“We were using lifting shackles and straps to move and stack our bin blocks. We purchased the BLK6K24T30 Bin Block Lifter to make our job easier. It made the process much quicker and took less man power. Before using the bin block lifter, we had one person driving the forklift, one person on the ground and one person on top of the wall connecting and disconnecting our rigging. Once we started using the bin block lifter, we only needed 2 people, one to drive the forklift and one to guide the placement of the block on the wall. At some points like you can see in the video, it was a one man job. We were able to stack 80 bin blocks in a couple of hours which used to take us almost an 8 hour day. If anyone is thinking of using bin blocks in their operation, I would highly recommend the Kenco Bin Block Lifter to help you save time and money.

Thank you for the awesome tool!”
We really like using our new bin block lifter. Safe, easy, and efficient way to move block in place to brace our column forms off to. Thanks for making a great product!
We finally got to use our lift and the guys love it, with multiple operators they all agree it’s the safe way to move the block.
“This attachment makes the work of moving lock blocks safer and more efficient. No more worrying about unsafe lift points or connecting and disconnecting rigging after every lift. Great product.”
The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority (GLRA) is a Lebanon County Authority (Pennsylvania) responsible for the proper management and disposal of Lebanon County’s solid waste and recyclable materials. The GLRA utilizes a series of 14 man-made ponds to treat landfill leachate prior to discharging to a creek that runs through the landfill. Leachate is the water collected from within the landfill that when collected, and requires treatment or pollution reduction prior to discharging it to a stream. Many of these treatment ponds are separated only by a weir structure that controls the water depth and flow from one pond to the next. These ponds have been in-place since the 1970’s and the original weir structures were no longer functional.
The GLRA received a permit by the PA Department of Environmental Protection to replace the existing aluminum weirs with concrete block. The 6’ long, 1,600 lb. blocks needed to be placed on the floor of a pond to complete the 125’ long weir. Using the Kenco 24″ block lifter on an excavator, we were able to place the blocks in a safe and efficient manner required for this project. We had to continuously pump the pond “dry” while working in the mud. Utilizing the Kenco block lifter, we were able to level and construct the weir structure in a timely manner as to not jeopardize the safety of our staff and the treatment process.
