Introduction

TED supporting a removed belly guard.

 

TED™ (Tracked Elevating Device) is a track driven, all-terrain, battery operated, remote controlled belly plate jack.

 

TED™ removes the need for personnel to place themselves under suspended loads associated with the maintenance of heavy earth-moving equipment like bulldozers, graders etc. Being of a low profile design, and able to lift 800kg from 315mm to 1170mm, TED™ can be used in very tight spaces under machinery to carry and lift heavy components and manoeuvre them safely over soft/rough terrain.

With the constantly growing array of attachments available for TED™, the need for personnel to push, pull, or carry heavy loads in and around the workshop and the field, is greatly decreased. Improve the efficiency and safety of maintenance operations in your workplace with the versatility and reliability of a TED™.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overview

 

TED™ is simple and safe to operate. The basis of operation of TED™ includes the following key points:

  • TED™ is powered by a 12 volt rechargeable, non-hazardous battery system.
  • The Operational Functions (driving, steering, and raising the platform) are controlled via an easy to use wireless Remote Control Handset.
  • The Operational Functions are controlled by a hydraulic pump system, powered by a 12 volt electric motor.
  • TED™ is an all-terrain skid steer track vehicle. The tracks are powered by two hydraulic motors (one for each track) and can operate at two different speeds.
  • The total lifting capacity of TED™ is engineered at a Safe Working Load (SWL) of 800kg (Independently Certified) and has a maximum lift height of 1170mm.
  • TED™ has a turntable on the platform allowing secured loads to be swiveled around if necessary.
  • TED™ has several built in safety features including:
    • load lock valves on each RAM to prevent platform from collapsing,
    • strobe and alarm to alert personnel that TED™ is operating and to adhere to the 3m exclusion zone, and
    • emergency stop button on the Remote Control handset and the unit itself, and
    • deadman switch that the operator has to physically engage before every operation to avoid any accidental operational signals.
  • TED™ complies with Australian Standards AS4100, AS3990 & AS1554

Attachments

 

In order to increase the versatility, TED™ can be fitted with several general purpose attachments. These can easily be fitted to the main chassis by either utilising the Front Attachment Pins or bolted onto the Turn-table.

BladeDozer blade edit

The Blade comes standard with TED and is attached to the front of the main chassis utilising the Front Attachment Pins. The Blade’s intended purpose is to clear a safe working area underneath a vehicle that has broken down on arduous terrain.

 

 

Track Roller Carrier Track Roller Carrier edit

The Track Roller Carrier can be attached to the front of the main chassis utilising the Front Attachment Pins. The Track Roller Carrier’s intended purpose is to aid in the replacement of track rollers. The Track Roller Carrier has a SWL of 200kg.

 

Cutting Edge ToolCutting Edge tool edit

The Cutting Edge Tool can be bolted onto the Turn-table. The Cutting Edge Tool’s intended purpose is to aid in the replacement of bulldozer cutting edges.

 

 

 

Steer Cylinder CradleSteer Cylinder Cradle edit

The Steer Cylinder Cradle can be bolted onto the Turn-table. The Steer Cylinder Cradle’s intended purpose is to aid in the replacement of steer cylinders, tie rods and other similar components.

 

 

 

 

Stand Locating ToolStand locating tool edit

The Stand Locating Tool can be attached to the front of the main chassis utilising the Front Attachment Pins. The Stand Locating Tool’s intended purpose is to aid in the placement of axle stands under suspended loads. The Stand Locating Tool has a SWL of 200kg.

 

TED™ Slope JigSlope Jig 2

The Slope Table can be bolted onto the Turn-table. The Slope Table’s angle is easily altered by turning the angle adjustment nut and ranges from zero degrees (flat) to forty five degrees when fully extended. The Slope Table is ideal for components with a sloping bottom (e.g. sumps). The Slope Table has a SWL of 400kg.

 

 

 

 

 

Extension BlocksExtension Block 3

The Extension Blocks can be bolted onto the turn-table. The Extension Blocks increase the reach of the turn-table mounted accessories increasing the versatility of each attachment. A single Extension Block will increase the maximum reach by 300mm, with a maximum of two Extension Blocks able to be stacked together to further increase the reach to 600mm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pivot Extension and Sump Table 

The Pivot Extension and Sump Table can easily be bolted onto the turn-table. The Pivot Extension allows the user to vary the angle up to 20 degrees which can be useful when removing or installing components that have a sloped base or are installed at a slight angle (e.g. steer cylinders). The sump table can be attached to the top of the pivot extension therefore creating a large surface area primarily used in removal and installing of sumps.
