We've got something similar but it's just 2 wheelbarrow wheels I've had half ton beams on it and you can move them on your own and with a little shuffling you can get them in most places

It's powered off that green machine in the back ground and comes as a package that moves the beam across site then the machine lifts it into place quite a neat package if a hiab can't do it
But can't remember it's name

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
used to do the same thing with a pair of 5-20 x 10s on an axle, 'bout 2 ft wide, with a saddle/cradle to sit the beam in .. bowled about easy enough on a flat floor ....... have shifted/installed some steel over the years like it (y);) ... small gantry to get it in the air, then a jacking frame clamped under would put it up tight to a ceiling if needed :)

Unimog U5023 kjetting.jpg


A team of 10 people, led by Matthias Jeschke, has climbed the world's highest active volcano, Ojos del Salado in Chile. And they did so with two Mercedes-Benz Unimog U5023 trucks.

The team was commissioned to deploy four emergency radio transmitters at different camp areas in the mountains. This will make it safer for mountain climbers and scientists in the mountains.


The chains on the rear wheels of one Unimog work poorly on the road, but provide good grip in the steep terrain of rock, gravel, snow and ice on the Ojos del Salado mountain in Chile. Photo: Daimler
After the job was done, the cars in the Amistad camp were at 6,100 meters. Then the team moved on to the next phase, which was to try to set the world record in driving highest over the sea with wheeled vehicles.

One of the two Unimogs reached 6694 meters, which is a new world record, on the mountain measuring 6893 at the highest over the sea. This happened on December 13, 2019.

The two cars had special tires, strong winches, special chassis with adjustable center of gravity and special chains.

The cars were rebuilt by the Unimog Museum, Unimog bodybuilder AS Söder and engineers from Unimog's development team.


These two Unimog U5023s were commissioned to deploy four emergency radio transmitters at high base stations in the Ojos del Salado mountain in Chile. Then they set the world record for wheeled vehicles in the highest altitude. One reached 6694 meters above sea level by winding up under a mountain peak.

i use our engcon cable bucket for exactly that as it reaches right under the conc and gives much better leverage than the digging bucket.

All down to physics and geometry I guess!

that pavement he's just ripped up is 99.9% better than any we have around here :mad: :mad: :cry:
Don't worry that's why he's being so careful, he can sell pavement squares to UK councils at a good rate and there lazy operatives can just bring it on the floor won't even have to strain to pull the starter on the Wacker plate

I’m sure you must all have seen this doing the rounds on Facebook from a Travellodge site that was nearly finished. Owed £600 in wages apparently! There’s about 5 different recordings that have been posted, some from the guys who were working inside as he smashed his way in!:rolleyes:

He got 5 years for that today. Whatever your dispute, smashing the place up isnt worth it.
