C'mon yaar this car is for carrying workers.I would say that you are like God who is going to use cars.Else we people ask local workers to come by their own and the ones which are quite far are paid daily bus rent by the supervisor and that also a minimal amount.There is no shortage of workers only,daily wage needs to be reasonable.
First of all, workers and labours are human too. By giving them small and simple luxuries, they feel you care for them, which in turn benefits you too... That is what I feel.
Secondly, by providing them transport, you increase your own work time thereby increasing productivity. From an employer's point of view, it's a small price to pay for the added benefits.
Lastly, this vehicle would also be used to carry site and safety engineers if the need arises. It is not fair to give them a vehicle without A/C.
I am also a contractor and my advise will be simple and straight: |
Get Bolero XL with DI engine.The reliability and durability of this engine is no match.Neither m2DICr nor the Dicor can take as much beating as the bare bone DI of Bolero can take.When the driver will drive then no need of any power steering,and if you want then also I think DI has its option too.
I agree what you said about the DI engine, but sadly it is available only in BS3. We want a BS4 vehicle.
Also if you provide facilities like A/C etc then it will spoil the workers and they will spoil the car.These people are in future going to ask you to pay even more if they don't get sir conditioned car for travel.
My thinking is -
if we get a UV with A/C, the windows will always be closed which will ensure that the interiors are always clean and maintained. Our site is inside a power plant which makes it very very dusty.
Also no need to spend money in SLE because the SLE can never seat as many people as the XL can.The captain seats in front wills eat just one persona and same is with the jump seats at the back,while in DI you get a row in front and longer jump seats at back.
As i said above, my first choice is the DI engine but it is not BS4 complaint.
These works of contracts etc need extensive cost cutting and you need to do it if you want to save a good amount at the end. |
Those were my views as a slightly experienced contractor..now its upon you which way to go.My choice is simple Bolero DI..NONE ELSE.
I understood what you meant. That is the reason I am confused whether to spend that extra 50k on the Sumo.
The 50k is just the beginning of the story. I somehow feel running costs and upkeep costs will be more in the Sumo than the Bolero.
