An actuator uses the power of gravity to allow the scissor action of our pipe lifter to clamp securely on PVC, iron, or concrete pipe. If you have ever tried to move pipe using straps or teacups, the Pipe Lift attachment will make a significant impact in overall productivity. The operator is able to use these tongs to grab, lift, and move pipe without assistance.
Double your production output versus the sling and chain methods. The Pipe Lift’s unique, wide scissor-grip design permits a secure lift – even if the pipe has been grasped off its balancing point. This eliminates the requirement to position a sling dead-center. The machine operator simply sets the tongs down onto the pipe and the legs automatically grab on tightly. They won’t release until the pipe has been set back down firmly into position.
