Take advantage of a FREE JOST Fifth Wheel Function Check!

The most common problems on Fifth Wheel couplings are purely down to a lack of maintenance. This is because fifth wheels are too often regarded as 'fit and forget' items, which is simply not the case. Maintained properly, a fifth wheel will give years of trouble-free service. We are therefore offering our ten-point check free-of-charge to promote this fact and we would encourage as many operators as possible to take advantage of this essential safety service.

Each item is evaluated using a 'traffic light' system, where
green = satisfactory,
amber = advisory and
red = urgent attention required.

The free-of-charge offer is open to all operators having the check carried out at the premises of JOST GB Ltd, Edbro House, Nelson Street BL3 2JJ Bolton, Lancashire. A visiting service is also available, for which a small charge to cover expense is made.
