PIPE JACK AND STANDS
B&B's pipe jacks and stands are an industry standard with many units sold into the field. The jacks and stands help the pipe fabricator hold the pipe at a safe and ergonomic elevation, allowing increased productivity. Made from quality steel tube and pipe, the jacks and stands offer great value, balancing the ability to withstand the everyday abuse of job site use while being available at a very competitive price.
MEGA ROLLERS AND STANDS
B&B's mega rollers and jacks are a more robust, higher capacity line of material handling equipment than the standard line of jacks and stands. They allow increased pipe diameter capacity, as well as increased weight capacity. These mega rollers are built to last in the toughest of job site conditions.
MATERIAL HANDLING EQUIPMENT
B&B's carts and buggies consist of job site material handling carts. The Stacker Cart can be shipped and stacked on the way to the job site minimizing handling and shipping costs, then folds open for use while in the field. The pipe buggy models are designed to easily transport pipes, fittings and other parts on the job site or workshop, minimizing ergonomic exposure and manual handling.
