Shell buggies are a tank welder's ideal solution. Supported off the top shell of the tank, the compact work platform provides the operator access to both horizontal and vertical seams for up to 10' plates. They are used for preparation, cleaning or repair without the need for scaffolding. The fold down steps or power elevation provide the operator with a full reach of the entire vertical seam. Powered and manual traverse options are available, with large lifting eyes for loading and unloading on/off the tank shell. Flanged wheels and safety fingers allow for use on up to 1" thick material.
