Talon Lockjaw Underground GET continues to prove itself, doubling the wear life of its competitors in the market.
The success follows on from the outstanding results in the controlled trial run against the leading underground GET in the market where two machines (CAT 2900’s) went head to head on the same mine.
The Talon Lockjaw delivered an incredible 87 percent cost saving based on better wear rates and comparative costs per engine hour in the trial.
The trial was run over a 13-week period. Talon shrouds were not changed while the competitor changed half-life corners and wore through one complete set. Calculations were based on total engine hours less idle hours and the Talon GET cost per hour was $8.05 AUD against the competitor at $15.04 AUD. All data and measurements were verified by the client on site. No additional calculations on costs associated with GET changeouts were included. This controlled trial has proven that the Talon Lockjaw has superior wear properties and an improved product design that can reduce GET costs and change outs required in underground applications.
Talon GET Business Development Manager, Pedr Chapman, reported that customers are impressed with the better wear properties of the Talon product.
“With the focus Talon have placed on the “through hardness” our customers can confidently predict the wear rates and better plan their GET changes, this along with the hammerless
locking system means that the downtime for GET maintenance is greatly reduced,” he explained.
