Benefits of OdourPro manhole lid-lifters

  • Remove covers of any size, weight or shape
  • Reduce strain/fatigue
  • Reduce injuries and accidents
  • Safely used with no specialist training
  • Versatile
  • Effective
  • Robust
  • Light and compact – easily transportable
  • No need for hooks or screws on cast iron lids

How they work

The manhole lid-lifter range can manage any type of access cover – whether via simple magnetic connection or conventional lifting lug. Each unit works on the same principle – they use smart leverage to make lifting even the heaviest of covers effortless.

The units' magnetic connections attach to cast iron lids. Or for non-ferrous lids (like concrete covers), a range of lifting lugs is available. Thanks to ingenious lever systems, even the heaviest cover can be removed using the correct lifting position (using legs, not back). We even have a variety of leverage tools to further minimise the required lifting force.

And in cases where incrustations block cover frames, we have further tooling available. Again, they're designed so you can carry out the work in a comfortable standing position.

Benefits to clients

With no specialist training or certifications required, OdourPro's manhole and sewer lid-lifters are easy to use. In fact, they make cover removal almost effortless – reducing injuries from strain and accidents.

Because little force and time is required to operate our manhole lid-lifters, the chances of a dropped cover causing injury are also drastically reduced.
