EasyDig 4-foot trench cage for hydrovacs

Designed to be used with a hydrovac, EasyDig’s 4-foot-diameter circular trench cage is new to the excavation industry.

The latest design is engineered to 28-foot depth, depending on soil conditions. With a built-in access/egress ladder, EasyDig was created specifically for sewer and water utility repairs. This latest version comes with a lid that locks onto the trench cage to keep the excavation safe from passersby. 855-485-3279;

 OZ Lifting Products CompOZite davit crane

OZ Lifting Products’ patented CompOZite davit crane is made of advanced composite materials that make it 40% lighter than equivalent capacity steel davits. With a total weight of only 83 pounds for the boom, mast and winch combined, a single crane is commonly moved to multiple base locations throughout a treatment plant. A ratchet screw jack allows the user to adjust the boom from horizontal to 45 degrees while under load and the 360-degree rotation of the crane allows a full range of motion. Smart-latch technology at the boom/mast means no tools are required for assembly. A zinc-plated finish on all non-composite parts provides added corrosion protection. AC and DC electric winches are optional, or a manual winch comes standard with a drill drive adapter. The cranes are made in the U.S. and each one is individually tested and certified at 125%. 800-749-1064;
