In 2012, a customer bought the E400 from Sleipner. We calculated that their excavator usually drives approx. 345km annually (6% of total working time). In the first year they had experienced the following returns for their investment.
Increased productivity and flexible use of existing equipment
They now had 486 more hours available for production elsewhere, and all with the existing resources.
Reduced operational costs
They had improved operations profitability by saving 70,700 liters of diesel during traveling.
Minimized travel time
The total amount of time their equipment had spent in transit was now only 37 hours.
Reduced maintenance costs
The amount of time spent on maintenance had fallen by 26%.
Improved operator satisfaction
The E400 was up and running within 4 months of the purchasing decision, and it fully paid for itself within 7 months.
Zero incidents were reported when using the straightforward Sleipner system.
