High Reach Demolition Rig Guidance Notes
In recent years the size and reach capabilities of high and ultra high reach demolition machines, along with their deployment, has increased dramatically. In recognition of this the NFDC has produced this guide to ensure best practice in the use of high and ultra high reach excavators and to improve user and procurer awareness. In using this guide, it should be recognised that these machines can be subject to complex loading and variable site conditions. Although this guide is not intended to replace the important information within the owner and operator manuals supplied by the manufacturer it is designed to promote the implementation of minimum design mechanisms for the safe use, installation, maintenance and repair standards necessary to ensure safe operation.
