Kenco Monument Lifter offers the easiest way to lift and position cultured stone shapes. In cemetery or other applications where headstones and other heavy monuments are being constantly positioned, this device is not only a great time saver, but this piece of Kenco equipment saves the manpower required of the grounds personnel.
Handling capabilities include both horizontal and vertical applications. It is designed to safely lift, move and place concrete, marble, granite and most other types of monuments. The Monument Lifter has a maximum lifting capacity of 1500 pounds. It works on any machine with the necessary rated lifting capacities to be encountered. It attaches via common rigging(such as our RigMAX) to an excavator, backhoe, truck crane, skid steer, or anything else that will provide the lifting ability.
The Monument Lifter grips automatically as it is lowered onto the monument, and it will not release the stone until it has been set down firmly into position. Kenco equipment elastomer pads ensure a tight grip, even on smoothest of surfaces.
The Monument Lifter has a 4 to 16 inch grip range and a 1500 lb capacity, weighing only 120 pounds.
Our engineers have developed an all-new design, giving this lifter a wider grip range without compromising safety or grip strength. This is achieved by the addition of two separate pivot locations on each leg. Depending on the width required to be lifted, the leg pins are placed into corresponding hole positions. Decals located next to each leg pin identify correct placement. The lower pin position covers grip ranges from 4 inches to 10 inches, while the upper pin position covers grip ranges from 10 inches to 16 inches.
