Enhance Worker Safety with the Swing-A-Way Lifter.

Greenville, SC. (July 1, 2011) — Bayne Premium Lift Systems has announced the launch of their new Swing-A-Way Lifter™, specifically designed to save time, reduce costs, and protect workers from back and other injuries associated with heavy lifting.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, back injuries are responsible for 25% of all lost work days, and 3 out of 4 of those injuries are attributed to lifting. To minimize weight, trash bag breakage, and worker‟s compensation costs, many companies are switching to smaller cans or heavier mil bags to manage their trash needs. Smaller cans mean employees must take out the trash more frequently, preventing them from performing other value-added tasks. Heavier mil trash bags are more costly that lighter mil bags, and literally equate to throwing money away.


Bayne‟s new Swing-A-Way Lifter is an ideal solution for any commercial or industrial application that uses 6-8 yard front-loading trash carts. It lifts up to 500 pounds, requires little space to operate, and fits most locations with ease. The unit is mounted to a concrete pad near a dumpster or compactor, not a front loader collection vehicle, so no special equipment is required. The portion of the Swing-A-Way Lifter gate which lifts the trash carts simply rolls on a hinge, enabling the hauler to empty the container, and then swings back into place.


“We developed this product to provide a lifting solution that could enhance worker safety and reduce costs while also addressing other common waste handling concerns,” says Carmen Smothers, Bayne Sales and Marketing Manager. “The Swing-A-Way Lifter is a great fit for customers who want to effectively manage their trash needs while protecting their employees from injury. It can be used indoors or outdoors, offering unmatched flexibility in a variety of applications.”


With a 15-second cycle time and the opportunity for workers to move away from the trash carts as they are lifted, customers are realizing measureable time savings and keeping workers happy. Jimmie Jones, 25-year veteran chef and unit manager at Bates House on the campus of University of South Carolina, has tested this unit with his staff and experienced excellent results. “Our employees have been very enthusiastic about the addition of the Swing-A-Way Lifter to our equipment,” says Jones. “Everybody is eager to learn how it works. Once they learn how to use it, they really take a liking to it. They refer to it as a „back saver‟ and are especially pleased that taking out the trash no longer means coming back to the kitchen with dirty uniforms.”
