The 12'' (30 cm) platform height is ideal for maintenance, modification or repair work and is particularly useful for any work that requires access to the top and underside of the vehicle. It has been specifically designed for rapid low cost production using today's modern machinery, requiring the minimum of labour and minimal use of jigs, fixtures or other special tooling.

No jacking or propping is required, no tools are required and no power supply needed.

The central 'Bridge' unit extends to suit the vehicle wheel-base.
The car stand is highly 'mobile', in that all the components disconnect from each other, for easy transporting in most estate cars / station wagons
