The Hurricane Equipment Crafter Bench has been developed specifically to assist truck and bus repair centres who need added platform length to effect truck chassis fixing, plus a taller design for faster repair cycles. The Crafter Bench is a high performance and cost-effective solution for re-shaping and body straightening that is specifically designed for larger light commercial vehicles, around 7 tons, like the Sprinter type of units.

The fully loaded Crafter is delivered with a full set of VW Amarok body clamps plus a set of universal sill clamps and a centre body lift. The package further includes a mechanical measuring stick.

“The extended platform,” says Andrew Mackie, company spokesman, “is a full 7 400m in length which is coupled to one extra wide platform width of 2200mm. This comes with a belt loading facility and two 10-ton tuners plus another huge 15-ton tower that can effect taller cab damage if needed to complete a truck a repair.”

 The flexibility of rigging up exactly the right angle of body straightening pull works for ultimate accuracy. It offers a full 360º pull angle with the combination of the full three tower package. This is combined to give a full 7 000 kg of pulling capacity and worker repair comfort is held at a repair platform height of 500 to 550mm working with up to 8 bar hydraulic pressure. The Crafter offers a new state-of-the-art work repair centre for commercial vehicle rectification.
