LIGHTNING IN A BOX QUICKLY GETS TRUCKS FROM THE LOT TO THE SHOP

 

Challenge

episode22

A large heavy-duty truck dealer that specializes in upfitting and modifying vehicles was having issues with dead batteries. New trucks sat on the lot while waiting to be prepped. Technicians frequently needed to do multiple jumpstarts a day in order to get all the trucks into the shop.  Their current jumpstart machine wasn’t able to handle multiple jumpstarts in a short period. It also could potentially damage trucks and operators if connected incorrectly. All of these factors slowed down the process, costing the company time and money.

Solution

A Purkeys expert brought their Lightning in a Box jumpstart machine to the facility to demonstrate how it worked. The jumpstart machine has the following built in safety features:

  • Detects reverse polarity hook ups
  • Detects a correct connection
  • Current will not flow if the clamps are hooked up incorrectly
  • Puts distance between the operator and the truck by allowing the use of a handheld controller
  • Alerts the operator when a battery is frozen

These features make the jumpstart machine easy to use and safe for both vehicles and operators.

Lightning in a Box is capable of jumpstarting multiple trucks quickly without needing to recharge. This makes it a very efficient machine, enabling operators to move more trucks faster than they could with other jumpstart machines.

Results

The truck dealer was able to get vehicles with dead batteries from the lot to the shop faster and more efficiently than before. This increased their productivity and saved them money.
