Swing-Up Stabilisers - Tier One Contractor Acceptance Criteria
Tier one contractors have confirmed their complete acceptance criteria for lorry loaders with swing-up stabiliser legs, which is as follows:
If any one of the following applies, then the lorry loader meets with tier one contractor requirements:
- Fixed control stations (including emergency control stations) are located outside of the swing-up arc of the stabiliser leg (on both sides of the vehicle).
- Fixed control stations (including emergency control stations) are located within the swing-up arc of the stabiliser leg, but a manufacturer or authorised representative approved technical solution is fitted that prevents the stabiliser beam from being fully retracted unless the leg is in the vertical / upright position.
- Stabilisers have a manually operated swing-up function (regardless of whether fixed control stations are located within the swing-up arc). Therefore, the stabiliser beam cannot be retracted with the leg in a horizontal position.
Should the lorry loader comply with the above, its details will be eligible for uploading to ALLMI’s Swing-Up Stabilisers Compliance Register (or a manufacturer-specific equivalent system).
Lorry loaders that do not meet the above criteria will not be permitted to operate on tier one contractor sites.
