The French SME has developed a manual handling shovel to extract materials from narrow spaces or to clean the foundations of electric pylons.
Narrow places like sewer manholes, storm sewers, wells, septic tanks, concrete drainage pipes… can clog if they are not cleaned regularly, which can lead to overflows, floods…
The foundations of pylons (electric, telephone and others) need to be cleaned before placing them: removing dust and stone will prevent the misplacement of the pylon.
The manual handling shovel is suitable for both of these applications.
The shovel is made of two scoops, an elongated handle to be grasped by the operator and a control system with an actuator and a brake.
- Scoops capacity: 3.8 litres
- Shovel length: up to 3 meters (higher length upon request)
- Tool weight: 7.8 kg – 8.8 kg
- Materials used: Aluminium (chassis and handle) and Creusabro (scoops)
Licensing to companies manufacturing handling tools for civil works is sought. Patent assignment could also be considered.
