Mobile Column Lifts
Totalkare is the UK market leader for mobile column lifts, with a history dating back over 40 years. Mobile column lifts are the ideal solution for heavy duty commercial workshops as, when compared to traditional pits or four post lifts, they provide greater flexibility, improved health and safety, more efficient workshop operations and less capital expenditure.
Four & Two Post Lifts
Four Post lifts from Totalkare are ideal for scenarios where a fixed position for lifting operations is needed, and the flexibility of mobile column lifts is not required. To suit a variety of applications, Totalkare offers both Two Post and Four Post lifts, the latter in a range of options to suit light commercial and heavy duty use.
Increasingly stringent emissions regulations for combustion engines are the main reason for the drive towards high-performance emission measurement tools. Totalkare's diesel smoke meter is an excellent diagnostic tool to ensure proper maintenance of diesel engines for improved fuel economy and protection of the environment.
Headlamp aim is the most common failure item at annual test for both HGVs and PSVs. Ensure your headlamps meet the required standard by investing in a headlamp tester that can check your vehicles before taking them to the test lanes. Totalkare can provide both manual and electronic headlamp testers to accommodate all workshop solutions.
To complement Totalkare’s portfolio of mobile column and fixed post lifts, we also offer a range of ancillary equipment to support the heavy duty lifts within a commercial workshop. Our ancillary items are rigorously tested and designed to provide additional flexibility and safety when it comes to the maintenance of vehicles in a heavy duty workshop.
Rail Depot Equipment
Totalkare's rail depot equipment is used by rail manufacturers and operators in the manufacture, repair and maintenance of rail vehicles. Powered by Emanuel, Totalkare's railway lifting jacks can be used to lift single carriages or complete trains, and are supported by our comprehensive engineer coverage across the UK.
Cable-free Mobile Column Lift
The UK market leading T8DC cable-free mobile column lift is a versatile lifting solution, with each column capable of lifting up to 7,500kg. Usable in configurations of 4, 6 or 8 columns, workshops across the UK benefit from a solution that can lift a wide variety of vehicles, from light commercial vans, buses and coaches, waste & recycling vehicles, heavy goods vehicles, heavy haulage vehicles and more.
7,500kg SWL per column
Ideal for any commercial vehicle ranging from bus and coach through to waste and recycling vehicles.
The lifts can be configured in sets of four, six or eight, allowing for a maximum total lifting capacity of 60,000kg.Find out more
Wireless communication between columns means no interconnecting cables, eradicating health and safety concerns, as well as making manoeuvrability and storage simpler.
Once synchronised, the set can be operated from any column.
No need to purchase separate lifts or additional wheel adaptors for lifting vehicles with smaller wheels. Simply adjust the wheel forks easily by hand as and when required.
Only requires a single phase 230V power supply
Suitable for any workshop, without the need for additional electrical work or installations.
Means total care
The purchase of your heavy duty lifting and testing equipment is just the first stage in the journey of becoming a Totalkare customer. With national breakdown and servicing coverage, we are best equipped for all your maintenance requirements throughout the lifespan of your equipment and beyond. We also provide expert advice which is available on the phone 24 hours a day.
Reports of Thorough Examination
While the requirements of PUWER, which covers proper maintenance and servicing of all workshop equipment covered by our Afterkare packages, are generally well understood, the provisions within LOLER regulations are often overlooked. Our Reports of Thorough Examination are additional to planned maintenance required by PUWER and should be seen as a complete set of requirements for your heavy duty lifting equipment.
Which service package is right for you?
Different workshops have different service requirements depending on its equipment and frequency of usage. Totalkare can offer different service contract options to suit a variety of workshop requirements – our comparison table will help you decide which is the best fit.
Extensive use of mobile column lifts can cause the load bearing components to become heavily worn or even unsafe to use, but this needn’t spell the end for the lifts! We offer a full repair and refurbishment service from our West Midlands base to breathe new life to your lifts.
