Tecalemit Launches New HGV Pit Jacks
Tecalemit Garage Equipment Co Ltd, a UK supplier of MoT and vehicle servicing equipment is set to launch its new range of heavy duty Pit Jacks for the HGV market.
The new SS 8708 Pit Jack is developed to feature a host of safety and operating features: the new model includes a ‘quick-stroke’ device which brings the lift pads rapidly up to the load point. It also benefits from a mechanical safety latching system and mechanically assisted descent. The 15,000 kg Pit Jack has a compact design, and provides a lifting stroke of 310mm.
“The new Pit Jack is compact and versatile, whist benefiting workshops through a whole host of safety features that provide peace of mind in demanding working environments,” claims Phil Cledwyn, Tecalemit Sales Director. “It can be installed into an existing inspection pit or a new pre-fabricated pit; and the flexibility of the carriage means it can be adjusted from 900–1,200mm in order to fit most pits.”
The SS 8708 is suitable for use in commercial vehicle, bus and coach workshops, featuring a range of lifting adapters, extensions and plates to ensure safe and secure lifting.
