Safe movement of mini digger around quarry site
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

Although the mini digger used at Ghyll Scaur Quarry was fitted with a buggy whip it was not always clearly visible when moving around to the HGV's, dumpers, and loading shovels on site.

A steel frame was fabricated that the mini digger was able to track onto and secure itself using the bucket. The frame can then be picked up by a telehandler and transported anywhere on site that the mini digger is needed.

See additional pdf for images.

BENEFITS

• The telehandler is clearly visible to other vehicles on site
• The mini digger operator can safely transport the mini digger around the site
• The track and roller life of the mini digger will be extended.
