A Georgia School District encountered a lift malfunction in the transportation
service department during a weekend when employees were not present.
The customer reported that a short in the control box caused one side of the
lift to raise which led to a bus being raised 3 feet before tipping over and landing
on two Shure benches, a ShureShop® Workbench and a Tear Down Bench.
These two Shure benches together caught the 26,000 lb. bus and kept it from
completely falling to its side and causing additional damage. “If a bus falls onto
the concrete floor and the roof supports are bent or destroyed, the bus is
considered totaled. Your benches saved us from buying a new bus, which is
around $90,000. We will definitely be ordering more of your benches!”
“It was amazing to see your benches hold the 26,000lb. bus for almost 36 hours.”
