New automatic chain throwing & tensioning system

Friday 28 Apr 2023

WASP, a division of the Trinder Group, with the support of ACC and Forest Growers Research have developed new technology that removes the truck driver from the hazards of throwing chains over their load, allowing for heavier chains to be used. The benefits of this are not just related to health and safety and the reduction in shoulder injuries, but also making the job easier and less physically demanding for the driver.

The new automatic chain throwing and tensioning system (see around the 25 second mark in the attached video to see the new system being used) is one of a raft of new technologies being discussed and demonstrated as part of the upcoming Wood Transport & Logistics 2023 event being run for the forestry and log transport industries in Rotorua, New Zealand on 24-25 May 2023.
