If you’re lucky enough to visit the pit lane at the world renowned Le Mans 24 hour motor race in France you will see at least one top team working with Bahco tools.
Since 2013 Bahco has been the official hand tool partner and supplier to the Signatech-Alpine team, which competes in the World Endurance Championship and won the LMP2 category in last year’s event.
This professional partnership goes much further than fixing stickers on a car. Bahco’s specialist engineers and technicians work closely with Signatech-Alpine’s drivers and technical team.
The world class tools they use are now available to professional auto engineers and technicians across Ireland from the trade depot of PJ Fallon & Son, located on Racecourse Road, Roscommon, Co Roscommon.
A fully accredited Bahco distributor, the company has been supplying garage and bodyshop equipment and tools for more than 27 years and provides nationwide sales and service.
The Bahco brand is especially well known for its hydraulic automotive tools, including trolley jacks, cranes and accessories.
With 500 kgs lift capacity the Bahco hydraulic, single piston transmission jack is ideal for removing, installing or transporting transmissions. Only 38 strokes are needed to reach full height, thanks to a two speed pump. A double piston version, with 1,000 kgs capacity is also available.
The Bahco range includes a multi-purpose trolley jack with 1.0 tonne capacity, lightweight aluminium trolley jacks with lift capacity of 1.5 or 2.5 tonnes, as well as two trolley jacks providing extra low entrance, one with extended reach.
A 3.0 tonne, long chassis (1,270mm) high elevation (800mm) trolley jack is designed for lifting four wheel drive vehicles, vans, agricultural tractors, mini-buses and camper vans.
Air hydraulic jacks, scissor jacks and two or three step balloon jacks are also within the Bahco range.

A portable hydraulic ram straightening set is available in 4 tonne or 10 tonne versions.
