The new Manhole PowerArm™ makes lifting and replacing manhole covers easier than ever. Just drive within 3' of the center of the manhole cover and let the PowerArm adjust to your location. The "Arm" has a 3', 180° swing radius that allows the positioning of the magnet to the center of the manhole cover.
The deep reaching strength of our rare earth magnets (sold separately) penetrates textured surfaces often found on manhole covers. Once the magnet is centered, turn the magnet to the "lock-on" position and use the winch to start lifting the manhole cover. When the manhole cover is clear from its rim, swing the cover away. Reverse the steps to replace the manhole cover.
