Watch the LifterSM Video

The Lifter is the only manhole cover removing system that allows the individual to remove the cover quickly and easily without leaving the vehicle. The cover can be moved in the time it would take to get out of the truck. The Lifter can easily be installed onto any vehicle that has a 2″ mounted receiver.

Take a look at
The LifterSM testimonials.





Using the camera and monitor as
a guide, the magnet is positioned
over the manhole cover.


At the touch of a wireless remote,
the magnet is lowered onto the
cover, then activated.


The cover can now be raised
and moved to any location.
