Spitzlift Crane for Vans

 

The SpitzLift 3-foot fold down crane is the ideal lifting solution for vans and enclosed service vehicles. Here’s why:
  • when not in use the crane stores neatly out of the way to maximize workflow (takes up less than 12″ of cargo space)
  • user-friendly design allows for simple set up to the operational and fold-down positions
  • easily spec’ed in with shelving units or other accessory items
  • adds less than 100 lbs. of payload to the vehicle
  • robust 650 lb. load capacity
Our standard 3-foot crane is also a great option should you not need the fold-down feature. Our standard cranes have a load capacity of up to 1,000 lbs. When not in use, the crane can be conveniently folded and stowed away in a SpitzLift carrying case. Every SpitzLift is load tested, comes with a load test certification, and meets ASME & OSHA standards. Carrying case sold separately. Hardware kits are OEM specific for easy installation. Call a SpitzLift application expert to find the perfect solution for your service van.

Tongue Weight Safety Demonstration


Proper trailer tongue weight improves the vehicle and trailer towing experience by improving performance. Not enough tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball causes an increase in trailer sway from side to side, making it difficult to control. Conversely, too much tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball could overload the rear tires of the towing vehicle, pushing the rear end of the vehicle around. This could also negatively affect the vehicle handling. Performance is impaired as you might not be able to go around corners and curves properly, and your vehicle may not stop quickly enough when you press the brake pedal. The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch effectively measures the tongue weight of your towing load, improving the vehicle tow load balance and performance.

Winter Tire Test: Some Treads Are Better Than Others



By Bruce W. Smith

Every so often I find myself checking out the tires of the vehicles around me when stopped in traffic, wondering how this or that one performs compared to the factory tires on my pickup truck. My questions become even more pointed in winter: Should I invest in a set of winter tires? Would mud tires be a good choice or all-terrain? Would it be worth the investment to buy a dedicated snow tire and run them half the year?

To find out, we went to the snow-covered hills just a few miles outside Steamboat Springs, Colo. Carved into the deep snow were three perfectly groomed snow courses with big berms and a variety of twists, turns and elevation changes. These tracks are the training grounds for the Bridgestone Winter Driving School. They also serve as the perfect location to test tires — and for us to see how popular pickup tire tread patterns compare when pitted against each other under controlled winter driving conditions.

And even though it's spring, the information we're offering here should help you decide what kind of tires you want next winter.

The Contenders
We spent two days this past winter with Woody Rogers and T.J. Campbell, product information specialists for Tire Rack, comparing popular 275/65R18 tires on a twisting, curving half-mile section of track three behind the wheel of two identical 2016 Ford F-150 4x4s. The tire comparison contenders were:

  • Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT OWL SL (P-metric)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 SL (P-metric)
  • Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT LT (E load range)
  • BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 RWL LT (C load range)
  • Firestone Destination MT LT (E load range)

Nissan TITAN XT Breaks the Light Duty SnowPlow Barrier

Plow More Snow in Less Time with a TITAN XD!



This Titan was spotted on a Nissan dealers lot in Maine. I stopped to check out the 8 foot Fisher SnowPlow blade on this pickup.



This is the first pickup in its class that will support the use of a Heavy Duty SnowPlow blade. Further research shows that this Titan XD with the 4900 Lb front end rating could accept a heavy Duty snowplow up to 9 feet in length.  Boss SnowPlows will allow up to a 9.2 FT V-Blade on this pickup chassis

This is very significant, many of the other "domestic" pickups in this class will only allow a 7 1/2 foot plow because of their lower vehicle front weight ratings. This Titan will plow more snow in less time than competitive products

Note that the Nissan Titan is manufactured in the USA in Mississippi.
