Blocks manual handling trolley
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

Previously, test blocks of up to 30 kg had to be carried to, and then lifted into, the crusher. A system was required to remove these awkward manoeuvres.

A block manual handling system has been designed to carry and feed concrete blocks into the compressive strength testing crusher. The system is wheeled so that the block can be transported with minimal effort. When the system is in position, the wheels can be locked and the block can be slid into the crusher jaws. This requires
little effort as the block sits on rollers.

BENEFITS

The risk of a manual handling injury associated with feeding concrete blocks into the crusher has been removed totally.
