TITLE
Lifting tool for changing conveyor feed
ARTICLE
Changing conveyor feed drums has always posed manual handling risks at Mouncastle Quarry in Cupar. A lifting tool, fabricated by site personnel using scrap steel, has been the answer. It slides onto the forks on the fork lift truck and lifts the conveyor drum by the drum shaft.
