A balanced bus – little people get a better ride too

A balanced bus means little people get a better ride too.

G’DAY FOLKS! Simon here from the Atlas Balance Company. A change of speed today as we meet up with Mark from CHINCHILLA Christian College who has been watching us for a while, contemplating, and now has FITTED THE BUS all the way through ON STEERS and DRIVES. Is what all the TRUCK DRIVERS are saying is true? Absolutely yes, we can SAVE YOU UP TO 50% on your TYRE WEAR.

You’ll see here the Atlas Balance Rings are balancing the whole tyre and wheel assembly regardless of the speed, as Mark drives on concrete and bitumen out to Dalby and then out yonder on that bumpy road out to Chinchilla.

This is called a Euro Asian Balance Ring as this is an EURO BUS and it sits between the duals balancing both wheels. Do you balance just the front end of your family car? No! So of course, you will also balance the back end of your truck and buses, and importantly this rig is carrying – people…little people – so even more significant that the ride is smooth. If you don’t like the Rings, you simply give them back – you have a 365-day money-back guarantee and a 5-year warranty.

SAVING around 21,840 LITRES of DIESEL FUEL

G’day Folks, on this rainy Friday. “We are talking to Matt from BIG WHEELS GEELONG who fitted out Truck number 42 from DRT in Geelong. They have done heaps of their rigs but just did a test of a new FTE Quad Fridge Van that runs from Sydney to Melbourne. Now as it’s fully fitted out with Atlas Balance Rings; yes, they are getting extra tyre life – but GET THIS!!!!! – 70 LITRES in SAVINGS PER TRIP on average!!!! Multiple that by 5 or 6 days a week or 52 weeks a year …SO SAVINGS of around 21,840 LITRES – and how MANY DOLLARS SAVED ??

If they can do it, so can you! 365 Day Moneyback Guarantee, and 5-year product warranty. Australian-made, Australia-Owned, Remember… it’s Atlas, It’s Balanced!

Balanced trailer wheels ‘sing’ together for the benefit of planet Earth.

So you take the family car – let’s say it’s a Toyota LandCruiser or a HiLux – in for a wheel balance and you say, ‘Mate, just balance the front two wheels, thanks!’


It’s unthinkable, right? And even more so when you consider the business end of a rig.
Many drivers start by balancing just the steers with Atlas Balance Rings and feel the difference immediately, so pretty soon they work out the benefits of balancing the steers and trailers too.
Nicholas Thompson from Thompson Transport started by putting a set of balance rings on just one Kenworth B double running super singles.


“The driver came back two days later asking what we had done to the truck as it simply held onto the road better,” said Thompson. “Since I hadn’t driven it myself yet, I took it for a ride the next day and noticed how smoother a drive it was on our country roads, hence why we put in another order to fit out the whole rig and fleet. A few months on and we have a ( delete) flat, even wear on the tyres for a change.”


Gary Faulkner from Faulkner Carrying in Boonah has a fleet of UD and Volvo curtain sider trucks running Atlas Balance Company rings.


“We are very happy with the results,” said Faulkner. “Given the condition of some of the roads we travel on, wheel balancing is an issue. Before fitting the balance rings, drivers regularly complained of steering shake or shudder. Since fitting the rings this problem has been eliminated altogether, also removing the need for our tyre fitter to remove and balance steer tyres at least two times in the life of the tyre. The added bonus is that once you purchase the balance rings you have no more balancing costs as they will outlast most trucks.”


The math also makes sense. At about $250 per tyre for eight (or 16 or more) drive wheels, even a 25 per cent ( add) saving on tyre life can translate to a $750 saving on every $2000 spent on tyres – and Atlas Balance Company said most customers reported up to 50 per cent longer tyre life.
Fossil fuels are required to power trucks, but we can reduce the load on the planet where possible by using less fuel, less rubber and recycled materials safely.
When a driver is matched with the right tyre pressures and wheels that are aligned and balanced, the wheels sing together, drivers are safer and less weary and so is planet Earth.

BRISBANE TRUCK SHOW A BLAST


Atlas Balance Company caught up with many of its customers at the Brisbane Truck Show and said drivers like Simon Savage, Marty Murphy and more were all seeing the benefits of balancing a whole truck for ride comfort and for diesel and tyre savings.


Atlas Balance Company said the subject of balance beads came up with many drivers it spoke to, specifically the impact of beads wearing the inside of the tyre, as well as beads getting caught in the seals allowing air to escape.


It said a completely encapsulated liquid system of balancing was by far the best solution, especially when recycled materials were used.

Hundreds of thousands of kms of extra tyre life

Simon from the Atlas Balance Company has a great story involving getting hundreds of thousands of extra kilometres out of your truck tyres. ” When I started supplying balance rings to Errol at @SRV, it was for just one rig. Now; 93 rigs are balanced with Atlas Balance Rings. I admire SRV. Of course, the fleet looks great with schmick shiny stuff, but it’s just as important for Errol too; to know how things are running on the inside. Matt, the Workshop Manager reports that they are now getting over 200,000 kilometres on the steers – that’s an extra 100,000 km! – So, they’ve been fitting out the drives as well. When you see these running down the road; think about how what you are running, the money you are spending on tyres, the mileage you’re getting, and how you feel are driving your rig feeling the rattling and shaking. For a small one-time fee – you may get an extra 100,000 kilometres of tyre life!

For Atlas, it’s just another typical Friday story. With a 5-year Warranty and 365 Day money-back Guarantee; It’s Atlas, It’s Balanced!

ATLAS BALANCE in the News!

ATLAS BALANCE in the News! Experiment proves truck drivers correct with cost-saving Balance Rings

The Atlas Balance Company backs tyre-life savings claims with research at the Kangan TAFE Institute in Melbourne.  Led by Institute Manager Andrew Robson, before & after testing of Atlas Balance Rings’ wheel balancing properties were carried out on a testing module called a Chassis Dynamometer  – the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere; from 10 km to 100 km per hour. The results easily show that the shaking and rattling, measured in millivolts (mV) were more than double on trailer wheels without the atlas balance rings.

As the results show; ( see https://atlasbalance.com.au/experiment-proves-truck-drivers-correct-with-cost-saving-balance-rings/  ) at 60 km with the Atlas Balance Ring fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 27 millivolts; without Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – at 60 km 63 millivolts imbalance.

At 100kms per hour the results are dramatic. With the Atlas Balance Ring fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 50 millivolts; without Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – 114mV ( millivolts)  imbalance.

Dekecat Pty Ltd fit Atlas Balance Rings to new Robuk Trailers

Just this past week Marty Murphy from DEKECAT, at Hemmant in Queensland took delivery of two Robuk Trailers – another fine Australian company, and he immediately fitted the rings throughout the A and B trailers. This rig is going to be working hard on those central Queensland corrugations –on those harsh roads, it’s vital to keep Marty’s trailer tyres balanced as well as the steers. Said Marty, “ Just fitting Balance Rings to the steers and not the drives, is like just only balancing the front wheels of the family car, makes no sense at all. And this is the vehicle that’s paying all the bills .”

Experiment proves truck drivers correct with cost-saving Balance Rings

We know thousands of Australian Truck and Bus Drivers have conducted their own cost-saving tests using Atlas Balance Rings, and are very happy campers, BUT THIS IS SCIENCE – to back up your research. 

At the Kangan Institute in Melbourne we carried out before and after testing of Atlas Balance Rings from 10 km to 100 km per hour, run by Institute Manager Andrew Robson  The graphs easily show that the shaking and rattling, measured in millivolts (mV) were more than double WITHOUT THE ATLAS BALANCE RINGS.

As the results show ( see graphs) at 60 km WITH the ATLAS BALANCE RING fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 27 millivolts; with NO Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – at 60 km 63 millivolts imbalance.

At 100kms per hour the results are dramatic. WITH the ATLAS BALANCE RING fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 50 millivolts; with NO Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – 114mV ( millivolts)  imbalance.

Oscilloscope Reports show;

  1. Drive axle with balance rings at 60kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 27mV
  2. Drive axle with no balance rings at 60kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 63mV. That’s double the balance ring value.
  3. Drive axle with balance rings at 100kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 50mV
  4. Drive axle with no balance rings at 100kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 114mV. Again, double the voltage
