Workforce safety and Green Climber. Are you putting your workforce at risk of injury? Safety is paramount when working in tough terrain.
Maintaining vegetation areas can be a dangerous job, especially by hand, putting your workers in potentially hazardous situations where serious injury can occur. The safety of your workforce should be your main concern. How can a Green Climber help with operator and workforce safety? Here’s the guide.
What is a Green Climber?
The Green Climber is for anyone who’s serious about controlling large areas of vegetation in difficult environments, while maintaining workforce safety in performing the job.
The Green Climber is a highly versatile machine that reduces your risk, risk to the operator and increases the profitability of your land clearing operations.
Every year more than 20,000 people are seriously injured by mowers and other vegetation clearing equipment.
The reality is, ride-on mowers, slashers, stump grinders and trench diggers are highly dangerous. Add in unsafe terrain and the risks of injury or fatality skyrocket.
The Green Climber machines are technically known as remote control mowers. The operator walks alongside the machine at a safe distance controlling operations from up to 350 metres away.
The Green Climber range is ideal for:
- Roadside verge maintenance
- Airport mowing beside runways
- Railway embankment clearing
- Firebreak creation & maintenance
- Forestry clearance operations
- Trenching operations
- Large scale weed spraying
- Mine rehabilitation projects
Ride on and push mowers struggle on steep slopes, both in maintaining traction and cut quality.
With its low centre of gravity and expandable track drive system, the Green climber can tackle slopes up to 60 degrees. Operator safety is one of the most critical advantages the Green Climber holds over ride-on mowers or manually controlled machinery.
Roadside, railway or airport maintenance, stump grinding, forest and land clearing; when you face dangerous and challenging areas that need serious attention you need the toughest of the tough.
Green Climber will meet any challenge you can throw at it.
But our specialised large remote controlled mowers aren’t just unstoppable they’ll also seriously improve your levels of operator and ultimately, your workforce safety.
Our Green Climber remote controlled mowers can tackle the toughest jobs with clinical efficiency and at the same time keep operating personnel 100% safe.
What is a Green Climber not?
Green Climber is not a set and forget robotic lawn mower; it’s a highly stable tracked mower, mulcher/ slasher that allows the operator to control it remotely from up to 350 metres away. (interested in set and forget robotic lawn mowers? We know just the place – www.roboworld.com.au)
If you think it will put a lot of staff out of a job, it wont. It will increase productivity by getting jobs done sooner without any downtime, risk of of injury or fatigue from your operator. An operator still has to operate the machine, it is just safely and from a distance. In doing so, avoiding slips or trips if maintaining areas on slopes. A large LCD screen on the remote control provides constant updates on performance and maintenance of the machine so there is no need to be anywhere near the machine during operation, so the operator is kept safely out of any potential harms way.
Its ability to handle incredibly steep slopes takes the challenge out of previously unmanageable or highly dangerous mowing, slashing or spraying operations.
How does a Green Climber create workforce safety?
With a Green Climber, all the movements of the machine can be carried out with the remote control. This keeps the manual operation to a minimum and saves the operator boarding a ride-on machine to complete the task.
With a long range of action of up to 150m, it makes it safe for the operator to perform risky or hazardous tasks, from a distance. The operator walks alongside the machine at a safe distance, controlling all operations of the machine.
The remote control system operates all functions required to operate the machine, keeping the operator safely out of tricky or steep terrain and safely.
Its ability to handle incredibly steep slopes, takes the challenge out of previously unmanageable or highly dangerous mowing, slashing or spraying operations.
Operator safety is one of the most critical advantages the Green Climber holds over ride-on mowers or manually controlled machinery.
Industry & Commercial Applications
Vegetation control on steep slopes has traditionally been one of the highest risk jobs in Australia. Green Climber enables you to streamline your safe operating procedures, reduce insurance premiums and slash operating costs. Our large remote control mowers are at home with any industrial or commercial application.
Green climber machines are the tool of choice for all challenging situations from airport maintenance teams where the use of human operators is prohibited, to rural fire service mitigation teams who need to quickly clear fire breaks or maintain fire trails.
You can deal easily with large lawns especially on steep hills with the finishing mower attachment.
The ability to deal effectively with weeds thanks to the insatiable cutting and mulching abilities, coupled with the spray attachment makes the Green Climber a powerful ally for any commercial contractor. And best of all, stump removal is a breeze.
We do also offer ride on slope brushcutter/mowers for smaller jobs, see here: www.therazorback.com.au.
