ASM Truck Diagnostics boosts workshop with Totalkare lifts and brake tester

Commercial vehicle repairer ASM Truck Diagnostics is set to benefit from increased workshop productivity after investing in a new set of Totalkare mobile column lifts and a mobile brake tester.

ASM Truck Diagnostics says it has increased its vehicle maintenance capabilities at its workshop in Essex in order to meet increased demand.

Having previously installed a set of mobile column lifts from Totalkare in 2017, the repairer has added a brand new set of four T8DC mobile column lifts and a mobile brake tester, while also investing in online training from the heavy duty workshop equipment specialists.

With a safe working load capacity of 7,500kg per column, the cable-free T8DC is a versatile vehicle lifting solution that can be used in combinations of four, six or eight columns.  In addition, it features adjustable forks to accommodate a variety of wheel diameters.

The fully mobile brake tester can test up to 16,000kg per axle. Testing is made simple thanks to the supplied tablet which enables tests to be carried out from the driver’s seat of the vehicle.  With no civil work required, installation is simple and straightforward.

Totalkare’s online mobile column lift training is CPD-certified and provides operatives with the key learning and understanding (including legislation, pre-use safety checks, controls, power isolation and more) for them to use column lifts safely and efficiently.

The equipment will be supported by a Totalkare ‘AfterKare’ service package that includes two service visits a year and Reports of Thorough Examination.

“We’ve been using Totalkare mobile column lifts for several years and were always impressed with how easy they were to use and the quality of their service support,” said Toney Martin, director at ASM Truck Diagnostics. “Following a sustained period of business growth, an investment in additional equipment was necessary to increase capacity and we’re delighted to add these to our busy workshop.”

Adam Bowser, area sales manager for Totalkare, said: “This is a great example of how the quality of our products, coupled with our customer service expertise, can underpin future business success and we are delighted to be the vehicle lifting partner of choice for ASM Truck Diagnostics.”
