TITLE
Modified return roller bracket
ARTICLE
Described as a “Near Hit”, a return roller weighing 25kg fell approximately 10m to the ground, having worn through the roller’s supporting bracket. Steve Noot, a Plant Fitter at Midland Quarry Products’ Edwin Richards Quarry, came up with the bright idea of modifying the brackets by welding on steel ribs, thus effecting a ‘prevention’ rather than relying on an underslung meshwork or netting ‘cure’.
