TITLE  
Transporter for gas bottles
ARTICLE
The fitting department at Chipping Sodbury Quarry has designed and fabricated a transporter that makes handling heavy gas bottles a far safer process. A trailer with a winch at the rear lifts the bottles from ground level on a base plate that can be fixed in position. The design incorporates a holster to prevent the gas nozzles being damaged during transit, a bracket to store a fire extinguisher and protruding brackets to keep the hoses neatly stored.
