New Magnetic Manhole Cover Lifts Significantly Reduce Back Strain and Increase Safety!

News from Industrial Magnetics, Inc.


Industrial Magnetics, Inc. introduces a revolutionary new product that allows manhole covers to be moved and replaced quickly, safely and magnetically by one person. The new, patent-pending Magnetic Manhole Cover Lift System will significantly reduce injuries and disabilities caused by traditional prying and lifting of manhole covers. The Magnetic Manhole Cover Lift System’s two, deep-reaching PowerLift® Rare Earth Magnets attached to a spreader bar and lift dolly, allows one operator to lift and move up to a 36” diameter, heavily textured manhole cover with ease without twisting or straining of the back. Smaller manhole covers with smooth-surfaced centers can easily be lifted by removing the Spreader Bar and using one PowerLift® Magnet.
