Tent Stakes

A customer approached our booth at a recent tradeshow and mentioned that her company had experience a rash of injury claims against their workers compensation insurance due to injuries received while the crews were installing tent stakes. She revealed that the process that they use for installation used several systems. Sledge hammers, jack hammers and gas powered breakers were all used to drive tent stakes. She inquired if our system would be less likely to cause injury.

The Challenge: 

Quickly install tent stakes with minimal injury risk to the tent crews.

The Solution: 

Eliminate the tools for the existing process and re-tool.

The Tools: 

A modified PD 55 with 2 ½ tent stake adapter, and Kaeser M 15 air compressor.

The Result: 

Lowered the experience rating of the company and increased the speed at which the company crews were able to install tents.
