Magnetic tool safely lifts and removes manhole covers to reduce worker strain
By using lifting tool, 1 worker can lift or replace up to 36-in.-dia. manhole covers. Eliminates the use of pry bars, as well as back injuries caused by manual lifting. Contains permanent magnets that penetrate textured and patterned surfaces often found on manhole covers. Magnets attach to adjustable spreader beam that fits manhole cover. Each magnet can lift up to 660 lbs. on thick, smooth surfaces, plus offers ON-OFF operation. Once magnets are attached, use a crane, hitch-hoist, or dolly to move manhole cover.
