Back Buddy II cuts risk of workplace injury
Nov 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Safe Shop Tools Inc makes the Back Buddy II, which is designed to roll under and bolt onto heavy brake drum and hub assemblies, then roll out and lay over for easy servicing. The tool handles up to 350 pounds, increases productivity, and prevents back injuries.
Back Buddy II comes with a choice of 11 different sets of adapters, which allow it to fit inboard or outboard hubs on Class 5-8 tractors and trailers. The tool fits vehicles in both private and government fleets, including Humvees and a range of other military vehicles. It works not only on trucks, but also specialized vehicles such as large forklifts. In fact, the tool's adapter system allows it to keep pace with new wheel design.
This tool has a handle that swings down on a hinge, allowing technicians to wheel it into the tight spaces created by lower fenders. Back Buddy II also has a precision ratchet jack that can crank loads smoothly up or down 14" at a rate of up to 3" per second.
