When working in any dangerous field, the expectation for safety is high, and there’s no exception when it comes to the trenchless industry. Trenchless is a type of subsurface construction work that requires few trenches, and negates the need completely for continuous trenches.
Barbco, Inc. is a manufacturer of the world’s most robust ABM’s on the market, equipped with tools to make operation and safety easy to accommodate.
Each ABM that leaves Barbco Inc is available to be equipped with a state of the art, wireless remote for full machine operation. This feature has been a key factor in providing both usability, and safety in almost all situations. The main feature of the wireless remotes is that in any dangerous situation, the operator has the ability to step off of the machine, clear the work area, and continue operation from a safe distance outside of the space. When it comes to efficiency on the jobsite, this feature is huge!
The remote is fully functional with all operations, such as thrust, dogs, RTS, clutch, as well as an emergency stop button,
if the machine needs to be shut down at any moment. The ability to operate a machine from a bird’s eye view is also optimal for safety, should it be a tight work pit.
Not only does this help the contractor be more efficient, technologies such as this are what continue to capture the younger generation and bring them into the trenchless industry!
Safety is a priority for everybody on a jobsite, and it’s a manufacturer’s duty to give them the tools to operate their equipment safely. For more information on Barbco Inc or their equipment, you can visit www.barbco.com.
