Stability & Leg Deployment

Via its Technical Standards Committee (TSC), ALLMI has recently updated its guidance on the issue of stabiliser legs sometimes raising clear of the ground during lorry loader operation (on the non-lifting side).

ALLMI Technical Manager and Chair of the TSC, Keith Silvester, comments “Following queries from sites, ALLMI initially produced guidance on this subject several years ago, but this has recently been revised by our Technical Standards Committee so that it now contains references to the latest version of BS EN12999.”  

He continues “The guidance explains the process of stability testing that lorry loaders are subjected to, and it also differentiates between the structure of a lorry loader and a mobile crane, for which a lack of understanding can sometimes add to the confusion on the part of sites.”  

In conjunction with the launch of this revised document, ALLMI has also reminded members of its Information for Sites guidance.  ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “The ‘Information for Sites’ document provides guidance for sites on how to identify whether stabiliser legs are correctly deployed, and so it ties in well with the recent update from the TSC.  It also includes an explanation of the types of lorry loader documentation which sites should reasonably expect to evidence.”

Keith Silvester adds “The aim of both of these guidance documents is to assist in educating all parts of the industry, thereby facilitating a consistent and informed approach on lorry loader related matters and ensuring conformity with legislation and good practice.”
