Crouch Recovery raises workshop capacity with raising ramp addition 23 June 2021

Crouch Recovery has expanded its vehicle lifting capabilities at its Leicestershire workshop with the addition of a Y-MECH Lift from Totalkare.

To support the continued repair and maintenance of the fleet, Crouch Recovery identified the need for a permanent vehicle lifting facility in addition to its existing Totalkare mobile column lifts. It needed to have a heavy lifting capacity and sufficient bed length to accommodate the full range of the 70-strong fleet ranging from service vans to light recovery vehicles, heavy duty low loaders, mobile cranes and specialist winching units.

Totalkare was engaged to install a Y-MECH Lift with 35,000kg lifting capacity and 13-metre platforms, complete with extra long approach ramps and jacking beam.

The lift features rollover and roll-back protection and mechanical safety latches to provide maximum safety when a vehicle is raised, and it can be fully galvanised as an outdoor wash bay if required.Platform lengths range from 6-13m, with safe working load capacities ranging between 25,000 and 35,000kg. Maximum lifting height is 1,725mm.

“We’ve been very pleased with the flexibility offered by our cable-free mobile column lifts from Totalkare, but felt we needed to complement these with a permanent vehicle lifting bay to optimise efficiencies in the workshop,” said Adam Crouch, Director at Crouch Recovery.

The Kibworth-based, family-run operator’s fleet of recovery vehicles is instantly recognisable due to Crouch Recovery’s involvement in the terrestrial TV programme ‘Trucking Hell’.
