January 2007

We are delighted to announce a new free standing tipper body prop suitable for use in a workshop environment or in the field.

Weighing less than 18kg each, the prop design has been tested and certified, at a Government approved facility, to carry a safe working load of 3000kg. Each prop is finished in a powder coating finish. The cost for 1 pair of freestanding tipper body props is €490 plus delivery.

Features include:

  1. Universal pivoting head can accommodate longitudinal runners up to 90mm wide across the base, pressed runners up to 70 inclusive angle and x-members up to 175mm wide
  2. Stop plates either side allow pivoting head to tilt up to 45 either way
  3. 2 ergonomic handles positioned either side to allow carrying and positioning of the prop with minimal effort
  4. Pressed base plate suitable for all chassis types

Important Safety Notice

Even though the safe working load of each prop may exceed the weight of a body, it is not sufficient to use only one prop to hold a body up. This method of propping allows side loading of the prop since it is not located centrally under the body. Side loading of a prop can jeopardise the safety of the user.

Body props must be used in pairs and only on empty bodies.
