|Body prop for tipper vehicles
|At Edwin Richards Quarry in the West Midlands, Midland Quarry Products recognised that a problem existed at the “lorry wash station”, when the underneath of the body and chassis of road vehicles were being cleaned, inspected, or worked upon. There was a lack of a suitable body prop, which could be used for all makes, types and sizes of vehicles.
The remedy entailed a steel beam which can be wound across the underside of a vehicle body by a handcranked chain pulley system. The beam is then located onto support steelwork on the other side.
