The manhole cover lifter is designed to remove manhole covers from sump wells above underground petroleum tanks. It can remove manhole covers with lift handles or recessed handles. It also comes with a “J” hook attachment to remove manhole lids with no handles. To remove a manhole cover with no handle there must be a 1/4″ hole through the manhole cover. The “J” hook attachment is used by placing the lower part into the manhole and attaching the upper part to the lifter.
This manhole cover lifter is 5 feet when in use, and folds to 3 feet for easy storage. It weighs 7 lbs.
Special features include:
- All steel construction
