Dennis Eagle invests in TotalKare mobile column lifts

Published:  21 December, 2017

Warwick-based RCV manufacturer Dennis Eagle has bought three new sets of T8DC cable-free mobile column lifts from heavy-duty vehicle lifting specialist TotalKare.

The Dennis Eagle production line turns out up to 24 vehicles a week at its factory and the new lifts from TotalKare are being used in the PDI area at the end of the production line where quality inspections are carried out before vehicles are despatched to customers.

The lifts are in constant use with a new vehicle entering the PDI area every one and a half hours to be inspected.

Duncan Curtlin, manufacturing quality manager at Dennis Eagle, says the new cable-free lifts are ideal for the production line because they are so manoeuvrable and their cable-free technology eliminate trip hazards.

The adjustable wheel forks allow the company to lift vehicles of all sizes coming off the production line which speeds up operations and allows full access to vehicles for pre-despatch inspections.

The T8DC lifts from TotalKare have a lifting capacity of 7,500kg per column and can be used in sets of four, six or eight as required. Their full compatibility with each other offers users true flexibility.

Duncan Curtlin said: ‘Our past experience with TotalKare – offering us great service levels and an all-inclusive lease hire package – made it a simple choice for us to choose them as the supplier of our mobile column lifts. The process was straightforward from beginning to end.’

Brian Young, national account manager at TotalKare, said: ‘We are seeing more and more of our customers choosing a lease hire option when investing in capital equipment. Lease hire allows customers to know their monthly costs for the next five years with no worry of unexpected bills coming into the business and the option of purchasing or replacing the lifts with new equipment at the end of the contract.’
