Probst improves paving block work
25 March 2008
The new Probst paving block extractor is designed to remove damaged paving blocks from pavements, even if they are firmly bonded. The spring steel blades of the SZ block extractor are driven into joints with the combination hammer KH and jammed, and the gripping force is held by means of a locking device. Additions to the SZ include the extraction foot level AHW, which can be pushed underneath the extractor and pushed down by foot. For blocks that are extremely interlocked, a hammer drill can be used on the AHW to provide maximum grip on each slab. Meanwhile, the company'sklift Attachment Grab STAZ S Unigrip 11 with four sided fork sleeves is, says the German company, a universal forklift attachment able to handle all kinds of paving stones, kerbs and blocks. The attachment can be positioned with the grippers across or long side of the forklift. Only two to three minutes are needed to change its position.
