Lifting and handling- Easylift

The Easylift lifting device has been hailed by its developer,  ITT Water & Wastewater, as an ideal solution to the dangers of working over open spaces, manholes, sumps and wells.

The product was designed to comply with the Work at Height Regulations when lifting pumps and other equipment from below ground level.  Now the device is being acclaimed as a benefit to any company involved in lifting heavy or awkward materials from below the ground.  

According to the firm, the Easylift has secure support points, located on the main beam, to enable the attachment of fall-arrest equipment to BS EN 360, EN 1496 Class B.

Made from aluminium, the system features adaptable legs, suitable for uneven ground, and adjustment holes on the beam to shorten the footprint if required.

For more information on Easylift, or to arrange an on-site demonstration, call 0115 940 0111 or e-mail [email protected]
