Safety equipment: Manhole cover and drainage grate removal made safe, efficient

Safety equipment: Rock Mills Enterprises introduces the Lifter PLUS to safely and efficiently remove manhole covers and drainage grates. The Lifter PLUS complements and builds on the success of the existing Lifter. In most cases, removing covers and grates is as simple as pushing a button on a remote control.

The Lifter PLUS is introduced to meet a market demand for a more powerful Lifter. The Lifter PLUS delivers 3,500 lbs. of magnetic gripping capacity. This added capacity directly addresses the need for a more powerful tool to remove very heavy covers that may also have rib and lettering designs. The added magnetic gripping capacity allows the magnet to compensate for reduced surface contact area and deliver exceptional lifting capability.

The Lifter PLUS comes with the two options now available with The Lifter. It is offered with or without the roadway camera and dash monitor. In addition, Rock Mills Enterprises is introducing a new 30 in. Swing Arm with 600 lbs of load capacity. This addresses the demand for a Swing Arm with longer reach and greater load capacity.

Rock Mills Enterprises is an innovator in manhole cover and drainage grate removal safety products. Heavy manhole covers and grates expose workers to injury and the associated high costs to employers.
