Product Feature: SlideMaster

Industry News

At RVI, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our people.

Three years ago we knew something needed to change to help our team with an easier solution to setting up the generator at each job site. We wanted something that was safe and also easy for our team.

Thanks to Slidemaster, we were able to give our employees an easier way to leave our generator still on the truck but outside without having the laborious task of unloading and manually transporting it off the truck at each job site.

Watch this video to see it in action: 

Custom-made to fit our rig and generator, this product boasts a full extension slide with a heavy load capacity. Not only is it the right tool for the job, but it gives us the opportunity to buy locally from Antigo, WI. We always love to support local businesses here in Northern Wisconsin – plus, we saved on shipping costs by picking it up ourselves!

According to the SlideMaster website, the top features of the product include: 

  • Made in the United States
  • Custom manufactured to the customer’s requirement
  • Strong and robust construction
  • Simple components, so you experience smooth rolling
  • Secure locking systems
  • Excellent support and warranty from the manufacturer
  • Over 30 years of experience in the industry

The SlideMaster has been excellent value for the money we spent. We could even install it ourselves – it’s worked like a dream over the last three years and we’re still very happy with how it has reduced the health concerns and improved the RVI working environment.

In fact, we’re so happy with it, Sam’s been thinking about other ways SlideMaster products could improve conditions on our worksites. Does anything come to mind for you and your team? 

If you’re looking for something similar, we can highly recommend SlideMaster. And remember: Taking care of your teams should always be your number one priority. If you don’t invest in your people, you’re not investing in one of the most valuable parts of your business.
