May 19, 2016—Globaljig Presented by Chief introduced Wednesday its new Koala bench. 

The compact bench can be used as an install or work bay lift for vehicle teardown and reassembly, sheet metal repair, blueprinting operations, structural straightening and holding for parts replacement. 

Koala has a drive-over height of 6 inches and can lift vehicles up to 5,500 pounds to 5 feet 3 inches. The 10-ton pulling post can be mounted anywhere around the frame for pulling and can be shared between benches. It can accommodate modern cars that need to be held in multiple locations during the repair. 

“For shops that don’t have a lot of space but do have high enough workflow to warrant an additional bench solution, Koala is a cost-effective investment in improved productivity,” said Bob Holland, director of collision sales in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG).  “Koala has a small footprint and tremendous versatility – it will accommodate about 90 percent of the structural collision repair jobs at most body shops.”
