Advantages of profile track lightweight overhead cranes compared to conventional I-beam overhead cranes:
- Ideal for lifting and moving items around a workshop area
- Designed to suit customer requirements and supplied as components in a kit form
- Can be extended, altered or moved to new locations in order to grow with your business
- Suitable for lifting loads up to 2000kg SWL
- Cross travel bridges can span up to 12m
- Long travel down shop rails can be any length with support centres up to 10m apart
- Can be supported directly from an existing ceiling or from a freestanding steelwork structure (usually a bespoke fabrication to suit the working environment)
- The system can have any number of cross travel bridges
- They can be integrated with overhead conveyors, to utilise your working environment and make best use of your available space
- Lightweight overhead cranes are made from profile track sections. The Niko track profile has tapered edges so that the trolley wheels always run centrally and cannot crab, like conventional cranes
- Trolley wheels have multiple internal bearings enabling them to run very smoothly and require minimal force to push heavy loads
- They can offer very low headroom solutions in order to achieve the greatest possible lifting height within a height restricted area
- Manual or powered variations are available for lifting/lowering, left/right cross travel and forward/reverse long travel

Here we are all set to leave lands end cold and blowy at the moment but soon turns into a heatwave as we move inland. No major problems to report. Everything going swimmingly. Arrived in the midlands for our first overnight stop at 6pm.

7am ready for the off…
Already very hot, looks like it could be another hot day as yesterday. Black viva suffered loss of alternator bolt,but that was the only issue. Cruised up the M6 no traffic hold ups, approaching the lake district scenery getting better as we are leaving industrial England.
Entering Scotland made it to our overnight stop at Stirling weather deteriorated (got worserer) the further into Scotland we got. But the evening turned out to be fine. This section of the journey was plain sailing,we look forward to Tuesday’s change in terrain and more exciting roads.
Tuesday 28th June 2011
Early start from Stirling in bright sunshine . We headed towards Fort William, stopped to take in some of the beautiful scenery . Encountered some technical distractions with the black Viva once resolved allowed us to enjoy not only the scenery but the excellent driving roads. This took us along the shores of Loch Ness where we stopped for a picnic lunch then on up to Inverness and onward to John O’Groats . We made it after an 11 hour day. My green Viva continued to perform well throughout the journey with only a blown fuse. This has been a challenging, but enjoyable, trip and I thank my colleagues Danny, Fred and Paul for their support and camaraderie throughout. ALL we have to do now is get back home, this we will do via Edinburgh and the East coast, in time for the Vauxhall, Bedford and Opel National gathering at Billing Aquadrome next weekend.
Mike & friends
Niko Ltd general manager Mike Stanley is taking part in the Vauxhall Viva Owners Club charity drive from Lands End to John O’Groats.
During the last week in June the Viva owners will be donating their time and fuel expenses to drive the 873 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats, and then on to Billing Aquadrome near Northampton for an after event celebration at the VBOA National Rally on the week end of 2nd and 3rd July.
In the process of celebrating the Viva as a practical everyday classic, the club will be raising money for Whizz-Kidz, a national charity specialising in the mobility needs of disabled young people. Each driver will pursue their own sponsors, while the club is hoping to find the names of some corporate sponsors from the automotive industry whose logos can grace the cars on route and at the Rally.
Mike Stanley says:
“I have been the custodian of the Green Viva in the foreground since 1992 when I rescued it from the scrapman as it had failed the MOT suffering from severe tin-worm (rust). The restoration project was an on-off affair as time, money and family commitments would allow.
I completed all the work myself except for the painting. This was carried out by Carmatics of Kineton. Trim parts do not exist, so I had to learn sewing skills to make a new headlining and vinyl roof cover.
The Viva passed its’ MOT May 2010. I attended 8 rallies/shows up to October with the car winning ‘Best in Class’ on two occasions. However, it was never my intention of just showing the car but to get out and enjoy the experience of driving it as it was meant to be.
The above trip is the first of several long distance runs planned over the next two/three years and hopefully many more will follow. My fellow Viva owner, Danny, who is joining me on this trip suggested we try and raise funds for Whizz-Kidz mobility charity which the club supports.”
Niko Ltd is supporting their general manager in this challenge by donating to the Whizz-Kids charity.
