BARRIER LIFT REVIEWS
We use the Barrier Lift daily on all of our barrier jobs. It’s quicker, safer and it works great! In the precast barrier industry when it comes to installing, resetting or removing barrier, the barrier lift can be the most cost effective tool owned by a contracter.
Hoy’s Construction of Waynesburg, PA was tasked with setting up 12’ concrete barricade walls to separate a newly constructed walkway that ran parallel to a vehicular driveway. Back at the company yard, boom truck operator Tim Williamson used a remote control to maneuver a Kenco Barrier Lift onto the necessary wall structures. The lifter had also been fitted with alignment legs, which allowed Tim the ability to position the device onto the wall without assistance. Tim loaded the wall onto his truck, transported them to the nearby job site, and then placed the barrier into its desired position. A ground guide assisted Tim with interlocking the nine walls together. The entire process to set 108 feet of concrete barrier took less than 3 hours.
It has been a easy and pleasant experience doing business with Kenco. Tracy Black was very helpful in leading us to choose the right piece of equipment for our needs. Workers at O’Shea Lumber Company are loading highway barriers of different sizes and weights (mostly in the 7000 pound range). Since we started using the Kenco Barrier Lift, the loading time of the barrier wall has been cut by more than half, and workers feel much safer when performing this operation. Since this is an operation we don’t do all the time, we use a fork lift to move the barriers. With the Barrier Lift attached, the whole process is much easier.
Eagle West Truck and Crane Inc. has the largest concrete barrier installation fleet in British Columbia. Eagle West started placing concrete barriers in 1990 with one truck and pup unit equipped with an articulating crane. Today we have 8 barrier installation trucks with cranes and 7 Super B freight trucks to help deliver the product to the job sites. Thanks to the Kenco KL9000 barrier lifter, handling of the product during installation has greatly improved our efficiency and reduced the damage and scarring caused by other types of clamps. Our operators like the simplicity of the Kenco lifter and that they can pick up a variety of sizes of product without having to make any adjustments to the clamp. Tell your engineers to keep up the good work.
