Find out how they put the Kenco Rocklift to work in episode 7 “The Graboid®” on our blog.
Never before has there been a safer and easier way to move large rocks than with the Kenco Rocklift. The Rocklift is a triple tine mechanical grapple that requires no hydraulics to operate. These rock lifting tongs are fully automatic and give the operator complete control to grip or release a load. The three serrated tines contacting the load allow for a very stable lift cycle every time.
Once the operator lowers the rock into place, the lifting tong’s center tube can be lowered to engage the internally-housed actuator. Once this actuation occurs, the operator can begin lifting the Rocklift. As the tines become free, it will slide back to the default open position to allow for next lift cycle. The Rocklift also excels at picking up brush and debris, especially in hard to reach places such as deep ditches or ravines. Rock lifting tongs are an extremely versatile attachment that allows contractors the ability to make easy work out of otherwise difficult tasks.
The Rocklift is available in models to handle capacities of 3,000, 6,000 and 12,000 pounds, with custom models also available. Height restrictions may apply.
