Mechanical Manhole Cover Lifter

  • The mechanical manhole cover lifter releases even seized manhole covers very easily and with little force.
  • Lifting manhole covers out of the frame by hand using hooks is a very difficult undertaking, e.g. for municipal construction yard employees.
  • With weights of up to 70 kg, it is certainly not recommended even with 2 people, for ergonomic reasons.
  • With the new SDH-M-10 mechanical manhole cover lifter from Probst, however, you can relieve your employees and improve efficiency.
  • For lifting out manhole covers of diameter up to Ø900 mm and maximum hook spacing of 590mm.
  • The hook spacing is continuously adjustable.
  • To lift out a manhole cover, so-called “keys” are inserted into two holes in the manhole cover (Supplied seperately).
  • These keys can now be held by the “hooks” of the manhole cover lifter.
  • Can be combined with spreader bars for lifting split covers.
  • By tilting the SDH-M-10 with the handle, the manhole cover is lifted.
  • Seized covers can be loosened easily with 2 foldout feet (lifting spindles) on the sides.
  • To do this, the feet are placed on the ground and with a crank, the manhole covers, can now be pushed out.
  • The handle can be adjusted in length and dismantled entirely for transportation.
  • In addition, the angle of the handle can be altered.
  • Optionally available is the SDH-M-10-LHM-400 permanent lifting magnet with slot on SDH-M-10 for lifting cast steel and cast iron manhole covers.
  • Keys and spreader bars also have to be ordered separately.
