Advantage PressurePro and Trimble have introduced the Trimble TirePulse Tire Monitoring System to assist fleet managers in reducing maintenance costs, increasing overall fleet productivity and promoting site safety. TirePulse TPMS provides real time machine health information, helping lower fleet and fuel costs.

Under-inflated tires can reduce fuel economy, increase overheating, tread wear and blowouts that take a machine out of production, affecting fleet productivity and operating costs, but Trimble TirePulse can improve tire life and allow the fleet manager to proactively manage tire maintenance, resulting in improved fleet costs.

Part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio, the advanced machine monitoring solution wirelessly reports tire temperature and pressure data from the jobsite to the VisionLink fleet, asset and site productivity management solution from Trimble. Automatic, real-time tire pressure and high-temperature alerts help fleet managers and site supervisors schedule cost-effective preventative tire maintenance, extend the life of tires, increase fuel efficiency and avoid dangerous blowouts.

“Preventative maintenance is more cost effective than a machine going down suddenly with a blown tire. But with equipment moving around so much from site to site, fleet managers struggle to stay ahead of the game,” said Julian Dann, business area director for machine control.

“TirePulse is priced for installation across the entire fleet of on- and off-road machine tires, regardless of make, model or manufacturer. Increased wear or breakdown can be reported and acted upon proactively. The system can often pay for itself by preventing just one blowout.”
