RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has purchased Totalkare in-house brake testing equipment for its new Newark site.
The Renault Trucks dealer, which recently acquired four sets of cable-free mobile column lifts from Totalkare (pictured), says the latest purchase means trucks will no longer need to drive to and from a test centre for an outsourced brake test. This will save its customers time, fuel, vehicle wear and tear and the cost of the test itself.
James Daykin at RHCV said: “We currently have Totalkare’s mobile column lifts across a number of our sites and decided to return to Totalkare for testing equipment due to the quality of their products. We are now looking forward to the reduced costs by bringing our brake tests in-house.”
Totalkare’s DVSA-approved mobile brake tester can be used on a wide array of workshop floor surfaces, and can be installed both indoors and outdoors. The standard model can test up to 16,000kg axle loads, while a 20,000kg version is also available. It comes supplied with a tablet that communicates wirelessly with the brake tester, enabling tests to be conducted from the driver’s seat.
