On Lundy Island
Well Automotive Garage Equipment have achieved
the near impossible and done it.
Island maintenance manager Roger was delighted
with their proposal to donate a tyre fitting machine to the island as
he currently has to either ship wheel and tyre assemblies back to the
mainland for changing or change tyres in a rather physical, time consuming
and potentially tyre and wheel damaging procedure. Automotive Garage
Equipment decided to donate one of the last reconditioned machines that
they will do, as costs and the [competitively
priced new machines] they sell are making it uneconomical to do
many more. The machine was completely stripped, shotblasted and re powder
coated by [Redditch
Shotblasting], recognised as one of the best shotblasters and powder
coaters in the country. Machine parts were then reconditioned with worn
parts being replaced. The machine was then re assembled and tested with
a Dunlop Motorsport rally tyre. The machine was then taken to Illfracombe
ready to be placed on the M.S. Oldenburg ready for shipping along the
Bristol Channel into the Atlantic and on to the remote Island of Lundy.
Fortunately for the machine and passengers
it was a fine crossing.
Upon arrival at Lundy the machine was
hoisted off the boat, lowered onto a tractor and taken up the steep
path to Rogers workshop in the small village on the Island.
The machine will now be used by Roger
to maintain the tyres on the islands 2 Landrovers and their fleet of
Automotive Garage Equipment would like to take this opportunity to thank all of their customers over the years that have enabled them to make this donation.
