Heavy Duty Hungry Boards Optimise Your Hauling Operations

Haul trucks travel around the mining site carrying materials between the mines and storage spaces. Increasing the payload of each trip by even 1% can make a significant difference in operating costs. The damage that spillovers can do to vehicles is also a concern.

That’s where hungry boards come into the picture. Hungry boards function as a rail or framework added to the top edges of the truck body to increase their capacity and reduce spillovers.

Why Opt For Polyethylene Over Traditional Hungry Boards?

Hungry boards started as steel wings or permanent fixtures that were welded or added to the body of haul trucks. These traditional boards added a lot of tare weight to the truck, reducing the available payload, and lesser payload leads to a loss of revenue. Steel hungry boards are also susceptible to rust, corrosion and erosion by hazardous materials.

In comparison, polyethylene hungry boards are weather resistant, eliminating rusting and weather damage concerns. Polyethylene hungry boards also weigh significantly lesser than their steel counterparts. As they are made from polyethylene, these hungry boards are also resistant to abrasion and damage from hazardous materials.

Benefits of Using Hungry Boards

Adding hungry boards to your trucks might be the simplest way to improve your hauling operations significantly.

Here’s a list of direct and indirect benefits the hungry boards can offer:

  • Increases Payload
  • Reduces Carryback
  • Reduces Wear
  • Minimises Spillage
  • Improves the Equipment Utilisation
  • Reduces Hauling Operation Costs
