HYTILE BATTEN TROLLEY
The Hytile Batten Trolley is a popular tool for the “back conscious” roof tiler. Tiles can be transferred from one end of the roof to the other with a minimum of physical effort.
They are particularly useful on long gable roofs, and in today’s market where block sizes are becoming smaller the options for loading a roof from all sides are limited. In these situations, the Hytile Batten Trolley can be a big advantage in speed and energy saving-just load and roll!

Some T.L.C. for your Tilecutter
Does you Tilecutter need a bit of attention?
Drop it and we’ll sharpen the chisel, replace the cutting wheel and give it a bit of grease and oil.
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 the chisel. 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 the cutter wheel when it get blunt.
