Gas Cylinder Lifter
The Gas Cylinder lifter trolley is designed for the transportation and lifting of heavy gas cylinders on and off welding machines. This unique cylinder trolley is designed to accommodate heavy Argon and Argon mixed gas cylinders from the storage rack to the welding machine. Once at the welding machine the cylinder lifter has a clever pivot system that allows the operator to place the cylinder directly onto the welding machine cylinder carrier, with no lifting and very little effort.
Safely lifts cylinders onto platforms up to 250mm high.
Max Cylinder weight SWL 100kg (230mm diameter cylinder)
250mm diameter puncture proof microcellular foam wheels, for easy transportation on most terrains.
50mm wide nylon safety strap with comfort grip ratchet buckle.
Anti-slip foot grip.
The handle is fitted with vinyl nubbed grip for additional comfort and grip.
Heavy duty powder coated steel construction.
The Manual handling operations regulations 1992 recommend a maximum lifting weight of 25kg for a man and 16kg for a women. A large size Argon or Mixed gas cylinder can weigh in the region of 80 kg which exceeds the recommended weight to be lifted. This is why the so called " bear hug" technique has often been one of the only ways to lift the cylinder onto position on the welding set. The cylinder lifter is a cost effect and safe lifting aid that helps to eliminate any possible health and safety issues whilst removing and replacing heavy gas cylinders. The cylinder lifter reduces the risk of back or muscular injury which can be caused by the traditional method of churning and bear hugging a gas cylinder.
