Rock Mills Enterprises has introducted the new Lifter PLUS, which complements and builds on the success of the existing Lifter. The Lifter is designed to safely and efficiently remove manhole covers and drainage grates. In most cases, removing covers and grates is as simple as pushing a button on a remote control.

The Lifter PLUS is introduced to meet a market demand for a more powerful Lifter. It delivers 3,500 pounds of magnetic gripping capacity. This added capacity directly addresses the need for a more powerful tool to remove very heavy covers that may also have rib and lettering designs. The added magnetic gripping capacity allows the magnet to compensate for reduced surface contact area and deliver extra lifting capability.

The Lifter PLUS comes with the two options now available with the Lifter. It is offered with or without the roadway camera and dash monitor. In addition, the company is introducing a new 30-inch Swing Arm with 600 pounds of load capacity. This addresses the demand for a Swing Arm with longer reach and greater load capacity.
