It handles all you throw at it
LUKE Foster is the sales manager at Inca lifts.
The company had a standout display at Megatrans.
Sitting atop the fully portable hydraulic lift system was a special type of Peterbilt, built to one-third of full size by one of its clients, Rodney of Australian Truck and Trailer Repairs at Dandenong.
Rodney bought a Ford F350 chassis a couple of years back and put 2000 man-hours into turning it into a head turning baby Peterbilt.
Powered by a Ford Cleveland 351 V8 running on nitrous oxide when need be. Marked as a “237”, Rod intends to tow his dragster to the races on a similarly scaled flatbed trailer.
Mean time he loaned it to the Inca boys to use as a head turner on their exhibit. Now to the product. Inca Lift Equipment has been around since 2009, specialising in mobile lifting columns.
Pallet jack style handles allow you to move the columns freely around your workshop, into your wash bays or anywhere else you may choose.
Running with a hydraulic lift cylinder and also a worm drive in the smaller five ton model, the product line ranges from four to six post systems, handling from 20–45 ton.
While the display only had a “toy”, the system will handle any truck or bus you may wish to throw at it.
The company has depots in Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.
