West Coast Haulage Ltd have designed a new product for safer highway maintenance this new product will highly reduce the risk of debris spilling over on or into the path of passing traffic while loading tippers on the side of highways where space is restricted.

This device has been designed to be compatible with the bucket linkage on the excavator dipper arm enabling it to be quickly connected as the lorry is arriving and then lowered and positioned onto the side of the lorry, once the guard is in place the excavator operator can reconnect the excavator bucket and safely start loading the tipper lorry without having to worry about spillage onto the highway which is his biggest blind spot and safety concern.

Once the lorry has been loaded the excavator operator can quickly remove the guard move it into a safe area while the lorry driver leaves the loading area, the excavator operator can then place the guard on the ground and reconnect the excavator bucket
