Jescraft spreader beam for stone slabs

jescraft_smb-96_300dpiA new spreader beam by Jescraft makes moving large slabs or heavy bundles around the yard or fabrication shop easier for stone handlers who can now use a forklift to move loads quickly and safely. Designed specially for stone fabricators who need to transport material in and out of buildings or make tight turns in a crowded yard, Jescraft’s spreader beam features fork-access slots that provide a secure way of engaging and lifting the beam with a forklift, which is a more mobile and maneuverable alternative to hoisting with a stationary overhead crane. The beam is also ideal for loading and unloading containers.

 Made for handling stone.

 

Made of heavy-duty steel, the Jescraft spreader beam measures 96 inches
long by 11-1/2 inches high and has a maximum load capacity of 10,000
pounds. The beam accommodates slings or straps up to five inches wide,
which can be positioned and secured on the bar in one of the multiple
slot positions. When not in use, the beam rests stably on its two feet, which also aid in settling it on the ground. Designed for
lifting with an overhead crane as well as forklift, the spreader beam
features a reinforced 1-1/4-inch-thick swivel hook attachment point at
the peak of the bar.
