We like to think we are dedicated to every installation we carry out. Quite often you’ll see posts on this very blog about installations in most remote of places. This one is no exception! With the products checked and PDI at our Huntington base, the products were loaded ready for our engineer to install at the most northerly tip of the British Isles, Shetland. The customer required a complete tyre changing and alignment setup including, lifting equipment, wheel aligner, tyre changers and finally balancers.
The Shetland island is the UK most northerly group of islands and putting that into perspective their nearest neighbour is Orkney, 50 miles (80km) to the south-west. In fact it’s only 200 miles (320km) away from Norway. It’s a 12 hour ferry ride, something our engineers know all about!
In such remote locations services can be expensive and the customer need to know that their equipment would be well made and stand the test of time, so not to incur any costly call outs.
At the heart of the installation are the two new TSX3000 scissors lifts, recently added to Hofmann Megaplan range. Boasting a lifting capacity of 3 tonnes and minimum height of just 110mm making it great for installations directly to the floor. Their strength and versatility make them ideal in a situation like this.
The fully-automatic megamount 503 Racing is simply fantastic value for money; providing the typical build quality customers have come to expect from a ‘megamount’ model, combined with a versatile specification and highly competitive price tag. A best seller and common sight amongst tyre shops, garages and main dealers across the globe!
Representing great value for money and incredible return on investment, the megaline system 4 is a must for any garage or tyre shop; even those with existing computerised systems would value the megaline as a way of getting measurements quickly for customer checks.
A fairly recent addition to the Hofmann Megaplan range, the megalift 4000-2 lift as a an electro-hydraulic 2 Post lift represents excellent value for money, combining an economic design typical of entry-level lifts, but with the added peace of mind of being a Hofmann Megaplan product with all its associated qualities such as build, reliability, long-term spares availability and reputation.
Finally the megaspin 200-3 was added is just makes perfect sense! Small, and loaded with features normally only associated with ‘top end’ machines. The megaspin 200 is a motorised wheel balancer utilising low speed technology to eliminate the need for a wheel guard, making it an excellent solution for workshops where space is at a premium.
This particular install was sold by Andrew Page where you can get a range of Hofmann Megaplan products.
Following another successful year at the Commercial Vehicle show where we had lots of fun demonstrating our latest commercial vehicle equipment. On product on show was ‘the beast’ – megamount 352 tyre changer for large wheels.

For fleet and rental companies, the number of sets of tyres that need changing may not be significant, in comparison to some full time garages, but the requirement can make significant savings. Northgate Vehicle Rental in Norwich had a requirement to change the tyres of returning vehicles but wanted a tyre changer with great functionality but with a price tag that justified the investment – The Ecomount 22 plus fitted that bill to the letter.
To help with the range of tyres Northgate needed change Hofmann Megaplan installed the simple but very effective Ecomount 22 plus with assist arms. The Ecomount is cost effective, fully-automatic tyre changer designed for use in garages usually that deal with lower volume situations – like rental or anybody looking for a well-priced unit capable of handling difficult tyres such as run-flat and ultra-low-profile.
Unlike other ‘budget’ models, the eco series from Hofmann Megaplan is designed to meet the price of those customers whose low volume dictates the need for a realistically priced unit, without compromising on reliability and long term support.
In with the new…..

No building is to big or trailer to small, we will always be able to do the install….
With a limited amount of space and just one operator, dancing around a tyre changer was not the ideal solution for Discount Tyres (Kent). So a Megamount 303R seemed like just the ideal solution.
The megamount 303 Racing is a semi-automatic, space saving, high performance tyre changer designed for extreme/intensive use. Which it most certainly gets from Discount Tyres. Unlike discount ‘swing-arm’ machines, which are generally designed to meet a price point and not a quality standard, the megamount 303 is built for those customers who need a machine capable of handling the toughest rim & tyre combinations, but who don’t have the space for a typical high-performance machine.
Boasting 10” to 24” clamping (22” external) and extra-tall turret to cater for wide rims, the megamount 303 incorporates our unique ‘megafit pro-duo Lite’ robotic arm system to handle run-flats and low-profile tyres all from a 12v format, ideal for a mobile operation like this.
