DECKHAND®

Building a legacy, one job at a time.

Founded in safety. Grounded in innovation. For over a decade, DECKHAND® has built its material handling legacy in major infrastructure.

Engineered around optimal safety, the DECKHAND® by LaValley Industries allows precise load handling and placement without the need for a ground crew working in the vicinity of moving pipe, poles or road mats. DECKHAND® is designed to work safely in any weather condition, including wind, mud, snow and ice.

The DECKHAND® system is a modular design that consists of a main head unit used with a variety of interchangeable arms. The main head mounts to any brand of excavator—the excavator’s auxiliary hydraulics then safely and efficiently power the DECKHAND® system. The interchangeable arms are used to pick up pipe, poles, casings or road mats and securely lift, lower, rotate, and tilt the load under the total control of the operator. Arms can grip securely from an offcenter position, allowing maximum control in areas with tight accessibility.

Achieve controlled, 360° precision material handling—whatever the conditions—with DECKHAND®.
