Re: Crank Up Scaffolding


Crank up scaffolding has become obsolete for the most part. It still has its uses, but hydraulic mast climbers are becoming the norm now. The company I work for has a lot of crank up just sitting around rusting away.

For 99% of what you would use crank scaffolding for a scissor lift would not do any good. I am picturing 8 bricklayers in 8 scissor lifts all working the same line Where to the laborers stand?

Re: Crank Up Scaffolding


It's funny how I was thinking the same thing.

Seriously, the crank up stuff would work for me in residential, even if the project is really chopped up. I haven't made it a priority to find some, but if there is a stack of good crank up sitting unappreciated, I could find a home where it would be given the TLC it deserves.

Re: Crank Up Scaffolding


I could find out if they are interested in getting rid of any of it. I know they won't give it away since they could just scrap it and get some money. But I can't imagine they would want much for it compared to new or even used. I think the money in hauling it might not make it worth your while though.

Re: Crank Up Scaffolding


Question-How do you load the boards? It doesn't look like you have enough room for a labia in the back to unload from forks?

Re: Crank Up Scaffolding


There are 3 labors plank and 2 stock plank plus the cut plank.
It can get a little tight with a cube of brick but its manageable.
