Book Your Stabiliser Locking Device Inspection or Installation

Carey Pacific is an Approved Inspection Station.

If your VLC was manufactured in 2014 or earlier, Carey Pacific can retrofit a leg-locking safety kit (with an audible alarm in cab) to ensure that your stabiliser legs are securely stowed away.

To minimise your equipment down time, we can fit your leg-locking safety kit at the time of your truck and crane’s annual service.

For VLCs with pre-installed stabiliser locking devices, Carey Pacific can assess the systems state of effectiveness.

Call Carey Pacific on 07 3715 1300 to secure your equipment’s safety compliance.
