Diversified Products now offers its single man baskets with the ability to attach to any knuckleboom that meets ASME standard B30.23. Due to specialized adapters, the baskets install easily and quickly to extend the capabilities of knuckleboom trucks. Eliminating the need to use ladders or climb on equipment, they also provide fall arrest and fall protection.

With the ability to hold up to 350 lbs. (159 kg), Diversified’s single man basket contains a large, open work area to allow maximum productivity. The full-sized floor is 30 in. (76 cm) wide by 30 in. deep, and it contains slots for water drainage, as well as upset holes for skid resistance. Additionally, the basket includes a tilt angle indicator and a low-maintenance disc brake.

To meet the high demands of any access application, the baskets are constructed from heavy-duty steel and fabricated with laser-produced parts, which are keyed together and then welded into place. The entire assembly is designed using solid modeling and finite element analysis, and the finished product meets or exceeds industry standards.

In addition to the single man basket, Diversified offers the ability to attach any of its baskets to knucklebooms, including its larger units with capacities up to 1,200 lbs. (544 kg).
