Tests weights are industry-standard units for the routine quality testing of material lifting equipment, to Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) quality. They check and ensure the designated safe load limit of equipment is still applicable and safe for use. They also test the safe load limits of unmarked equipment.
Test weights can be used in any commercial and industrial area. They are suitable for use with material shifting equipment, such as forklifts, pallet trucks, hoists, winches, conveyor belts & more. Test weights can also be used to test and calibrate weighing scales and balances and check the force required to activate a lever or switch, such as an emergency stop. They are versatile and ideal for warehouses, factories, construction sites, material yards, and more.
We have cast iron 20kg hand test weights and test weight trolleys available. Our weights are made from high-quality materials for reliability and convenience. Our trolley makes transporting weights easy. They can carry 4 hand test weights and has an 80kg total working weight limit.
From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.
If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.
YOU MUST NOT USE RED DIESEL IN HIRED MACHINES OR EQUIPMENT.
If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
