Lifting road plates with magnets increases productivity and safety. At Encore, we are all about saving our customers money and keeping our operators safe. Using a heavy duty magnet, we can easily grab hold of these heavy road plates, and not have to worry about pinch points.

Road plates can create many hassles and hazards during lifting and transport. Sometimes the operator cannot jimmy a hook into the normal location, or they have to jack up on end and shimmy the plate several times before a sling or chain can be properly placed. Also, snow, ice, and rust can make the lift even more difficult. When using a heavy duty magnet, we remove a lot of the hassles and hazards.

Placing the heavy road plates is easy and accurate with the magnet.

One of our operators told us that using the magnet saved him well over an hour during his day. Not only did it save him time, but it made his job safer too. He didn’t place his fingers in harms way.
