Difficult Tent Installations Made Easy with Tent OX™

Tent Installations Simplified

If you have been a professional tent installer for many years, you know it is not unusual to be asked to do the impossible.  Whether you are forced to park the trucks on the street and manually haul the contents of two 24 foot trucks to the back yard, or take a 1% slope and level it using a Granite or Biljax Stage floor in order to install a 6000 SF tent on it,   you know how to “get the job done”.  No matter what the challenge, the Tent OX was designed to make the professional tent installations easier.  This video shows how the tent foreman worked around a difficult installation on a commercial site.

Scenario
A 60,000 SF office space is empty.  The Commercial Realtor wants to bring some attention to the property by holding an event under a 50 x 70 tent installed on a 50’ wide blacktop parking lot.  Staking is 80% blacktop plus one side bordered with 40 feet of heavy shrubbery, 5′ tall.  Stakes need to be installed 4 feet into the shrubs to full depth.

Analysis 

The optimum location for the stakes is critical to the proper tensioning of the tent.  This location is impossible to access with a sledge hammer or gas driver unless you are standing within or on the bushes.  Since garden beds are inherently loose soil, the lace line and corner stakes must be tripled up with stake bars to insure holding power.

Solution

The Tent Ox makes the job easy by utilizing the boom-mounted OX Driver and OX Puller.   Both tools can be extended up to 5 feet beyond the machine wheel.  The  Driver and Puller’s “top down” design makes it easy to thread the tool through the branches causing no damage to the landscaping.  The machine and operator can work from the blacktop, extending the  tools over the shrubs and down to the stake.  Since the rest of the site is blacktop, the need for pre-drilling is eliminated by having the OX Driver on site, for further $$ savings.
