The August 2011 diesel price hike of 15 cpl keeps the annual fuel cost for extra-heavy rigs covering more than 180 000 kmpa at R1-million or more. Tyre prices went up 8% on average at the beginning of July.

Expect a further increase in September along with steel price hikes for some profiles. Maintenance and repair costs continue to rise as the externalities such as the increased cost of electricity, water, rates, taxes and toll fees kick in.
