LIFTING the concrete slabs which make up cable troughing frequently installed alongside railway tracks can be made easier using a scissor-action tool developed by J Muscroft Engineering.

’It grips concrete slabs at each end and allows two operators to lift the slab via handles, enabling operators to keep their backs straight and avoid injury’, explained Managing Director John Muscroft.

The length of the tool is adjusted to suit the size of the concrete slab which is being moved, and clamps lock it firmly into place for lifting.
