New Rolls Delivered

Our new rolls have been delivered. Weighing in at 6.7 ton it took quite a bit of effort removing them from the lorry where it was placed behind the cab and the sides couldn’t be removed to access it fully. Our cranes are only rated to 5ton so we had to use a 16 ton fork lift truck to lift it off the bed of the truck whilst the lorry drove away.

The factory door high is very close to the mast height on the fork lift truck so it took 4 of us to ensure the safety of all involved as well as protecting the building and the machine from damage. The lifting slings were made as short as possible to keep the forks as low as possible.

 

It was a relief when the fork lift was into the factory and the final adjustments could be made to get the machine into the right place.

Many thanks to Nathan for his experience and help in making this less stressful than it could have been.
