Our PL2500 Pipe Lifting Tongs uses the power of gravity to allow the scissor action of this lifter to clamp securely on PVC, iron or concrete pipe. If you have ever tried moving heavy pipe using straps or teacups, you’ll appreciate how the Pipe Lift increases productivity. One operator can use these pipe lifting tongs to grab, lift and move pipe without assistance.
Double your production output versus the sling and chain methods with 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 pipe grabber tongs down over the pipe. The legs will automatically grab and hold on tightly until the pipe is set down firmly into position.
This 2500 pound capacity lifter will handle outside diameter pipe sizes from 14.00 – 23.00 inches. Lifts 14″, 16″, 18″ and 20″ DI and C900 PVC or RCP 12″, 15″ and 18″.
*The tongs are rubber lined (unless otherwise instructed by customer) to ensure a secure grip on the smooth surfaces.
