CROUCH RECOVERY HAS EXPANDED THE VEHICLE LIFTING CAPABILITIES OF ITS LEICESTERSHIRE SITE WITH THE ADDITION OF A Y-MECH LIFT FROM TOTALKARE
Fast-growing family firm Crouch Recovery has raised the vehicle lifting capacity of its Leicestershire workshop with a new Y-MECH Lift from Totalkare.
The fixed lift, which has a 35,000kg lifting capacity and 13-metre platforms with extra-long approach ramps and jacking beam, will be used by the Kibworth-based company to complement its existing Totalkare mobile column lifts, and will help service and repair its fleet of more than 70 heavy and light recovery vehicles. It features rollover and roll-back protection and mechanical safety latches to provide maximum safety when a vehicle is raised.
The Crouch fleet includes service vans, light recovery vehicles, heavy-duty lowloaders, mobile cranes and specialist winching units, and has become widely recognised thanks to its involvement in the terrestrial TV programme ‘Trucking Hell’.
“We’ve been very pleased with the flexibility offered by our cable-free mobile column lifts from Totalkare, but felt we needed to complement these with a permanent vehicle lifting bay to optimise efficiencies in the workshop,” said Adam Crouch, director at Crouch Recovery. “Totalkare’s new Y-MECH Lift is ideal for this – it can lift our full fleet of vehicles thanks to the long platform length and load capacity and we’re already seeing the benefits of this installation.”
“It’s a pleasure to continue supporting Crouch Recovery as the business goes from strength to strength,” added Adam Bowser, sales director at Totalkare. “Alongside our T8DC cable-free mobile column lifts, the Y-MECH Lift really does give Adam and the team the best of both worlds in terms of vehicle lifting capability and with our comprehensive service package they also get full peace of mind.”
Y-MECH Lifts can be fully galvanised for use in outdoor wash bays. They are available with platform lengths of 6-13m and with safe working loads capacities of 25,000-35,000kg.
