Installation tool reduces panel wear and tear, provides access to push points
P.I.T. Boss panel installation tool allows users to increase speed and ease of installing manufacturer’s Slide Rail Systems. Tool consists of: a floating guide, through which either a 10- or 14-ft.-long steel pusher beam slides; a large push pad at the top of the beam; and a push shoe that rests on panel being installed. Large push pad eliminates need for excavator operator to locate narrow panel tops with excavator bucket used to push them into place. Also provides access to panel push points. Significantly reduces wear and tear on panels as well as on excavator bucket used to push panels down. Adjustable design allows tool to be used on 4- and 6-in.-thick panels.
