Elgar Coaches upgrades workshop with Totalkare mobile column lifts

A Worcestershire-based coach company has improved its workshop facilities with the purchase of mobile column lifts from experts in workshop equipment, Totalkare.

Family-run Elgar Coaches provides holiday and excursion travel service across the UK, operating and maintaining a fleet of transport vehicles, ranging from midi to full size 55-seater executive coaches.

The operator is a long-term user of Totalkare vehicle lifting equipment, with working legacy models in the workshop including the SVL and RG, which was first manufactured by Totalkare in 1980.

Upgrading to the T8AC lifting system will add greater flexibility Elgar Coaches’ in-house maintenance capabilities due to the adjustable forks (to accommodate a variety of wheel diameters) and the ability to connect the lifts in configurations of 4 or 6 to cover twin or tri-axle coaches.

The T8AC also offers a greater lifting capacity of 7,500kg per column compared to the legacy models.

As with their existing mobile column lifts, the T8AC set will be supported by a comprehensive service contract from Totalkare.
