Lockout Tagout Safety From Spectrum Industrial

Spectrum Industrial, the experts in identifying, managing and reducing safety risks, has an extensive Lockout Tagout range, designed to control unauthorised or accidental use of machinery. The range of products help to keep working environments safe by preventing accidents.

Used when machinery and equipment is under maintenance or out of order, the products provide a physical method of keeping equipment from being re-energised. There is a device to suit most tool, equipment and machinery applications that will safeguard against unexpected movement, release of stored energy and the flow of gases and fluids.

Once the device is securely fitted by a designated person, a highly visible and durable tagout warning is placed on the equipment being isolated. It attaches securely and provides details of who applied it. Lockout Tagout works together to provide an effective safety solution.

The range of lockout products comprises a variety of devices to effectively lockout almost any equipment; including valves, cables, plugs and switches. Spectrum offers numerous accompanying products including hasps, padlocks, tags, lock boxes, lockout stations and lockout kits that can be used as part of a planned safe system of work.

Little Wonder at Longleat

Everyone knows Longleat for its English stately home, the first opened to the public, and safari park, the first outside Africa. The seat of the Marquess of Bath, Longleat is notable for its Elizabethan country house, set in 9,000 acres, and the parkland landscaped by Capability Brown. The name comes from ‘leat’, an artificial waterway or channel. Dorset based groundscare and agricultural machinery dealers E.G.Coles & Son have been meeting Longleat’s requirements with a range of machinery for many years. The latest product is the Little Wonder electric hedge trimmers, supplied to Longleat’s Head Gardener Jules Curtis and his deputy Darren Johnson.

While the Little Wonders are commercial duty machines they are lightweight and designed for comfort, featuring double reciprocating blades for faster, fatigue-free hedge cutting and sculpting. “Working in the formal gardens we are cutting yew and box, including topiary peacocks,” says Jules, “a lot of it is intricate work and we have a strong preference for the Little Wonder electric hedge trimmers. We can get a much neater cut with electric, altogether a better job. We have been using Little Wonder for many years and find them light and easy to use and of course they are quiet, which means we can carry on with the work even when there are visitors in the gardens.”

All models are CE approved and come with a twelve month commercial warranty.

New options for Classen aerator

Classen has announced the introduction of optional solid tines for the RA21 aerator giving the groundsman the choice of hollow or solid tines, depending on their preference for the type of work being done. The Classen RA21 reciprocating aerator is well known for its abilities to punch clean holes in tough, hardened soil without additional weights. Now the groundsman can choose to solid tine on lawn areas which, say, have a low level of compaction or perhaps need treatment during periods of hot weather. In situations where hollow tine aeration will be more beneficial, lawns more heavily compacted or amenity areas suffering from a lot of wear and tear for example, a longer lasting effect can be achieved. The tines can be quickly and easily changed to suit the work.

The RA21 is the ideal machine for getting air to the roots to promote growth, particularly after long, dry spells and is easy to use and maintain. Controls are simple and the aerator doesn’t use hydraulics to independently drive the tines, covering more turf in less time and with less fatigue for the operator. With core tines it will cover up to 26,000 sq. ft. per hour at 450 reciprocating revolutions per minute. Large, pneumatic tyres give the machine good flotation on turf. It turns much like a walk-behind mower, so there is plenty of maneuverability. For transportation there are lifting and tie-down handles, with a folding handle to save space. With a width of just 80cm the RA21 fits neatly through gates. The machine comes with a two-year professional warranty.

Providing a stable base on a roof, preventing damage to delicate flooring and offering protection against hard and gravelly surfaces, the new ToughBuilt kneepad range from Hyde has it all covered.

Available in a choice of foam or gel, the base of the kneepad features a TRUErgonomic design for a comfortable fit that embraces the natural shape of the knee and upper shin.. The range comprises the Rocker Snapshell cover for rough terrain, Non-Marring with a pliable rubber which won’t mark the floor, and Stabilizer featuring a wide footprint to create a stable kneeling platform and prevent pressure on the ankles.

Completing the new ToughBuilt collection are a range of foam and gel thigh support knee pads, which are perfect for the professional who spends the majority of the day kneeling. Integrated thigh support keeps the knee perfectly centred, whilst the lower platform raises the shin off of the ground to alleviate pressure on the ankles.

A postcard from Grantown-on-Spey

A new Volvo ECR58D reduced swing radius compact excavator is helping to shape an impressive enhancement to the country’s number one Top 100 caravan and holiday site located at picturesque Grantown-on-Spey in the Scottish Highlands.

Far from the hustle and bustle of urban life, a quality, landscaped park with individual plots for touring caravans, campers and static caravans has been evolving over the last 28 years into one of the most popular and successful sites voted for by over 13000 readers of Practical Caravan 2015.

In order to assist in this development, Mr Fleming has purchased a new Volvo ECR58D from Volvo’s recently appointed utility dealer for the north of Scotland – CSM Sales Ltd. “The new six tonne Volvo reduced swing radius machine is ideally sized for the tasks required around Caravan Park which include general maintenance, profiling and landscaping the immediate surroundings and more importantly, preparing the bases for the new permanent abodes.

Operator comfort and excellent access to all the service points have added to John Fleming’s appreciation of the machine; for instance the ECR58D has a comfortable, spacious cab with a wide uncluttered floor. The instrument panel provides operators with at-a-glance monitoring of all key functions and operator fatigue is reduced through easy-grip, high response joystick control levers.

Volvo Construction Equipment Division markets wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, hydraulic excavators, graders, Volvo utility and road machinery products in the U.K.
