Dennis Eagle has purchased mobile column lifts and DVSA-approved mobile brake testers from Totalkare for use in several of its workshops.

In total it has installed six T8AC column lifts in Merthyr Tydfil, Manchester (Trafford Park), Winsford, Croydon and Ellesmere Port, the latter workshop receiving two sets. Dennis Eagle’s Winsford workshop is also now running a Totalkare mobile brake tester, as are workshops in Portsmouth and Basingstoke.

The T8AC mobile column has a safe working load capacity of 7,500kg per column.  It can be configured in sets of four, six or eight, and features adjustable forks to accommodate varying wheel diameters. The mobile brake tester features bi-directional rollers and can test up to a 16,000kg load per axle.  It comes supplied with a computer, monitor, printer, cabinet and handheld unit which communicates wirelessly with the brake tester, enabling tests to be conducted from the driver’s seat.

“Totalkare is our preferred supplier for all commercial vehicle workshop equipment, not just for the quality of the equipment itself but the calibre of aftersales service we receive,” said Andy Hunt, contract manager at Dennis Eagle UK. “Having equipment that doesn’t let us down is vital when it comes to maximising fleet availability across our contracts – adding lifting and testing capacity in our workshops is a commitment to achieving this.”
