Save Pad Wear on Your Barrier Lift

Concrete barrier walls are often stacked to save space in the yard or on delivery trucks. This poses a precarious situation when a worker is tasked with attaching rigging, unstacking each beginning at the top.  This common practice can be dangerous and is 100 percent avoidable by using the Kenco Barrier lift with Alignment Leg accessory. 

This additional option can come pre-installed or bolted on easily anytime. Its two protruding legs hang below the pad angle on one side of the lifter. Their purpose is to catch the wall and quickly line up the lifter. The Alignment leg does all the work in fixing your stacked concrete walls and blocks.

Other notable benefits include:

  1. Extending the life of the pads on the lifter by more than half.
  2. Speeds up the barrier moving sequence. It increases productivity for both novice and skilled machine operators.
  3. Stowable by flipping them up and locking them into place for safe travel or storage.

If you want to keep your workers safe while improving efficiency and saving costs, choose the Alignment Leg option when ordering your Barrier Lift or let our team retrofit your lifter with one today. Watch the Benefits of the Alignment Leg video for details.
