What is the average life of haul truck tires in your mine? Probably not as good as you think it should be. VISTA Training's Tire Care training program can help you take a more proactive approach to improve the life of your haul truck tires. Even a modest improvement can mean millions of dollars in savings.

One mine with a fleet of 30 Caterpillar 797 haul trucks that implemented this training program saved an estimated $3 million in tire costs! Click here to read a VISTA Mining Success Story about this customer.

This program uses a variety of scenarios and problem-solving questions to help haul truck operators avoid obvious dangers - such as running over rocks, windrows and spilled materials on the haul road. It also alerts operators to less visible hazards that tend to weaken truck tires and shorten their average life.

Haul truck operators are only part of the picture, however. This innovative training program demonstrates how operators of haul trucks, shovels and support equipment can work together to significantly increase tire life. The roles of road maintenance personnel, supervisors, managers, mine engineers and tire maintenance personnel are also explored in this program.

The bottom line is that your haul trucks are an enormous investment. Keep them productive - and avoid potential tire shortages - by training your entire team to take better care of their tires.

Trainers: Before you begin classroom or field training, why not provide your trainees with a solid foundation of knowledge about the equipment and how to operate it safety? This web-based training course can be delivered any time, anywhere you have access to a high-speed internet connection.
