“The Slide Rail System worked very well,” said Murphy. “I would definitely use the system again for a job with space limits like we had.” Midwest installed the entire Slide Rail System with a: • • • • John Deere 450 excavator, Kobelco SK170 excavator that was lifted into the system to dig under the posts and panels, Terex hydrau- lic truck crane with a maxi- mum height of 38 feet, to set the Slide Rail linear posts John Deere 624 wheel loader that supplied the excavator with Slide Rail panels and other equip- ment while also moving dirt away from the excavation. The height restrictions meant tight-sheeting could only be driven at night. In- stead, Midwest REM chose an Efficiency Production manufactured Slide Rail System with integrated guard rail to shore the large excavation. 16 NCP
