It han­dles all you throw at it

Big Rigs - - CONVOY FOR A CIRE -

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.
