As a leading player in one of the most demanding sectors for commercial vehicles and equipment, the team needed a way to reduce their escalating tyre costs, whilst boosting reliability and overall safety. The implementation of ContiPressureCheckTM across its fleet has proven to be the perfect fix for the company’s challenging needs.
Operating across the South-East of England since 1983, a deep level of knowledge, understanding and professionalism has seen Kane Group develop from a loose muck-away and aggregates business into a multifaceted earthworks, construction, demolition and waste removal firm. Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, the group incorporates five separate companies and holds a combined fleet totalling more than £7million.
Prior to fitting our ContiPressureCheck™, Kane Group struggled to maximise the working life of its tyres. Damage was common and tyres were being removed from service prematurely. "Tyres, or more specifically dealing with tyre failures, is an expensive cost to the business and it’s an outgoing that traditionally has been hard to control,” Jordan admits. “In this line of work, it’s very easy to run an under-pressure tyre, but ContiPressureCheck™ has undoubtedly helped to remedy this issue.”
The ContiPressureCheck™ digital tyre monitoring system offers drivers precise, real-time status information about the condition of a vehicle’s tyres. Through the continuous monitoring of internal air pressure and temperature via sensors, the system will warn the driver of changes before the situation becomes critical. Adaptable for the needs and requirements of most commercial fleets, the system can be effectively utilised both on-and-off road and can be efficiently scaled dependant on demand.
