Super Lawn Trucks
Super Lawn Trucks Can Lower Your Insurance Costs
Any insurance corporation will tell you that finding new and better ways to reduce workplace accidents and injuries to valued employees is a daunting task. The cost of workplace safety and accident prevention isn't just a legal requirement – it is a charge that goes straight to your bottom line. We know that a top priority for green industry owners is to control losses and manage risks, all the while protecting workers, products, equipment and of course, profits.
As a Risk Control Manager for W.S. Pharr who has provided insurance to this industry for more than 20 years, I can tell you that the top losses for these companies are from stolen equipment and work related injuries.
Finding a piece of equipment that not only reduces one of those headaches, but both is a stroke of luck for any owner. With that in mind, I can see that the Super Lawn Trucks were designed to protect landscape business owners from the common risks of daily operations and at the same time allowing for flexibility, efficiency and productivity.
Here are just a few features we found on the Super Lawn Truck system that can help owners control some of those costs and losses:
- Hydra Ramp System: is the only ramp offered on a landscape truck that is fully hydraulic - reducing manual lifting injuries. Plus, the ramp is coated with an anti-skid epoxy that provides more slip resistance than the standard expanded metal decks.
- Enclosed Truck Bodies: allows a company to store equipment overnight eliminating the need for daily loading/unloading, which has attributed to over 30% of our customers worker compensation losses. The enclosed body is also a secure and lockable place to store equipment thus eliminating the threat of theft.
- Debris Dumper: its hydraulic dumping operation and swinging door access for side loading safely carries and quickly dumps landscape waste. Additionally, it prevents debris from coming in contact with hot engines and causing damage to equipment, and the truck.
- Other Safety Features: all Super Lawn Trucks have the option to come equipped with an auxiliary fuel system that removes the need to carry gas cans avoiding theft or dangerous spills during transport. Along with the cab forward design, these trucks also increase maneuverability and reduce the risk of costly accidents.
At the end of the day, every business owner wants to set and achieve higher risk management standards, thus improving their insurability and reducing costs. In this case, the benefits realized by owning a Super Lawn Truck system will positively improve a company's ability to meet long-range financial and business goals.
I'd like to thank you for your role in developing such a practical product and fostering a safer workplace within our industry.
