TITLE
Changing bucket toe-plate
ARTICLE
At Park Farm Quarry (Tarmac Southern, Bury St. Edmunds), the manual handling risks involved in changing a toe-plate have been substantially reduced, principally by the purchase of a torque multiplier (10:1 gearing) and the fabrication of a stand to support the toe-plate at waist height.
