“BLOODY BRILLIANT” SNAP-CONNECTOR
“That snap-connector is bloody brilliant!”
Dean Martin (referring to the new addition to his Cable Hoist which does away with nuts and bolts, and allows his machine to just snap into place when un-folded). Assembling your Cable Hoist couldn’t be easier. The new snap-together feature does away with the bother of lost bolts, and makes assembly quicker and easier than ever before. Just unfold, and your Cable Hoist will snap firmly into place, ready for use. This enhancement can also be fitted to older model machines.
NEW MODEL CABLE HOIST TROLLEY
Easier tensioning and longer life for your wire rope. Tensioning the wire rope on a new Cable Hoist Trolley couldn’t be easier. No more fiddling around with a bulldog clamp, you set up your wirerope only once for the life of the cable, adding tension with the quick twist of a dial.
Another good idea from one of our customers.
For more secure pointing adhesion, simply run the Ridge Raker along the underside of a freshly bedded line of ridge capping prior to pointing up.

A LITTLE T.L.C. FOR YOUR TILECUTTER
Does your Tilecutter need a bit of attention?
Drop it in and we’ll sharpen the chisel, replace the cutting wheel and give it a bit of grease and oil. And if the cutting action is a little sloppy, we can rectify this with oversize link bolts. You’ll really notice the difference.
Doing the job yourself? When the gap between the chisel and cutter wheel widens with use, sharpen your chisel, but don’t just slide the chisel down and nip up the grub screw – it will pop back up with the first cut. Instead, pack some small washers under the base of the chisel. Replace your cutter wheel when it gets blunt.
INVEST IN YOUR BUSINESS – LEASE A NEW HOIST OR ELEVATOR

Financing new equipment might be just the solution you need. Whether you’re local or interstate, give us
a call on (03) 9725 4488 and we’ll provide you with all the information you need.
