Essential safety gear for workers


Nivek Industries Tracked Elevating Devices (TED) are essential pieces of safety gear for anyone working on dozers, graders, dump trucks, and other mining and earth-moving machinery.

TED is a remote controlled self propelled belly plate jack designed to take the weight out of belly plate removal and replacement while removing personnel from the deadly crush zone of suspended loads.

After several years of meticulous development, Nivek Industries is proud to introduce a new, larger, and more potent bigger brother, appropriately named Big TED.

Big TED was primarily designed to lift weights that were above the SWL of TED yet still maintain a low profile and manoeuvrability. Capable of lifting loads of up to 3,000kgs (6,614lbs) to a height of 1,600mm (63inch), Big TED can lift those heavy loads that were beyond his little brother’s capacity.

The increased lifting capacity is accomplished via a robust scissor lift mechanism powered by two hydraulic cylinders which provide ample power and reliability.

Operated by a joystick activated remote control, Big TED can achieve even greater precision during its movement. The fully proportional joystick and independent electric drive motors allows operators to easily control the speed and direction of Big TED with extreme precision.

Several user-friendly features including a powered turntable, +/- 40mm side shift, loaded weight display, and AUX power for attachments will provide operators with a fully controllable system.


Designed by a fitter for fitters,TED and Big TED are the only remote-controlled, all-terrain, hydraulic belly plate jacks on the market.


Big TED utilises remote-control operation effectively removing personnel from suspended load hazards and safeguards against potentially fatal crush injuries.


Big TED can be used in very tight spaces under fixed-plant or machinery to remove and replace heavy components.


Big TED has been built with a powered turntable, table side shift, load cells, and tilt sensor, to provide operators greater control and useful feedback.


Big TED allows for streamlined field maintenance which increases productivity and reduces the need for personnel to move loads around and between sites.


Big TED is wirelessly controlled by a paired radio system operating at 2.4GHz.


A 24V rechargeable battery system powers Big TED’s two independent 3.5kW infinite control electric drive motors.


Big TED has been built with an impressive 3,000kg (6,614lbs) safe working load lifting capacity.


Versatile smart attachments can be mounted to the Big TED turntable or table front allowing operators to perform a variety of tasks.

Designed by a fitter, Big TED is built to last and for ease of maintenance. Servicing your own machine will not void the warranty. Detailed maintenance schedules and procedures can be found within the operator’s manual allowing regular servicing to be performed through your own fitters, by Nivek Industries or our Service Agents.

Nivek Industries and our global network of Service Agents can provide customers with onsite training and induction packages to simplify the induction to site.
