Mobile workshop unit

The mobile mechanical service pit fitted with an elevating work platform (EWP)

Based on the dimensions of a 12m/40ft ISO container, this sealed facility is installed in the ground for drive on application at terrain level. The EWP in the service pit is controlled by hand-held radio transmitter to easily adjust height of platform to suit vehicle undercarriage and technician height. EWP acts as a pit safety cover at terrain level when not in use.

  • Turn-key operation.
  • Readily transportable in 12m/40ft ISO container format.
  • Field ready in 2 days, no formwork or pre-concrete works required.
  • Improves workplace safety, vehicles stay safely on the ground.
  • Sealed sides and base of the facility contains workshop fluid wastes and spills.
  • Low power consumption, powered by site generator.
  • Custom-designed to suit any fleet, including equipment, storage requirements, waste recovery, lubricant dispensing system, customised jacks and lifting equipment.
  • Suction release system for easy ground extraction.
  • Cost effective, long-life asset with ability to re-deploy.
  • Easily stored with equipment contained within the facility when not in use.
