Model LX

The Safe-Away® Model LX Ladder has been designed to provide safe access for operation & maintenance personnel to large mining and earthmoving equipment. Two pairs of  hydraulically powered parallel arms retract the ladder vertically for convenient stowage when the machine is operational.

To further protect the ladder from physical damage, the ladder’s electrical system can be interconnected with the park brake and slewing mechanism to ensure the machine cannot be operated until the ladder is fully retracted.

Designed for use on:

  • Shovels
  • Excavators
  • Equipment up to 3900mm deck height

  • Incab control panel with digital display showing access system status, UP, DOWN and IN MOTION, detailed fault indication with audible alarm and system event log.
  • 3,000 point event data log with download using a USB key connection to the side of the incab control panel.
  • An operational access-courtesy light (optional) is activated by pressing the up or down directional switch. The light will stay on for a preset period.
  • A park brake interlock provides additional protection by ensuring the ladder is raised automatically when the park brake is released.

  • Keeps the ladder out of harms way when equipment is in operation
