Made in NZ: WASP a locally made chain throwing device

From Afternoons, 2:24 pm on 6 May 2024

A little known danger for our hard working logging truck drivers around the country is actually not when they're on the road dealing with some appalling drivers.

In fact it's a shoulder problem that many have suffered from when they've been throwing the large chains over the massive logs they're hauling to keep them safely in place.

Such is the problem that a local company Trinder's invented a new tool to help them and avoid injury.

Their teams invented a device which does the chain throwing for you, so truck drivers are less at risk of injuring themselves.

Managing Director, Kerry Hill speaks to Jesse.
