Globaljig Presented by Chief has introduced the Koala bench. While it has a compact size, it’s versatile enough to handle most of the structural work that comes through a typical collision repair shop – including the center section holding required to repair the latest generation of vehicles. The Koala structural repair bench can be used as an install or work bay lift for easier vehicle teardown and reassembly, sheet metal repair, blueprinting operations, or for structural straightening and holding of parts for replacement.
Koala has a drive-over height of just six inches. It can raise vehicles weighing up to 5,500 lbs. to an ergonomic working height up to five feet, three inches. The removable 10-ton pulling post can be easily mounted anywhere around the Koala frame for 360-degree pulling, and can be shared between multiple benches. Extension plates on Koala’s sill clamps provide increased space between the bench and vehicle, making it easy to position computerized measuring system equipment.
Koala is ideal for working on modern cars that need to be held in multiple locations during the repair. The optional double crossbeam/universal jig system makes Koala the smallest bench on the market to offer eight- to 10-point center section holding, so it can handle even the hardest hit unibody vehicles.
Additional Koala optional accessories include an upper body/suspension measuring system, bench cover plate and a loading ramp package. The Koala repair system can be floor or pit mounted.
