Rear vision


Staffordshire contractor Friel Construction has fitted rear-view camera systems to all its excavators and telehandlers. The removable systems comprise LCD screens and magnetically attached colour cameras from Spillard Systems.

Friel health and safety manager John Berks said: 'We used to rely on rear-mounted convex mirrors but we now much prefer our operators to concentrate on forward vision with the strategically placed LCD screens.'

The systems can be easily removed to improve security.
