TITLE
Engine bay bulkhead light
ARTICLE
At Aggregate Industries’ Buckton Vale Quarry, the absence of suitable lighting for daily inspection checks of oil levels, etc, has been overcome on their rigid dump trucks by the fitting of a small bulkhead light underneath the platform beside the engine cover. This allows both hands to be free, rather than juggling with torches. Power to the light needs to be independent of the ignition, so that the driver may retain the keys until the checks are complete, to prevent accidental starting.
