With an impressive reach of 3 metres high, the all new self-propelled lift assist (LA) stand can take the existing benefits of the LA40’s reduced manual handling, postural benefits, hand protection and fatigue reduction into the tyre bay and beyond, enabling fitters to use it for wheel, tyre, rim and suspension maintenance on even the biggest of machines.
Attach your LA40 arm quickly and easily to the versatile mounting plate. As the LA system grows, additional options will attach via the same mounting plate.
The LA stand is forkliftable for superior mobility and versatility. It features a stand on base for fine adjustment into position and has been specifically made short at the front to fit a personnel access stand between it and the wheel.
The LA stand’s pendant controller features a 5 metre cable enabling operators to adjust the height of the mast whilst remaining on a personnel access platform. The control selector allows the operator to select whether they will be operating the LA stand from the pendant controller or the control console.
One advocate of the LA system is Bengalla mine’s tyre supervisor, Peter Santarossa.
“The LA system will assist us in reducing hand injuries as well as back and shoulder issues long term,” Santarossa said.
“The tyre technician has a far reduced need, if at all to place their hands near any pinch or crushing points in the rim and wheelbase when using rattling or torqueing equipment.”
