Hello - What is the attachment in the picture below called? This would come in handy for some outcropping work I'm doing. Any idea where I could purchase one or something similar would be great. (sorry, the picture is large and I'm not sure how to resize)

Thanks!

-Adam

It's some type of slab lift. This company sells some heavier looking versions.

The picture shows the tool that comes with that specific out-cropping stone. Basically there is no forks, just a hook's to a loop in the stone.

My supplier has that attachment for a small rental fee if you buy that stone and need it for an install.

Off the top of my head I think the company is Paveloc, maybe Halquist but I'm not for sure. That tool is specifically designed for that cultured outcropping.

Yes, it is cultured or manufactured stone. My supplier carries it, but can't remember the name.

Those are pegs on the bottom and there is a re-bar type loop in the center. There are caps for the stone also, so you have a smooth top when done.

Pretty neat stuff. I hope I have the chance to use it someday. It doesn't look too far off from natural too, and wayyyyyy easier to install.
