Operate the machine in the right way.
The operators themselves also found the training very good. ‘The course isn’t pointing fingers at anyone, but, rather, giving tips and helping us better ourselves’, explains Morgan Pettersson, operator at Teras with over 30 years experience. ‘It is about operating the machine in the right way and easing up on the accelerator, even when it seems tight. If you drive a smooth and even pace you’ll get just as much dine as when you accelerate and brake hard.’
And the training made a difference?
‘Yes, there’s a big difference’, says Jerker Carlstrom. ‘Following the first sessions some operators reduced their consumption by up to 20-25%, without reducing productivity. And even with my own private car I’ve managed to reduce fuel consumption by between 10- 15%’.
