TotalKare lifting solution for CMG Rescue02 August 2019

Newport Pagnell-based CMG Rescue, which operates a range of light and heavy breakdown recovery vehicles, with 75 tracked assistance vehicles available at a moment’s notice and a transport and logistics operations that runs more than 30 trucks and trailers across the UK and Europe, has installed a mobile column lift solution from TotalKare.

Keeping these vehicles maintained is an ongoing challenge and to ease this issue, CMG Rescue turned to TotalKare to install a set of eight cable-free T8DC mobile column lifts, along with supporting workshop equipment, including a transmission jack, trailer beam and axle support stands.

Each column on the T8DC is capable of lifting up to 7,500kg. Usable in configurations of four, six or eight columns, CMG Rescue now benefits from a solution that can lift all vehicles in its fleet, from light commercial vans to its 38-tonne heavy recovery vehicles.

Adjustable forks mean a wide range of wheel diameters can be accommodated and its cable-free nature means the risk of slips, trips and falls in the workshop are reduced. Use of a trailer beam in conjunction with the T8DC enables trailers to be raised for maintenance, while the transmission jack is ideal for handling gearboxes and engines, especially when removing units, via the underside of a vehicle, is the only option.

Sean Warren, fleet manager at CMG Rescue, says: “We spoke to several suppliers after initially making contact at the Commercial Vehicle Show in 2017. TotalKare was the only company who remained in touch from the initial enquiry through to order placement - its enthusiasm to develop a positive working relationship with us was a big factor in our final decision.”

TotalKare will be supporting the lift installation with an ‘AfterKare’ service package, including two service visits per year and Reports of Thorough Examination.
