Industrial elevating graders are attachments that are used to move material up or down a slope. They come in different sizes and can be attached to a variety of equipment, including forklifts, backhoes, and bulldozers. They are often used to transport materials on construction sites or to move earth during land reclamation.
The main purpose of an industrial elevating grader is to elevate the material so that it can be transported to a higher location. They work by moving the material along a track using small metal drums or buckets. The drums or buckets are attached to the grader via an elevated arm. As the drums or buckets move along the track, they rotate and lift the material off of the ground.
This process is similar to how a conveyor belt works. Conventional conveyors use large belts that move items along a narrow path. Industrial elevating graders use smaller belts that move items along a wider path. This difference is why they are often called “cross-over” machines because they cross over between the two types of machines.
The elevating grader attachments can cause accidents in a number of ways. Accidents can occur when the attachments become dislodged, snag on objects, or become caught in machinery. When these attachments are not properly maintained, they can also become dangerous and cause injuries to workers.
If you have been injured by an elevating grader attachment, contact an attorney as soon as possible as you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney can help you understand your rights and what steps you should take to protect yourself.
