ForensisGroup swing loader expert witnesses work with this rigid frame loader that contains a swinging boom that can swing 180 degrees or more.
Swing loaders are used primarily by the railroad and construction industries. These vehicles can have many attachments to the boom such as magnets, forks, and buckets. Some swing loader booms and housings have been replaced with a 200-degree turntable that allows the operator to accomplish swing crane functions. This boom assembly can accomplish wheel loader functions with 14,500 lbs of lift capacity.
Swing loaders have been the subject of litigation, including wrongful death, patent, trademark, and products liability. Our experts testify in cases of workplace safety, standard of care, as well as swing loader operation and training.
