We recently reviewed an incident in which one of our DB-1 Derrick Baskets was broken during operation. After investigating the incident, in which no one was hurt, it was revealed that the DB-1 was not used properly. This “purpose built” product is designed to operate inside the derrick with proper secondary fall protection and attached to an air tugger. This lightweight device has only a single point attachment to the hook and is not designed to be operated with a crane. If you are operating inside the derrick, you will find that the streamlined DB-1 will safely move throughout the derrick when used properly.
If you need a multi-use basket you will find that our Collapsible Work Basket, OSHA Man Basket and Rigid Cargo Basket will better serve your purpose.
