A components supplier of commercial lawn mowing equipment installed a new press brake for forming sheet metal into the decks for large mowers. The brake bends the ends of pre-cut sheet metal and forms deck plates that measure 42 to 72 inches. The metal sheets are 7 to 10 gauge, and range in weight from about 40 to 125 pounds.
The solution to this ergonomic and safety concern was a Gorbel Freestanding 330-pound capacity Easy Arm Q model with an 14-foot span and 10-foot height under boom.
