New man basket from Diversified Products.

Diversified Products, based in Waco, Texas, USA, has introduced its Quick Attach Man Basket for use on service cranes.

The yoke-style basket has a universal mounting bracket for installation on different service crane styles. Diversified Products said the new manbasket provides a much safer option for construction and utility work than using ladders or climbing on equipment. It also extends the versatility of service cranes used in mines, petrochemical plants and a wide variety of other large equipment applications, the company said.

Diversified's steel man basket is designed to offer improved access to equipment and itcan be stored on the service body. The full-sized floor is 30 inches wide by 30 inches deep (760 x 760 mm), and the inward-opening doors are designed to save space, promote easy entry and provide additional worker safety, the company said.

Further safety features are incorporated to help the man baskets meet or exceed ASME standard B30.23 for personnel lifting systems. These features include floor slots to drain water, as well as upset holes to prevent slippage. In addition, each man basket has a low maintenance caliper brake.

Options include a step, a stand for installation on uneven ground or large cranes, and a CSA-approved upper basket enclosure.
