Moving Stone Slabs is Faster and Safer with New Spreader Beam by Jescraft
Bogota, N.J. -- A 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 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 5 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.
