New Lift at Public Works

How many mechanics does it take to lift a garbage truck 6 feet into the air? Now. . . only one, with the help of Public Work’s new big truck lift. The much anticipated addition to the shop was installed last week and is already earning its keep. It can lift up to 40,000 pounds which includes almost any piece of city equipment and has the option of raising just a section at a time to make tire removal easier. The lift will greatly enhance mechanic productivity in performing preventative maintenance and other major repairs to fleet equipment.
