LiftWise introduces Single Man Folding Basket
New basket folds easily in less than a minute
LiftWise has introduced its Single Man Folding Basket for service cranes, a product which provides fall arrest and fall protection while helping to eliminate the need for ladders or climbing on equipment.
Featuring a large open area for increased productivity, the basket has a full-sized floor to accommodate workers and materials. The slotted floor allows water to drain, while the upset holes offer skid resistance. An inward-opening gate provides easy entry into the basket, while minimizing space needed.
The basket is attached to the crane head using an adapter that is specifically built for each customer's make and model of crane. When finished, crews can easily fold the basket in less than a minute. It folds from the working dimensions of 30 x 30 x 42 inches down to 40 x 19 x 45 inches in storage mode.
The Single Man Folding Basket weighs 230 pounds and has a 350-pound capacity. The steel construction of the basket is designed to meet the rigors of contractors and heavy-duty work environments, including utilities, mining and more. It meets or exceeds industry standards ASME B30.5, ASME B30.22, ASME B30.23 and CSA Z150.
