Rope and Pulley Materials Mover

Rope and Pulley Materials Mover

Our product code: P-IC-MSW-RPMM_B

Our unique Rope and Pulley Materials Mover, provides pulleys enclosed within a steel box (with clear polycarbonate fronts so children can see all of the workings!) to ensure no fingers are caught.

It provides a rope circuit spanning between two posts, with a vertical rope running up one of posts to pull a suspended bucket along with gravity assisting your children's effort.

Load up mud, sand, or water. and move the bucket across the span, to connect different play areas and transport materials from A to B.

Connect a planting area with a mud kitchen, a sandpit with a construction zone, or a water source with a water wall, and encourage cooperation between your children, developing their teamwork and social skills.

With the pulleys enclosed in a clear box, children can see the pulleys working which introduces them to scientific topics such as mechanisms.

  • Size (L x H): Up to 3000mm x 1800mm​
  • Clear polycarbonate-fronted steel pulley enclosures (so you can see the workings!)
