We like to think we are dedicated to every installation we carry out. Quite often you’ll see posts on this very blog about installations in most remote of places. This one is no exception! With the products checked and PDI at our Huntington base, the products were loaded ready for our engineer to install at the most northerly tip of the British Isles, Shetland. The customer required a complete tyre changing and alignment setup including, lifting equipment, wheel aligner, tyre changers and finally balancers.
The Shetland island is the UK most northerly group of islands and putting that into perspective their nearest neighbour is Orkney, 50 miles (80km) to the south-west. In fact it’s only 200 miles (320km) away from Norway. It’s a 12 hour ferry ride, something our engineers know all about!
In such remote locations services can be expensive and the customer need to know that their equipment would be well made and stand the test of time, so not to incur any costly call outs.
At the heart of the installation are the two new TSX3000 scissors lifts, recently added to Hofmann Megaplan range. Boasting a lifting capacity of 3 tonnes and minimum height of just 110mm making it great for installations directly to the floor. Their strength and versatility make them ideal in a situation like this.
The fully-automatic megamount 503 Racing is simply fantastic value for money; providing the typical build quality customers have come to expect from a ‘megamount’ model, combined with a versatile specification and highly competitive price tag. A best seller and common sight amongst tyre shops, garages and main dealers across the globe!
Representing great value for money and incredible return on investment, the megaline system 4 is a must for any garage or tyre shop; even those with existing computerised systems would value the megaline as a way of getting measurements quickly for customer checks.
A fairly recent addition to the Hofmann Megaplan range, the megalift 4000-2 lift as a an electro-hydraulic 2 Post lift represents excellent value for money, combining an economic design typical of entry-level lifts, but with the added peace of mind of being a Hofmann Megaplan product with all its associated qualities such as build, reliability, long-term spares availability and reputation.
Finally the megaspin 200-3 was added is just makes perfect sense! Small, and loaded with features normally only associated with ‘top end’ machines. The megaspin 200 is a motorised wheel balancer utilising low speed technology to eliminate the need for a wheel guard, making it an excellent solution for workshops where space is at a premium.
This particular install was sold by Andrew Page where you can get a range of Hofmann Megaplan products.
When space is at a premium, a good 2-post lift will get everything up in the air for you to work on. Hillfield Garage in Hornsley, London took this very approach to set up their tidy little workshop. (Also the colour-scheme looks great!)
The megalift 4000-2 builds on the success of it’s hugely popular predecessor, the megalift 4000, this new model includes additional luxury features such as automatic, electronic safety release, medium and high reach pads as standard fitment, and sill-protectors on the upper part of the lifting arms.
This well priced model is manufactured in the Far East, we feel people should know this. However, unlike most of the lifts at this end of the market, this product is subjected to a European standard for quality control and specification. In basic terms, the megalift 4000-2 cannot be compared to other budget 2 post lifts of dubious brand and origin!

With motorcycles accounting for nearly 4% of all vehicles (ref: https://www.gov.uk/) on the UK roads, catering for them makes great business sense. We were approached Protyre in Carterton to install a motor bike lift to be able to deal with their busy tyre shop. The MCL700DLX is a premium quality lift with integral, slide-away run-up ramp, wheel clamp, moveable tie-down brackets, and a hefty 700kg lifting capacity.
Boasting a no-quibble 2 year warranty, the MCL700DLX is designed for intensive use and features our ultra-reliable electro-hydraulic operation.
We’ve been manufacturing what are widely accepted as the best lifts since 1965 (anyone who remembers the ‘Honda’ or ‘Souriau’ lift of the ’80s will appreciate the quality and longevity). With a class leading 5 year warranty, all of the usual luxury features you’d expect, and a unique drop-down front section to allow front wheel removal, this lift is simply unrivaled in terms of build quality or specification.
