Despite an ambitious turnaround time and limited information, we accepted the challenge of supplying five new lift arms for military recovery vehicles to DAF on a turnkey basis. These had to increase the existing trucks’ lifting capacity from 6 to 11 tonnes and their towing capacity from 25 to 100 tonnes, and enable them to recover every kind of military vehicle.
A whole series of tough challenges made this an intensive project, with plenty of weekend working for an expanded team. Our people became regular visitors to the Dutch military testing grounds at Oirschot, as well as lift-arm manufacturer VD Leegte and DAF. With all the targets achieved, everyone involved looks back on this as a highly successful project.
