The perfect tool for all those who have to open manhole covers, covers of oil separators, gas, water, cable shafts or similar. Our proven professional equipment is easy to work with and helps to provide backache. A wide variety of accessories makes our cover lifters the perfect instrument for every challenge.  Different hooks for nearly every kind of keyholes are available as well as powerarms for opening dirty and tight covers.

A high degree of leverage can be reached without much trouble and makes it easy to lift the lid and move it out of the manhole. The opening and moving a sewer or manhole cover is a piece of cake. In reality we have been able to move very large and heavy covers with a diameter up to 150 cm with the Tandem 260 with ease. Due to small dimensions, robust construction and durability of stainless steel, the lid lifters are important helpers.

We offer different manhole cover lifters with a wide variety of hooks for nearly every kind of covers.
