From Concept to Completion
Our custom lifting design begins with a concept, then moves on to our engineering experts. Here, possible solutions are researched and developed to meet the requirements of the application. Once the design and resulting prototype has been finalized, it goes through rigorous testing procedures to ensure worthiness of the Kenco name.
We always strive to exceed the expectations of quality and performance with each and every one of our lifting tools and equipment.
The Creation of the Capstone Lifter
Our engineers are continually working on project-specific lifting accessories. These almost always begin with a customer request to develop a way to increase productivity, and to do it safely. One such request led to the development of the Capstone Lifter.
By using the same technology that has made our Kenco Barrier Lift models so successful, the engineering team designed and built a stone lifting device that spans these much-wider blocks. The original design had a 24″ to 26″ grip with a 1500 capacity. In 2020, it was determined that a higher capacity was needed as some capstone blocks exceeded 1200 pounds. The newest design, along with some minor design improvements, now boasts a 1600 pound capacity with the standard 24″ to 26″ grip range.
Available now as a standard model product.

Dual Box Culvert Lifter
This special single arm lifting device was developed to handle 600 pound capacity – 48 inch wide monument blocks that have an extreme slope on one side. We also offer a standard Monument Lift with a 4″ to 16″ grip.
The specifications for this custom lifting device required that it grip onto cylindrical shapes that were packaged in crates. Minimal clearance was a factor, and the resulting design successfully accomplished this task.
The Pump Housing Lifter was designed specifically to make moving pump housing easier by allowing for hands free lifting and releasing of the pumps. The lifting device sets down and grabs the lip of the pump automatically.
