New Lifting Hook improving safety in the field

A new engineering solution delivers a safer and more secure method for lifting G.E.T. in the field.

December 9, 2019

CR engineers have developed an innovative solution to reduce safety risks during routine maintenance of G.E.T and cast lips in the field.

Safely Move Worn GET

The Universal Lifting Solution provides customers with a safer, more secure and quicker method for lifting worn GET during maintenance.

More durable than slings or other improvised lifting devices, the Universal Lifting Solution is specifically designed to improve the handling of worn Quicktips, Adapters and Boxpoints and keep our customers safe.

Universal Application

The Universal Lifting Solution can lift any size of teeth, shrouds, adapters, boxpoint and more by inserting the large section of the hook through the pin hole.

It has a rated load limit of 750kg (1,653lbs) so no GET is out of reach.

Install New GET

It can be used to install new GET by attaching the small hook to the lifting eye included on all new GET castings and automatically locks the latches once attached to ensure safe handling.

The unique engineering solution enables easy removal of the hook from the GET once moved and is quicker than attaching threaded D-shackles.

Our Core Value of Zero Harm

One of CR’s core values is Zero Harm. We’re dedicated to preventing injuries and incidents. Up to 32% of injuries in surface mining are caused by strenuous movement — the Universal Lifting Solution helps prevent flings and drops to avoid thee injuries.

The product is already proving popular across a number of mine sites and looks set to become part of regular site maintenance safety protocols and tool kits.
