A Kettering vehicle recovery operator has upgraded its operational capabilities by replacing its ageing mobile column lifts with a brand-new set of T8DC mobile column lifts from workshop equipment experts Totalkare. The set of lifts will work alongside their current set-up of an existing set of T8DC lifts, an electro-hydraulic two post lift, heavy duty four post lift, diesel smoke meter, and a headlamp tester, all previously provided by Totalkare.
K2 Recovery offers vehicle recovery and repairs for all sizes of vehicle from its two depots in Kettering and will soon be opening a third in Northampton. In addition, they provide a full national breakdown and recovery service.
The mobile column lift from Totalkare is a versatile lifting solution, boasting a lifting capacity of up to 7,500kg per column. K2 Recovery has opted for a configuration of four columns to cater to a wide variety of vehicles, including light commercial vans, buses, coaches, waste & recycling vehicles, heavy goods vehicles, and heavy haulage vehicles.
Totalkare’s T8DC column lift is cable-free, eliminating the risk of accidents related to interconnecting cables in the workshop. The lifts can be easily manoeuvred around the workspace, making them ideal for commercial vehicles, buses, coaches, skip loaders, waste & recycling vehicles, and more. Charging is simple with the T8DC requiring only a 230V wall socket. With adjustable forks for lifting vehicles with smaller wheels, these lifts can be configured in up to 8 columns to suit diverse requirements.
In addition to the cable-free design, the T8DC mobile column lifts also feature an inverted hydraulic cylinder lifting system, radio synchronisation and communication between columns, and a substantial number of lifting cycles between charges. The adjustable wheel forks accommodate different sizes ranging from 700mm to 1,400mm in diameter.
Jordan Fern, workshop manager from K2 Recovery, shared his thoughts on the upgrade, “At K2 Recovery, we constantly seek ways to improve our services and operations. Totalkare’s T8DC mobile column lifts will be instrumental in boosting our productivity.”
Jack Longstaff, Area Sales Manager for Totalkare stated “I’m thrilled at K2 Recovery’s recent purchase of the T8DC mobile column lifts, and it’s a testament to the trust they’ve placed in Totalkare. Their continued confidence in our products is particularly pleasing and we’re excited about what the future holds for our collaboration and the opportunities it presents for both our companies.”
