Torqer recently redesigned and expanded its RollaBench line of mobile maintenance and repair shops. The RollaBench was conceived with the idea that it is often more practical to take the shop to the job than take the job to the shop. The device is easy to manually push or pull — an effort of 8 lbs. is required for each 2,000 lbs. That makes it practical to move 2,000 pounds or more of tools, equipment, parts and supplies up to the job site. The RollaBench is made of all steel, welded construction. Models are available with 5 to 17 lockable drawers and lockable cupboard areas. All models have a 27" wide and 54" long heavy steel top workbench surface. For more information call (216) 761-6400, or toll free (800) 809-2330.
