TITLE
Workshop parts cleaner trolley
ARTICLE
The parts cleaner at this site was located within a bund to catch any spillage, but this made it difficult to change over the barrels, and meant that all parts and tools had to be carried from the work area when they needed cleaning.

To improve safety, a cut-off drum was fitted with braked castor wheels to make the cleaner mobile. This enabled the cleaner to be moved to where it was required – removing the need to carry oily and greasy parts and tools across the workshop. The parts cleaner could also now be moved to a safer position to change the barrel with mechanical lifting equipment, reducing the amount of manual handling involved in its maintenance.
