Punching Above It's Weight

First Look Gen1 Base

Punching Above It’s Weight

Here is the first look at the Gen1 base on our 50t Composite Equipment Support Stand. Scheduled for final compliance testing against AS 2538:2016 Vehicle Support Stands at USQ in October, 2019. Anticipated to pass with a 4 x safety factor based on previous prototype testing. To put that into perspective, it can hold the load equivalent to almost 2 x Caterpillar D11’s per stand. According to CAT’s spec sheet, their operating weight is 105,000kg each.

The manual handling weight is around just 55kg with a height of up to 1200mm. They are bottom heavy, have a large radius and rounded corners which allow the stands to be easily manoeuvred into place. Especially for that last 0.5m or so, that is typically carried out without the aid of a forklift. With a W.W.L. of 50,000kg this product is ideally suited to support machines like the Caterpillar D11 or the KOMATSU 475.
