Utility and Public Works
Utility fleets often idle while preparing for the work to be done and powering loads such as lighting and power tools. This results in skyrocketing maintenance costs, excessive fuel usage, and unnecessary emissions.
The GRIP Management System has been proven to significantly reduce idling and maintenance costs while maintaining critical functions in work and bucket trucks.
GRIP in Action
We’ve helped thousands of fleets meet their reduction goals. With GRIP installed, engine operation at idle is cut between 30-70%, which reduces fuel costs, harmful CO2 emissions, and vehicle maintenance and downtime.
Safety Above All
GRIP allows work and bucket trucks to retain their core work functions. PTO, safety, and security features are all operational even when the vehicles are in monitoring mode. The system allows you to customize parameters and thresholds based on each vehicle’s duty cycle, meaning drivers never have to turn the system on or off, or set controls—everything is automatic. Your crew can focus on their job, while GRIP works in the background to reduce costs and harmful CO2 emissions.
Savings in Full
While utilities companies initially install GRIP to eliminate unnecessary idling and the environmental damage and costs associated with it, they quickly learn the full benefit of the system:
- Extending vehicle life by reducing unnecessary wear and tear
- Reduced maintenance costs due to decreased wear and tear
- Vehicle spending less time in the shop and more time in use
- Increased operator safety, security, and vehicle function
- For vehicles with DPF systems, GRIP significantly reduces the maintenance costs and failures
- Reduces fuel consumption and fewer trips to gas stations
- Reduces public complaints and improves public perception
