilver on all our gear now as it has the longevity and release capabilities that we require to keep our plant running.
Stevensons have been using this product now for years. We currently have Truck and Trailers lined with Quicksilver and we are very pleased with the product. No matter what type of product we carry, nothing sticks to the Quicksilver Body Liner. This allows us a faster turnaround on job sites. The maintenance on our alloy tipping bodies is now virtually nonexistent.
We did change to a cheaper liner from another supplier some years ago but found to our expense that this was a mistake. The liners that we purchased wore out after only 2.5 years (we noramlly get 7-10 years from a Quicksilver Liner) so relined these bins with Quicksilver and will never use anything else.
Since installing our first Quicksilver Liner in 2000 we noticed our productivity increase and our maintenance costs decrease. We installed Quicksilver liners to the rest of our truck and trailer fleet which has helped us perform better in the market place, extra loads means the company gets a better return.
Touch wood we have not had a stationery rollover on any of our Quicksilver lined bodies which has given us an added benefit with savings in our insurance premiums. Maintenance has decreased, no more wear plates in the decks, hydraulic ram, chassis and drive train maintenance have all decreased due to the load releasing evenly and smoothly without the need for back slamming. With the load releasing at about half the height of an unlined tipper, spreading has been a hell of a lot easier without the constant worry of rolling over and overhead power lines.
The liners paid for themselves in no time with the initial cost being offset by the extra productivity and savings in other areas. I would recommend Quicksilver Liners to anyone in the contracting business.
Mushi and I wish to thank you and your team at WILTECH for the excellent job done when lining our truck bins with Quicksilver. We were probably one of your first customers because subsequently everywhere our trucks worked people were in awe of the ease with which we get rid of our loads – no more cleaning surfaces with spades, just a clean and easy tip result. Before Quicksilver we often had ram damage having to lift the bin too high to tip, now the load is gone before it is lifted halfway! Our trucks are the envy of many a contractor and we have had so many jobs come our way because of the Quicksilver linings. It works absolutely fantastic!
We have not only found an excellent company in WILTECH but have formed a lasting relationship with you and your courteous staff. Thank you for the assistance given to us when our business needed a lift.
I have picked up productivity by 20 – 25% since lining my digger buckets with Quicksilver. I was continually banging and shaking my buckets to get the clay and dirt out but now all I do is give the bucket a flick and the load is gone. I am also saving on maintenance costs because of this.
