Lifting the lid on making it easy!

Article by Steve Bielby

Having seen “Arnold” in action lifting a wide range of manhole, duct and trench covers I am convinced that this is a really well designed and well built piece of equipment.


"It is small enough to travel in the back of a van and is easy to put together and light at only 20kg self weight"
It is small enough to travel in the back of a van and is easy to put together and light at only 20kg self weight. By pushing down on the handle this makes it much easier to lift up heavy covers.
I tried the equipment and found it easy to manoeuvre and use. The primary aim under The Manual Handling Regulations is to mechanise lifting wherever possible. This robust yet simple equipment does that brilliantly and will certainly help to reduce the number of back injuries caused by lifting heavy covers. I wish you every success with this excellent piece of kit.
