• GUS Transport Ltd, which operates a fleet of around 5,000 vehicles from 38 depots nationwide, has introduced the custom-built gantries designed and built by Allen Cranes (Northampton) at four major repair workshops. The company identified the repair of engines, gearboxes and axles as an area for significant improvement.
The Allen mobile gantries have hand-operated chain hoists, and opened up a wider range of repair options. Says sales manager Steve Austen: "Compared to lift trucks, our mobile gantries are economical for simple, repetitive lifting." The gantries, with lifting capacities up to 10 tonnes, are available in standard fixed height, adjustable height and packway models — or madeto-measure.
The company also offers a choice of electric and leveroperated hoists, erection services and an after-care package.
