This condo in New Orleans has a one-story brick front and Hardie Board on up. It required two frames and an attachable ladder. They had to stop and hop boards twice to top out.
When they started using Workhorse, they set it up BEFORE starting the wall, and NEVER STOPPED ONCE until the wall was topped out.
They saved two “plank hops” and increased production by 34%.
Always put WORKHORSE in place FIRST, before the first piece of material is laid. The masons start the wall off the scaffold and never move until the wall is topped out. (Running a wall scaffold-high and moving your men kills about 20 minutes of production time.)
Here the wall is topped out and the Laborers’ Platform has been removed.
Earlier, the laborers filled the masons’ workbench with enough materials to top out, and then removed the laborers’ platform. After that, they threw mortar up with a shovel.
With just the WORKHORSE base tower you see here, the bricklayers’ feet will be 8′-3″ above the base. Add about 9″ for the leveling jacks, and they can stand 9 feet high and comfortably top out a 13-foot wall with only the base unit.
WORKHORSE builds walls 30% faster than frames because your men never stop and they are always waist-high.
No winches or cables. WORKHORSE jacks up in 1-3/4″ increments like a truck jack. A simple jack handle moves from tower to tower to quickly raise the masons and their workbench.
WORKHORSE puts your masons at exactly the right height for the work at hand.
Land full pallets of block, 400 brick, or full tubs of mortar on the Laborers’ Platform. WORKHORSE can take it. You have 4 planks for stocking. Max. 3,800 lbs. (Never overload your boards.)
The Laborers Platform has 4 boards – three 16-footers behind the tower, and a standard Non-Stop cut board between the towers – plenty of material stocking
Every tower is legal to climb.
Using only the 9′-7″ Base Tower, your masons stand 8′-3″ above the floor – high enough to top out walls as high as 14 feet inside. Add an extension if you need it and they stand 12′-6″ above the floor.
