Our range of Manhole Lifters, also known as Manhole Cover Lifters, commonly accommodate cast iron and ductile iron G.A.T.I.C covers, but have the capability to virtual lift any manhole covers.
Hydraulic, swinger, and wheeler variants are available, as well as track systems for better maneuverability when on softer surfaces such as grass, preventing your wheels from sinking into the earth surrounding the manhole.
WHY SHOULD I BUY A MANHOLE LIFTER?
Many customers purchase Manhole Cover Lifters and Manhole Ring Lifters in order to prevent their workforce from being susceptible to injuries such as trapped fingers, hands, and feet.
When lifting manually, the user often must loosen the cover to remove any dirt that has solidified the cover in place that hasn’t been removed for long periods of time. This is typically done through hammering or imposing pry bars, which can result in eye and flesh injuries from fragmented metal and earth detaching from the cover.
That’s why we always recommend never to lift covers manually as it's just an accident waiting to happen – think safety first!
