Best Practices When Operating Mobile Shredders – Krokodile

The Krokodile mobile shredder is a beast of a machine, conquering demolition debris and turning waste into resources.

But with great power comes great responsibility, especially when it comes to safety.

Let’s chomp through some essential best practices to ensure you wield the Krokodile with confidence and keep everyone safe on the job site:

Before You Chomp:

  • Knowledge is Power: Devour the operator’s manual! Understand controls, procedures, and safety warnings before unleashing the Krokodile’s crushing appetite.
  • Pre-Chomp Inspection: Give your Krokodile a good look-over. Check for fluid leaks, loose parts, damage, and proper fluid levels. Ensure guards and safety devices are intact and ready to protect.
  • Gear Up Like a Pro: Don’t be a bare-knuckle shredder! Wear the full safety regalia: hard hat, safety glasses, ear protection, dust mask, sturdy gloves, and steel-toed boots.

While You Chomp:

  • Maintain a Safe Distance: Don’t get too close to the action! Keep at least 3 meters away from moving parts while the Krokodile chomps away.
  • Clear the Feeding Ground: Eliminate distractions and hazards. Keep bystanders and loose objects out of the designated chomp zone. Stay aware of your surroundings and potential dangers.

  • Patience is a Virtue: Don’t overload or rush the process. Feed the hopper at a safe speed and adjust as needed. Remember, quality chomping doesn’t require haste.
  • Keep Your Hands (and Everything Else) Out!: Never reach into the hopper or discharge chute while the Krokodile is chomping. If something gets stuck, wait for everything to stop completely before clearing it.
  • Beware the Pinch Points: Stay vigilant of moving parts and crushing hazards. Keep hands and limbs away, and exercise caution when handling materials near the hopper and discharge chute.
  • Communication is Key: Talk it out! Use hand signals or clear verbal communication to avoid confusion and potential accidents with colleagues.

Beyond the Basics:

  • Never operate under the influence. Drugs and alcohol are a recipe for disaster, not efficient shredding.
  • Weather the Storm (safely): Heavy rain, snow, or low visibility can impact safety. Consider postponing chomp sessions when weather conditions are unfavorable.
  • Speak Up, Speak Now: Report any malfunctions or safety concerns immediately. Don’t operate the Krokodile if you suspect any issues.
  • Seek Expert Guidance: Feeling unsure? Invest in proper training from a qualified professional before you start chomping.
