Time to tool up!

Railway depots are busy places. Trains arrive through the night, and there is very limited time before they have to be back out on the network again ready for the morning peak period. So the last thing engineers working to tight schedules need is to lose valuable time while searching for a specific tool or tool set. Lost time not only costs money but can add stress to any piece of work.

That is why there is a sound business case for equipping railway maintenance and repair depots with heavy duty, multi-drawer tool storage trolleys designed to take the knocks of daily use.

In many business sectors, including the global aerospace industry, engineering managers and their teams depend on Bahco tool storage trolleys and chests, knowing every tool can be found when it’s needed.

No irritating sorting through toolboxes or bags. No wondering: “Where on earth did I put that torque wrench or insulated screwdriver?”

Fitted drawers in seven colours

Foam inlays within each drawer bring order and organisation to the workplace. Bahco manufactures more than 50 different modules, each one a perfect fit in the trolley. The product range reflects the company’s relentless pursuit of perfection.

Buyers can choose heavy-duty trolleys from two sizes, seven colours and with six, seven, eight or twelve drawers.

When trolleys need moving, Bahco’s ‘lock and go’ system automatically secures the drawers when they are closed, while braked swivel wheels provide stability.

Fully opening drawers, with a load capacity of 45kg per drawer, move quickly and easily on ball bearing slides. Double walled frames enable drawers and slides to work perfectly, even if the frame gets damaged.

So to find the next tool that’s needed, just open the drawer and there it will be.
