Trailer Reversing System With Auto Braking

September 30th, 2014 Comments off

Truck & Trailer Auto Reverse & Braking System Prevents Crash Damage.

A lorry driver making deliveries to Marks & Spencer was left red-faced after tearing down part of a wall.

He became stuck reversing into the back of the Brighton store yesterday morning and struck the wall. When he moved forward again, it collapsed.

Bob Higham, who lives in Regent Hill, where the accident happened, claimed lorries caused numerous accidents in the area’s narrow streets and called for them to be banned from the city centre.

He said: “They don’t always knock walls down but there’s scrapes.

“I think big lorries like this should be banned. They should only allow smaller, fixed wheelbase vehicles in.”

Trailer Reversing System “BackStop” automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a concrete pillar or a person becomes an obstruction, or is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle.

Trailer Reversing System “BackStop” activates when the vehicle is in reverse. Continuously monitoring at a distance up to 3m behind the vehicle, BackStop will automatically apply the brakes if any of the sensors detect an obstacle, leaving sufficient time for a person to move or the vehicle realigned.

Truck & Trailer BackStop can be retro fitted to any rigid truck or trailer by our onsite service engineers.

Poor Truck Maintenance A False Economy

Figures released by VOSA may show a rise in HGV annual test pass rates, but far too many of the lorries and commercial vans in operation in Britain today are below the general roadworthiness expected by VOSA.

That’s the view of Paul Hassall, operations director of Stoke-on-Trent-based commercial vehicle contract hire and fleet management specialist, Prohire Plc.

Hassall comments: “According to VOSA’s latest figures 77.6 per cent of HGVs pass their annual test. The figure is up on previous years, which is encouraging, but it highlights that a sizable minority of vehicles still fail.

He says: “Not undertaking regular vehicle maintenance is a false economy. Quite simply, lorries and vans that are not properly looked-after will break down and fail their MOT. And the cost of repairing a fault is invariably more than that of carrying out an ongoing maintenance regime.

“VOSA is also putting more weight behind its ‘O’ license compliance schemes and any vehicle fleet operators whose vehicles routinely fail their MoT are likely to find their business under close scrutiny.”

Wheel & Tyre Theft is The One Thing You Can’t Afford!

100 Wheels From Trucks Stolen In Feb 2014!!

As recently as February of this year more than 100 wheels from brand new trucks were stolen as part of a targeted and pre-planned raid on Auto Plates UK in Middlesbrough. The stolen wheels were fitted with Bridgestone 623 tyres, which are rare in the UK.

Thieves who have realised that almost any part of a truck – wheels, hubs, side panels, axles, catalytic converters, plastic chairs or the gold in the wiring looms – has a recyclable value.

Anti Siphon Devices Are A Cost Effective Purchase!

Following a 50% rise in fuel theft, police forces are warning people about the risks. Typical of these initiatives is the Kent Police websites fuel theft advice document, which strongly recommends the use of anti-siphon devices as one of the most effective measures to tackle this problem.

AROUND 1,000 litres of diesel have been stolen from a lorry at Gosberton Risegate.
The incident happened sometime between 6.15pm on Thursday and 8.30am on Friday the 6th of October, when thieves entered a commercial compound and siphoned 1000 litres of diesel from a lorry. Spalding Police are requesting anyone with information to ring 01775 722233

“With our anti siphon devices costing as little as £37.00, the forward thinking of fitting a device before £100’s is easily stolen must make sense.” Says Matthew Burke of aide automotive ltd

TP Anti Syph can be fitted to all types of tank: bayonet, screw type & bus /coach.

Truck Manufacturers include, Volvo, MAN, DAF, Iveco, Scania, Renault, Foden, Hino & Mercedes.
