What is a life worth?

Remove your workers from the line of fire with TED's remote control operation.

Field to workshop; maintenance, rebuilds and breakdowns TED will help keep your fitters safe and improve efficiency shift after shift.

Tracked Elevating Device – TED

The safest way to remove and replace belly plates.

The Tracked Elevating Device, fondly known by mining fitters around the world as 'TED' is an essential piece of safety gear for anyone working on dozers, graders, dump trucks and other mining and earth-moving machinery.

Unmatched globally, TED is self-propelled and remote controlled, designed to take the weight out of belly plate removal and replacement while removing fitters from the deadly crush zone. TED’s tracks and front blade allow access to a wide variety of terrains, making field service a safe alternative to costly haulage in some cases.

TED™ can be used in very tight spaces under machinery to remove and replace belly guards and other heavy components. With the constantly growing array of attachments available for TED™, the need for personnel to push, pull or carry heavy loads in tight awkward situations in 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™.

Why is TED so important?

Belly plates crush fitters! Right here in Australia there have been numerous fatalities from falling belly plates whilst carrying out maintenance in the past 3 years.

Protecting against back, shoulder, neck and musculoskeletal injuries. By taking the weight off the body in awkward unnatural postures, fitters can expect a reduction in manual handling related injuries.

Fatigue reduction, resulting in greater alertness and less chance for 'mind off the job' injuries.

Hand and finger pinch and crush injuries. Keep your fitters hands away from pinch points and crush zones by having components supported by TED and attachments.

Unplanned moves and stored energy release are some of the most dangerous hazards in mining. Keeping your fitters out of the line of fire by using a remote controlled TED will help to safeguard against these deadly hazards in many maintenance applications.

Getting TED to work.

We understand the mining approvals process and can help you through it.

Your order

Every sites requirements will vary, so we don't just have a one package fits all approach. We can help you figure out which attachments will suit your machinery and needs.

We have flexible purchase and lease options available, so even small contract companies can benefit from a life saving TED setup.

Be sure to look into the range of attachments available to maximise the safety and efficiency gains your site can achieve with a TED setup.

We can send a qualified trainer to site (In Australia) at an additional cost if required or provide a training package to your training department free of charge.

Field ready set ups

TED is the pit fitters best mate. To make access to the pit or even multiple sites easy, we manufacture our own quality Pit Rescue Trailer meeting even the toughest site requirements.

Looking after TED

Designed by a fitter, TED has been built to last and for ease of maintenance.
