The days of fatigue and back injuries from lifting manhole covers are over.

Manhole covers are manufactured in various shapes, configurations, weights, depth of cover, type of grate, openings or slots for the hook, and numerous different conditions of placement.

Opening a manhole seems like an easy and primitive operation, but in fact involves a number of technical and operational problems, safety issues and a loss of time.

The Italifter range is safe, light, versatile, easily transported and extremely effective. A number of utility authorities and councils Australia wide have already jumped on board and are equipping their work vehicles with what we believe is the safest and most effective tooling in the industry.

Italifters are transportable even on the smallest vehicles with no need for modifications, or any heavy lifting in or out of the vehicle.

The range eliminates dangerous manual handling of cast iron and concrete filled Gatic covers, in turn reducing the instances of back sprain and injury. The productivity of your team will also increase dramatically.

HP Agency is the sole Australian distributor of the innovative Italian made Italifters, and work with each individual client to design custom tooling to suit their area. This is the most complete and versatile manhole cover lifting system on the market today.

HP Agency stock Italifter brand lifter clamps, hooks, magnetic lifters, sliding hammers, lifter carts for heavy manholes, and plastic manhole soundproofing.
