Truck Attachment Safely Slides Construction Barrels Into Place

April 1, 2019

This is a probably too long promotional video of the Barrel Mover 5000, a truck attachment that can slide construction barrels from one lane to another without a worker on foot risking their life to do it (I assume it can also be used to initially deploy barrels placed from the back of a truck). Pretty clever. It almost looks like a game. Just not a very fun game unless you're playing on expert mode at 50+MPH.

Keep going for the whole video (while I speculate why 5000?), but the gif pretty much is all you need to see unless you're in the market for a barrel mover.

Thanks to Cliff S, who informed me tossing barrels off the back of a flatbed and watching a barrel mover 5000 push them into place has always been a dream of his.

    Can I rent one the next time there are protests? I don't want to run over people but I got places to be!

    You need a conveyor belt that's hooked up to the wheels and goes the same speed as your vehicle.

    You can buy it all-in, dirt cheap, direct from the manufacturer...
    ...but it blasts this tune out repeatedly over built in loudspeakers as long as it's deployed.

    That is pretty insanely brilliant.

    For that time you accidentally put all your cones in the wrong lane and need to fix it quick before the boss sees?

  • sizzlepants

    Yeah because road work never gets done just one lane at a time right?

    Cannot tell if you missed my joke, or I missed yours...
