Minimizer Fast Flaps has earned a second industry award for its product Fast Flaps. Equipment Today magazine has named Fast Flaps one of its 2017 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products, one of the construction industry’s only award programs based on consumer feedback.
“We are honored, because this award comes from the people that use this product every day,” said Craig Kruckeberg, Minimizer CEO and chief visionary. “You can’t get better feedback than that.”
Fast Flaps secure mud flaps without creating any holes in the flap or sacrificing strength. It takes more than 500 pounds of pressure to detach a mud flap from the Fast Flaps stainless steel bar, and the result doesn’t damage the flap.
“When we came out with Fast Flaps last year, we knew we had a winner,” said Kruckeberg. “The past 18 months have only confirmed what we already knew – this product is an outstanding cost-saving addition for fleets!”
The 2017 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products are compiled based on reader inquiries from Equipment Today magazine as well as user engagement on ForConstructionPros.com.
The first Fast Flaps video on Minimizer’s Facebook page has more than 1 million impressions, and it’s one of the most popular products across its social media platforms.
Minimizer also has unveiled another option for truck drivers – the Insert-Style Slick Plate.
The Insert-Style Slick Plate is specifically designed for trucks that have Holland fifth wheels with built-in lube plate inserts. These models include the Holland FWAL, FW31 and FW33 fifth wheels.
“Minimizer’s new Insert-Style Slick Plate complements our line of other greaseless products that truly do help truck drivers get rid of that mess with a solution that lasts longer and costs less in the long run,” said Kruckeberg. “We’re excited to offer this solution for customers that are looking for the longest-lasting insert on the market today.”
“Nobody likes grease,” said Kruckeberg. “I hated when I had to clean grease off my father’s truck, but in those days, you had no choice. Now you do.”
By using the Minimizer Insert-Style Slick Plate, truck drivers and fleets no longer have to grease the fifth wheel’s top plate. It simply makes things easier and cleaner, plus it saves money.
