Komatsu PC300 excavator ladder access-system steps safeboarder LE01 down

When the operator turns the key off, applies the safety lever, applies the park brake or if the machine looses power, then the SafeBoarder automatically lowers to the ground.

‘L’ Force Geometry also offers the operator additional peace of mind when they attempt to raise the SafeBoarder while another person is either on or holding onto the access system; it will not move. L Force Geometry greatly reduces possible injuries.

This product utilises the hydraulics of the host machine, meaning that there’s no costly power packs that usually require some form of maintenance or replacement over time. Less is more in this access systems case
