Raise your manual handling knowledge! Can you afford not to?

Hofmann Megaplan takes the safety of its team and customers very seriously. Especially within the automotive industry where the risks are increased by the weight of the equipment and vehicles, we work around.

Often overlooked is vehicle wheels! These might not be the heaviest item in the garage but daily lifting from heights can cause unseen damage. In fact, the unnecessary impact and stress being put onto your body can be difficult to identify until too late!

As a garage owner, it is best to not risk your own or your team's welfare.

What is manual handling?

Seems a simple question to answer - but can you?

The term manual handling relates to lifting, pushing, pulling, lowering and carrying loads (weight doesn't come into it!).

So, how many times a day do you carry out one or more of these actions?

Potential Implications..

No-one wants to be dealing with an injured employee, particularly if it is a manual handling error.

Some simple policy and the correct equipment can be the difference between a happy employee and avoidable physical injuries to limbs, tendons, heart and, most commonly, the muscles and back.

Not to mention, where there is blame, there is often a claim.

Back, shoulder and neck injuries are very common within the industry and these problems are no joke! Manual handling injuries account for nearly half of all tyre-bay related incidents. (HSA)

5 Reasons you need an Electric Wheel Lifter!

Back problems are no joke! Neither is failure to take care of yourself or your fitters. Lifting tyres takes its toll on the body. So why do it when there is a simple, safe and affordable solution?

Not only can it reduce the risk of injury but it can also boost the productivity of your garage.

Many fitters often overlook this forgotten about piece of garage equipment. However, wheel lifters could be one of the greatest investments you make in 2019! We've customers that have repeat purchased after seeing the difference purchasing one has made.

Stop slowing your service down. Here are the five reasons you need an electric wheel lifter!

1. Wheel Lifting Safety

 An electric wheel lifter offers safety in a number of ways. Used effectively it reduces not only the risk of long term injury but also short term accidents. Wheels are securely locked into the tough grip arms. When working with wheels at height this means no risk of a falling tyre putting a fitter out of action. 

Ensure all removals and movements are safe with minimal risk to your team, workshop and wheels!

​What's incredible about this electric wheel lift is how feature rich it is, yet easy to use. The simple control panel offers quick access to lifting at one of three speeds. Using this simple bit of kit becomes second nature whilst eliminating a lifting job that no one need complete. What's more it takes up hardly any footprint in your garage (the reason many customers order one for each work bay). Increase the height you could lift a wheel manually with ease. Let a machine do the work!

3. Efficiency through Portability and Maneuverability

​Our electric wheel lifter is battery powered making it completely portable and easy to transport around your workshop. Moving and fitting tyres becomes effortless and fast. At a fundamental level this wheel lifter makes you more productive and thus more profitable!

​We have not tried to reinvent the wheel. As with all products that wear the famous "H" logo, you receive the highest quality machine designed to last. This is a solution to issues many fitters just get on with and regret at some stage.

5. You can get a top spec Wheel Lifter at an incredible price!
