How much force does Live Scrum Create?

  • At 6 Bar Live Scrum Creates 1 Tonne of pressure per Ram. This is dissipated due to the angle of the ram so we estimate at 6 Bar there is 1600KG of horizontal force, enough to test even the biggest packs.  

Interesting Facts

Designed and engineered to withstand a horizontal force of 1600kg, with each Ram producing over 1 tonne of pressure, the Live Scrum –Scrum Machine is strong enough to take on the biggest packs in international rugby. 

The machines enormous horizontal force creates 900kg of uplift at the front of the leg. This is stabilized with six ground anchor screws that have a hold down capability of 600kg per screw. Alternatively, chemical anchors can be permanently set into a concrete pad.
