Material handling manufacturer Diversified Product Development has introduced a folding man basket for loader cranes as part of its Liftwise work platform range.
The 762mm square basket is attached to the loader crane boom or jib tip via a boom nose adapter that is designed specifically for a given crane model and offers a platform capacity of up to 160kg. According to the company, the basket can be removed and folded in less than a minute for onboard stowage and easier transport. Overall dimensions when folded are 1.02 by 1.1 metres with a depth of 483mm, while its overall weight is 104kg.
The folding basket features a grip slotted floor for easy drainage, harness anchor and an inward opening gate. It also meets, or exceeds, north American industry standards such as ASME B30.5, ASME B30.22, ASME B30.23 and CSA Z150.
Diversified offers a number of work at height products including a range of custom and job-specific work platforms which it sells under the Liftwise brand.
