What kind of Self-Retracting Lifelines should be used?
We recommend a minimum of 30’ SRLs for use with the 1240 model and either 30’ or 50’ units for the 1250. These should be ANSI Class B rated SRLs with an average arresting force of 900 lbs. or less. We offer a metal housed 30’ unit in the Razorback™ C8001 or a composite housed unit in the Warthog™ C7001. Our 50’ unit is the Warthog™ C7002 – also a composite housed unit. Please always consider a rescue plan though, and take note of our R1000 rescue and confined space package which includes a 3-way self-retracting rescue devices.
Does the mast swivel, and how do I position the unit?
With Friction Drive Mobility Package (M1000) the entire unit will not only rotate 360°, but it can be safely positioned for final use in tight spaces. This can be accomplished with the mast in any position – raised or lowered.
Does the need a license plate?
It depends upon the state. The mobile fall unit is not a trailer, but rather a towable piece of equipment that is classified the same as a generator or log splitter. You must check with your local department of transportation for clarification.
Can it be lifted via forklift or crane?
Yes. The units are equipped with two forklift pockets as well as four crane bail mounts. The crane bail mounts have been designed per the 13th Edition of AISC “Steel Construction Manual” for the ease of crane picks and loading.
