PL1500 PIPE LIFT – Patent: 6012752
The PL1500 Pipe Lift is our smallest vertical pipe lifting clamp, but it still handles the big jobs. The pipe lifting tong reverses the power of gravity using scissor action to clamp securely on PVC, iron or concrete pipe. If you have ever tried to move pipe using straps or teacups, you’ll appreciate how the Pipe Lift increases productivity. One operator can use these vertical pipe lifting clamps to grab, lift and move pipe without assistance.
Double your production output versus the sling and chain methods with vertical pipe lifting clamps. The Pipe Lift’s unique, wide scissor-grip design permits a secure lift – even when the pipe is not centered. The machine operator simply sets the tongs down onto the pipe and the legs automatically grab on tightly. They won’t release until the pipe has been set back down firmly into position.
This 1500 pound capacity lifter will handle outside diameter pipe sizes from 4.50 inches to 9.05 inches. It can lift 4″, 6″, and 8″ PVC, STEEL, Ductile Iron or C900 PVC.
*The tongs are rubber lined to ensure a secure grip on the smooth surfaces.
