Allegro (Piedmont, SC) has announced the Allegro Magnetic Valve Box Lid Lifter Series featuring lightweight stainless steel and aluminum construction. These portable lid lifters are specifically designed to eliminate the need to bend over when lifting and removing cast iron utility and valve box covers reducing added strain to your back and body. The powerful rare earth magnet creates a magnetic field that penetrates texture surfaces of lids and allows the operator to ergonomically lift the casting out of the way reducing back, toe, and finger injuries. The Deluxe model has a lifting capacity of 75 lbs (34.0 kg) and our Standard model lifting capacity is 50 lbs (22.7 kg). These Allegro Magnetic Valve Box Lid Lifters also feature a locking On/Off handle for safety and makes removing covers quick and easy at the work site.
