“Ex-Guard has been an invaluable addition to our fleet. We average 200-400 animal strikes a year, not counting all of the minor dings and scrapes encountered during normal operations. Before we started using Ex-Guard, animal strikes were catastrophic events which included loss of the cooling package, towing, and extended downtime. We started using deer guards 4-5 years ago and the financial impact and downtime of an animal strikes have been greatly reduced. We probably saved around $400k the first year alone. With the deer guard you still may encounter a cracked bumper or busted headlight; however, the truck is still drivable in most cases. In fact, we have deer guards that have taken 4-5 animal strikes and still running strong. We simply can’t afford not to run Ex-Guards on our trucks.”
