Snap-on Tools Australia and New Zealand has proudly installed three high quality Snap-on hoists in the Erebus Motorsport workshop to assist their team fight for victory in one of the world’s most competitive racing series.

The Erebus Motorsport workshop is a hive of activity year round and required versatile hoists that were up to the significant demands of a professional racing team that operates two Holden Commodore’s in the Supercars Championship.

Already the official Erebus Motorsport tool supplier, Snap-on’s new hoists provide the current Bathurst 1000 winning team technicians the most reliable, safe and versatile hoists on the market, adding efficiency in the continual quest to tweak their racing machinery to perfection in between events.

“Success in our business is all about maximising the ‘1 percenters’ across the board. We already enjoy the benefits of Snap-on tools, so choosing Snap-on as our hoist supplier was an easy decision,” said Barry Ryan, Erebus Motorsport General Manager.

“The new hoists give us the peace of mind and confidence to lift our race machinery day in and day out without worry, so we can concentrate on the tasks that help us stay at the top of our game during race weekends.”

Snap-on’s unique four tonne two post hoist with telescopic arms allow symmetrical or asymmetrical loading either forward or backward, becoming four hoists in one. The front and rear triple stage arms can handle micro cars through to LWB SUV’s and are the perfect hoists for the active Erebus Motorsport workshop. 

“You can see the thought put into the design and quality of the materials and manufacture of the hoists. Being able to load cars forward or backward plays a big role in our ability to successfully juggle the demands of a busy workshop environment, said Damien Allen, Erebus Workshop Manager. 

Ryan Mandelson, Snap-on Tools Marketing Manager was excited to see the Snap-on hoists installed in the Erebus Motorsport workshop.

“We’re proud to be helping Erebus Motorsport with their motorsport program through our new range of Snap-on designed and manufactured hoists. A successful team like Erebus demand the best and Snap-on hoists deliver that with industry leading quality and technology, all through a brand that resonates success across nearly 100 years,” said Mandelson.

Snap-on’s new hoist range adds to a selection of all new Snap-on wheel service equipment, including wheel balancers and tyre changers, the highly requested new equipment ranges offering Australian workshops the opportunity to save time and add profitability to their businesses.  

This incredible new range of Snap-on hoists and wheel service equipment is all backed with an industry leading two year warranty and national service network.
