Blademaster Breaking new ground in Mexico

Recently completed independent field trials of Blademaster Ground Engaging Tools have demonstrated wear life 2 1/2 times longer than a leading brand of GET products. The excellent results for Blademaster grader edges were trialled on a 16H Caterpillar Grader machine operating in very harsh conditions in a mine unit in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico

Blademaster grader edges were fitted to a 16H Caterpillar Grader machine.  The blades operated for 368 machine hours without replacement (see table below for detailed analysis). This is 2 1/2 times longer than the wear life of the leading brand grader edges normally used at the mine resulting in a cost per hour reduction of  over 75%

Part Values Hours Cost Per \hour

4T-8317 Leading Brand 144.7 $9.45

Oscar Chavez, General Manager of Powermaq International stated, "Here at Powermaq we really believe in the quality of the products we sell, which is why we are delighted to be the appointed distributor for Blademaster ground engaging tools manufactured in the UK.  Recent trials carried out by one of Mexico's top three mining companies proved once again, that price should not only be the only criteria when selecting ground engaging tools.  Blademaster considerably outperfomed one of the worlds leading brands and paets manufactured in the Far East to deliver a substanital cost savimg per hour for our customer, now thats what we call a result!
