Crawler Scaffolding Device Now Available In Canada
Crawler announces the new availability of The Crawler Scaffold Moving Device in the Canadian marketplace. The Crawler is a tool that will dramatically change the way users of utility scaffolds complete their work. The Crawler will safely move a scaffold while the worker remains on the scaffold, allowing more work to be completed, while increasing the safety of the worker.
The Crawler is an OSHA and OHS provinces and territories* compliant device that fits on any brand of “baker” style scaffolding that powerfully and safely moves the scaffold across an indoor work surface. The Crawler allows a scaffold worker to remain on the scaffold when moving it, eliminating the tiring, time-wasting and dangerously repetitious mounting and dismounting. It is powered by any of seven major brands of cordless drills. Depending upon the drill, The Crawler will run from 1,200 to 2,450 linear feet per battery charge.
At about 100 lbs., the steel and stainless-steel construction is a serious piece of equipment, but The Crawler can be easily carried and mounted on a scaffold by one man. It consists of two, easy-on, easy-off attachment points that make it convenient and easy to use. The Crawler’s telescopic drive shaft compresses to 79” to fit into an elevator and a man-door, and can be extended up to 118” to allow operation from a 7’+ platform height.
