Truck and Track Autumn 2023

Truck and Track Autumn 2023 64 WORKSHOP EQUIPMENT Municipal vehicle supplier, Elite Refuse, has upgraded its workshop to include a new set of mobile column lifts from the workshop equipment experts Totalkare. Based in Nottinghamshire, Elite Refuse are specialists in the sale, hire and maintenance of waste and recycling vehicles and related parts. With a commitment to fit out the service workshop with up to date equipment, Elite refuse has exchanged its legacy Totalkare lifts for a set of T8AC cabled mobile column lifts. Taken as a set of six, the T8 range of mobile column lifts can be configured as four, six or eight columns, depending on the requirements. Each pair is capable of lifting 15,000kg across each axle, making a set of six suitable for most refuse and waste vehicles. The inverted hydraulic cylinder lifting system can be easily moved into place and controlled from any column, connecting via cables for a quick mobile lifting solution. To accompany the new mobile column lifts, Elite Refuse purchase a pair of tall axle stands. Axle stands have a capacity of 7,500kg to support the vehicle whilst raised. They can either be used as additional safety for when working under a vehicle (although not required) or temporarily when removing a single column in order to access or change the wheel of a lifted vehicle. Mauricio Smelt, Managing Director of Elite Refuse Ltd, commented: “In our service and repair workshop we deal with municipal vehicles of all sizes so a set of six mobile column lifts suited our requirements. Dealing with Totalkare is effortless and we will continue to return when we have future workshop equipment requirements.” Jack Longstaff, Area Sales Manager at Totalkare, said: “We work closely with many customers in the waste management sector and were delighted when Elite Refuse returned to Totalkare to upgrade its legacy mobile column lifts to our newest model.” Elite Refuse returns to Totalkare to upgrade mobile column lifts
