PL2750 PIPE LIFT – Patent: 6012752
The PL2750 Pipe Lift 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 to move pipe using straps or teacups, you’ll appreciate how these pipe lifting tools increase productivity. One operator can use these concrete pipe tongs to grab, lift and move pipe without assistance.
Concrete pipe tongs help you double your production output compared to the sling and chain methods. 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 lifting tools down over the pipe. The legs will automatically grab and hold on tightly until the pipe is set down firmly into position.
The 2750 pound capacity lifting tools will handle outside diameter pipe sizes from 18.00 to 25.80 inches. Lifts 18″ and 24″ PVC and STEEL, or lift 18″, 20″, and 24″ Ductile Iron and C900 PVC or RCP ID sizes: 15″ (19.50″ OD) and 18″ (23.00″ OD).
A rubber liner can be installed at an additional cost to help prevent scratching on the surface of the pipe.
