Hydraulic lifts make Eurobus debut

09 December, 2016

The launch of new hydraulic lifts from Totalkare proved to be one of the highlights of this year's Eurobus 2016, the event for the coach and bus industry held at the NEC in Birmingham. The hydraulic lifts are the first to carry the Totalkare name and generated considerable interest during the show.

Offering both existing and potential customers an even broader range of options, the lifts are now available alongside the company's established electromechanical systems and fixed-post lifts, which were also showcased at the event.

Tim Jackson, managing director of the Halesowen-based firm, commented: "We are delighted at the response to the new lifts at Eurobus, and we have already received a number of orders.

"Hydraulic and electromechanical lifts are equally effective, but we know a lot of workshop managers have a personal preference for one or the other, and the fact we now offer both has been widely welcomed across the coach and bus industry."

Lifting operations controlled from any column

The new lifts can be used in sets of four, six or eight with a capability of 7500kg per column. Lifting operations can be controlled from any column, whilst the adjustable forks have been designed to fit a variety of wheel sizes from 700mm to 1400mm.

Cable-free versions of the new lifts can be charged using an ordinary wall socket, so there's no requirement for three-phase power, and the lack of cables significantly reduces the risk of trips and falls.

Built to last, both cabled and cable-free designs feature an inverted hydraulic cylinder inside the carriage protecting the chrome piston rod, and, for extra peace of mind, like all lifts supplied by Totalkare, the hydraulic models can be covered by the company's AfterKare package of maintenance support.

Since changing its name from SomersTotalkare in 2015, the company has been committed to expanding its range of products and services.

Jackson added: "This latest launch demonstrates this commitment to providing even more choice to the industries we serve, and Eurobus provided the ideal platform for us to showcase our ambition."
