Manhole Lid Lifters
A range of tools for lifting access and manhole covers.
Type 1 – Cast iron cover
- Heavy duty lifter
A heavy duty robust lifter 900 mm long, with the extra length the lifting can be done using body weight.
- Folding lifter (photo A)
Works on the same principal as the heavy duty lifter however folds in half for compact storage (500 mm folded/800 mm extended), ideal for engineers, consultants, etc.
- Tee type lifter (photo B)
A 600 mm long tee type lifter; due to its restricted length this lifter requires a lot of the lifting to be done via the body (knees & back).
- D style lifter (photo C)
A compact unit with a D handle enables a crow bar to be utilised for ease of lifting.
- Spare Keys (photo F)
Both the heavy duty and the folding lifters utilise the same key and are easily replaced if damaged.
Type 2 – G.A.T.I.C covers
- Long Handle Key (photo D)
The long handled version of the AS3996/2006 key makes it easier on the individual to lift and move square and round covers. Not a seal breaker.

This lifter is for seal breaking on Gas & Airtight covers, and lifting of Class B and Class D Solid Top covers to AS3996:2006.
- Crane/Mechanical Lifter
This 4 piece lifter set is for use with recessed/infilled access covers that are too heavy for standard lifter application. Certified by independent examiners this set will handle covers up to 750 kg in weight.
