Oxford Dipper Pool Hoist with Ranger Seat - Stainless SteelPlease be aware - This the new Oxford Dipper stainless steel and has replaced the older model. The new stainless steel Oxford Dipper now comes with a 10-year life span instead of 7 years.  We expect the original oxford dipper to be replaced fully by the end of September.IntroductionStephen Pritchard, Managing Director of AAL LTD is a full-time wheelchair user and is driven to supply a quality service at an affordable price. The Oxford Dipper Pool hoist is the most predominant hoist within the UK’s NHS hospitals, Care Centres, Private Residential Homes, Yachting & Sailing Clubs, Quaysides, Therapy & Swimming Pools and Health Centres which has a maximum SWL (Safe Working Load) of 22 Stone (140 Kg).The Dipper uses a hydraulic pump to raise and lower service users and gives the support workers and service users peace of mind as it’s not reliant on electricity.  To operate the hoist, simply pump the hydraulic pump using the handle to raise the user and to release, unscrew the black pump valve to slowly lower the service user.There are two variations of the Oxford Dipper Pool Hoist, the standard Oxford Dipper with spreader bar and the Oxford Dipper with Ranger seat. Both variations are available with an array of sockets to meet each individual customers specification.Oxford Dipper Pool Hoist with Ranger seatThe Ranger seat version is the most popular as it offers dignity to those service users who need extra assistance in a changing or bedroom before entering the pool.  An example of this would be if a hotel had a pool with Oxford Dipper Pool hoist and a guest wished to use the pool, they could then get dressed in their room and then be pushed to the pool side and transferred into the pool safely and without fuss.The Oxford Dipper Ranger has been cleverly designed to aid users who need assistance approaching and entering the pool. The chair is reversed up to the Dipper pool hoist and the ‘T’ bar is connected to the back of Ranger chair.  The support person simply pumps the dipper until it locks into position and continues to pump, raising the service user up further, enabling the seat to detach from the Ranger chassis and leave the service user sitting in the seat section. When lowered into position in the pool, the service user can then float away from the Ranger seat if desired.The process is carried out in reverse to lift the person from the pool, very easy, safe and convenient for both the user and support person whilst maintaining dignity.Can you have both options on one Dipper? There are two types of Oxford Dipper boom extensions, the 6 point spreader bar and the Ski tube which is compatible with the Oxford Ranger Seat.  The 6 point spreader bar is used with slings, slings with loops, not clips.  The spreader bar is very easy to attached, it takes 2 minutes. The Ski Tube connects again, very easy.  This enables the Ranger seat to reverse up to lift, connect and lift with ease within a few minutes.  To demonstrate how easy it is to connect  these attachments, we've created a couple of short videos for your convenience.Specifications Safe Working Load (SWL): 140 kg / 22 stBoom Length: 1498 mmHeight (socket A & B, boom lowered): 1422 mm Height (socket A & B, boom full elevation): 2108 mm Base of Seat Above Floor Level (socket A & B): 889 mmBase of Seat Below Floor Level (socket A & B): 914 mmHeight (socket C, boom lowered): 1572 mmHeight (socket C, boom full elevation): 2258 mmBase of Seat Above Floor Level (socket C): 1039 mmBase of Seat Above Floor Level (socket C): 764 mmWeights: Weight - Mast Assembly: 15.4 kgWeight - Boom Assembly: 10.4 kgWeight - Chair Support Tube: 3.6 kgWeight - Ranger Seat: 4.5 kgWeight - Ranger Chassis: 8.7 kgWeight - Spreader Bar Assembly: 1.7 kgFeatures - 3 Floor Fixing Options- Use with almost any swimming pool- Safe Working Load (SWL) of 140 kg (22 st)- Spreader Bar and Sling option- Ranger Transporter optionHow do you connect the Oxford Dipper Spreader Bar?How do you connect the Oxford Dipper Ski Tube for the Ranger seat?How is the Dipper fitted to the floor? The Dipper comes with three options. Socket A, B and C. The sockets are ergonomically designed to be fit for different materials and finishes enabling the Oxford Dipper to be installed in almost any pool side setting. For more information on the socket fittings, please visit our website here.Socket A for Oxford DipperTo fit the socket A, a 1 m sq cube of concrete is required as the minimum recommendation.  If already installed, a 91 mm hole then needs to be drilled 350 mm deep. An accredited engineer will then install the sockets interior, casing and socket cap which will then sit flush with the floor.The Dipper then slots into the socket when in use and once the use has been completed or you wish to store away, simply slide the dipper out of the hole ensuring you have lowered the boom to its lowest point and with the dipper strap, secure the pump tightly to the mast. This will prevent damage to the mast, pump and release valve when transporting the dipper to storage.After use please ensure the dipper pump is lowered to its lowest possible position, this ensures that the chrome on the hydraulic pump remains oiled and rust free and therefore extending the service life of the hoist. Should the hoist not remain oiled, the chrome will become pitted and this will destroy the internal seals over a long period of time, a new hydraulic pump costs approx. £500.00 exclusive of vat.Socket B for Oxford DipperSocket B is fitted and installed as shown in the picture above, socket B is primarily used in swimming pools which have a water channel around that outlines the perimeter of the pool. Socket B is a replica of socket A with an added base plate which adds additional bracing and support to the Oxford Dipper.The B socket plate is fixed into place with six 15 mm diameter expanding bolts of the rawplug type, for more information please see the socket construction as illustrated above.As with the A socket, the B socket is slightly below floor level and is fitted with a blanking plug. The blanking plug can be inserted into the hole when the Oxford Dipper is transported away for storage, this leaves a clean flush finish to the pool sides surface, minimising injury and maximising hygiene in the pool area. Socket C for Oxford DipperSocket C is surface mounted and stands proud of the floor by approx. 150 mm, this socket is used mainly where there is insufficient depth of concrete for sockets A or B.  The C socket plate is drilled with four 15 mm rawplug type expanding bolts, the recommended minimum depth of concrete to enable an accredited engineer to install the hoist is 150 mm.Due to the protruding nature of the socket, socket C adds 150 mm to the overall height of the hoist and therefore alters the maximum height of the bottom of the chair to 1039 mm and the lowest position of the chair bottom below floor level to 764 mm.  For more information, please see the illustration found above...

The user will then be suspended by the supporting sling, this person can then be safely lowered into the pool by unscrewing the black dipper release valve into the pool. Can you have both options on one Dipper? There are two types of Oxford Dipper boom extensions, the 6 point spreader bar and the Ski tube which is compatible with the Oxford Ranger Seat.
