Can anyone direct me to a company that sells equipment to allow us to do pull tests on scaffold ties?

What do you think would be a fair price?

We got ours at leaches. We priced around at the time and they were same price as the rest but they sent a load of drop ins as well which made the best deal so well worth a try

Thank mate for the info. I heard that Hydrajaws will not supply Leach's any longer with their pull testers as Leach's tried to copy it and made a bad job with no proper calibration cert.
Go direct to Hydrajaws in Birmingham and you could get a discount and they offer training in the use of the tester too.
We paid about £850 for ours this year.

Ours came from Leachs and was just a hydrajaw , it came with all the attachments , calibration certs etc.

SP what's the charge for calibration with Hydrajaw ?
Leeches charge around the £150 including picking it up and delivery back
