Truck Mounted Manhole Cover Lift

For Immediate Release: Posted On 5/14/2008 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Significantly reduce back strain and increase employee safety when lifting and replacing manhole covers with IMI’s new truck mounted Manhole PowerArm™.

No more heavy, manual lifting! Just drive within 3 feet of the center of the manhole cover and the PowerArm™ adjusts to your location with a 3ft., 180° swing radius and a double-jointed elbow that allows the positioning of the magnet in the center of the manhole cover. Once the magnet is centered and turned to the “lock-on” position, use the winch control to lift the manhole cover from the rim and away from the opening.

The PowerArm™ allows quick, easy access to manhole openings and minimizes lifting concerns for an aging or gender diverse workforce. Ideal for survey or pumper crews, the PowerArm™ folds to the bumper for easy transportation and fast setup. With welded, tubular steel construction and a 400 lb. lifting capacity, the PowerArm™ fits into a standard 2” square trailer hitch and is available with an electric or manual winch control.
