  • Strongboy Hire

    Prop head wall supports

    Strongboys brackets, or prop heads, fit the top of acrow props, and they are designed to support walls when fitting lintels, RSJs or beams. You hammer the blade of the strongboy into a raked mortar joint. Along with acrow props, they support the load's weight so that the masonry below can be removed. Strongboys weigh 6.5kg, with a support span of up to 900mm, and a maximum safe load of 340kg. The 'tongue' of the prop head must be inserted into the wall at least the width of one brick, and you must ensure that enough strongboys and props are used to distribute the weight and take the load safely. You must check the condition of all of the prop heads and props before you use them, and if you find a fault or suspect a fault, do not use them. Instead, seek a replacement. Only remove the props if you are sure that the wall no longer needs them as support. If you do not understand how to use them, then do not use them. We can also supply acrow props in a range of sizes.

    You can book strongboy hire online or over the phone and then collect the strongboys from your local store at the start of the hire, or we can deliver them to you. You must wear all appropriate protective clothing whilst using strong boys and adjustable props, including steel toe-capped boots, gloves, a safety helmet and a dust mask.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.


If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
