Finnies Garage (Isle of Lewis)

Getting your vehicle serviced and tyres changed on the on the Island of Lewis has long been limited but thanks to a lot of hard work and determination, Finnies Garage is now open for business.

This is a brand new company aiming to offer the highest quality of service and hence choose Hofmann-megaplan’s machines to kit out their workshop.  For those not familiar with Lewis, it is the southern part of the Scottish Hebridean island of Lewis and Harris. It’s known for sandy beaches like Luskentyre and Scarista on the west coast, and for rugged mountains in the north. Getting there is ‘no mean feat’, however it was a pleasure for our Service engineer to visit and get them all set up

They are now the proud owner of The megamount 713 ‘leverless’ evolution, megaspin 200-3s wheel balancer and the wall mounted laser alignment system.

Keeping a successful family business running at full speed – Shorts Group Ltd

When you’re a busy family business, running efficiently and having all your vehicles and equipment working at full capacity is vital to keep your clients and customers happy. Any down time, can result in difficult trading conditions, so a investing in machinery you can trust is vital.

With this in mind Shorts Group Ltd have just had two Hofmann machines installed into their garage workshop. A megamount 752 truck tyre changer and the megaspin 200-3s car and van wheel balancer.

The megamount 752 is a heavy duty tyre changer for truck and plant applications. Boasting a rim diameter capability of 14” to 56”, O.D of 2300mm (90.5”), and rim width up to 1065mm (42”), this model is a great ‘all-rounder’ for anything from buses to heavy plant machinery. Again, a 2 speed chuck and portable control unit complete the luxury specification. Available in 1ph or 3ph.

Now boasting 3D fully-automatic data input using our unique I.W.A. technology, the megaspin 200-3 is capable in any environment, regardless of volume. Handling up to 30” rim diameter and a comfortable 70kg in wheel weight, the 200-3 is deceptively high spec’, yet retains its main characteristic of minimising footprint and offering the ‘eco-drive’ low-spin motorised technology.

Founded in 1957 by David Short, Shorts Group started life as Shorts Timber Services with its primary business focussing on tree clearance. The company cleared acres of forest to make way for the construction of the M2 and M4 motorways during the 1960’s. More recently, in 2009 Shorts Agricultural Services were granted a Royal Warrant for the contracting services they supplied to the Queen’s local farms.

It is an accolade Shorts are proud to continue to hold today.

In its continuing commitment to recycling, Shorts opened a second MRF site in Aldershot in 2011 enabling the company to expand its skip hire and waste management services further into North Hampshire and Surrey. Having been based in Ascot for 50 years the company outgrew its former offices and moved to Bracknell in 2014 to allow for further expansion.

Paul Jarrold Tyres (Monmouth)

Paul Jarrold Tyres add to their Hofmann-megaplan equipment.

Installed into their workshop is the megaspin 120 complete with motorbike adaptor kit.

Small is beautiful….
The megaspin 120 represents a massive step forward in wheel balancing technology. For a start, it is the first ‘handspin’ balancer ever to include fully-automatic (3D) data input. This is achieved using traditional 2D input for the diameter and distance via the measuring arm, and revolutionary new software (IWA) for the width.
I.W.A. (Intelligent Width Assessment) calculates the width of the rim by taking into account the 2D settings, wheel mass and typical rim data collated from thousands of assemblies. The result is a balancer with high performance capability, packaged into a small footprint and low investment. For the first time ever, mobile operators, or those garages where space is at a premium, can have a machine that is every bit as good as ‘flagship’ models 5 times the price!
