PL8500 PIPE LIFT – Patent: 6012752
The PL8500 Pipe Lift uses the power of gravity to allow the scissor action of this lifter to clamp securely on PVC, ductile 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 pipe handling clamps 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 tongs of the cement pipe clamp down over the pipe. The legs will automatically grab and hold on tightly until the pipe is set down firmly into position.
This 8500 pound capacity lifter will handle outside diameter pipe sizes from 48.00″ – 59.50″ . Lifts 48″ and 54″ PVC, STEEL, Ductile Iron and C900 PVC or RCP ID sizes: 42″ (52.50″ OD) and 48″ (59.50″ OD).
