Totalkare delivers new light commercial lifts to Bedford workshop

Totalkare has supplied three new fixed lifts to Bedford-based UK Truck and Plant Group, improving its light commercial capacity. The new additions include a pair of two post lifts and one light commercial four post lift.

A two post lift from Totalkare is a fixed position lifting solution for all light commercial vehicles. With a range of capacities up to 7,000kg, both two post lifts installed for UK Truck and Plant have a SWL of 5,500kg, ideal for vans with long wheelbases and suitable for other vans, tractors, emergency services vehicles and pick-up trucks.

Lifting from the chassis of the vehicle, a two post lift provides full access to the wheels and underside of the vehicle without the need for support stands.

Intended to require minimal floor space, a two post lift has a baseless, double ā€˜Sā€™ profile and frame free design for maximum stability. Additionally, each column is equipped with its own control unit, providing full flexibility in install location and operation.

Moreover, the four post lift installed in the Bedford facility has a lifting capacity of 6,500kg and a six metre platform, the maximum length in the range.

Differing from the two post lift, a light commercial four post lift can be surface mounted or recessed into the floor to further optimise the use of space. Additionally, it has been fitted with a 2,800kg jacking beam, and ramps at either end, for additional capacity and flexibility.
