We have fitted our all-terrain, towing vehicle with a mobile workshop and crane to form a highly versatile base for our on-site operations. The workshop area is well insulated and clients are welcome to use it as a laboratory or storage facility.

The vehicle is a 7.5 tonne Mercedes Unimog  - widely believed to be one of the very best off-road machines. A purpose-built hydraulic circuit that powers a 500Kg rear crane, a 4500Kg front winch and a 5Kw mains generator has been fitted. Welding of stainless and mild steel can be carried out on site and the vehicle also has a supply of compressed air for inflating tyres or fenders.
