A deceptively simple tool that makes it extremely easy to handle electrical and communication cable drums while reducing the hazards that are inherent in current practices.


Some of the key issues overcome by the LIB when handling cable drums include ....

- reduction in damaged drums,
- lower OH&S issues leading to lower insurance claims and premiums,
- crane operator has less issues in monitoring people around the drum
- improved efficiency in all cable drum handling

The Lift Inverter Bar is available to suit the two most common cable drum sizes ... 6 tonnes max and 12 tonnes max.
Sizes above these are available upon request.

Here’s an independent perspective of the device …
“The development of the Lift Inverter Bar has finally given the construction industry and cable manufacturers a much safer and easier way to handle cable reels which in the past has been both time consuming and hazardous to personnel involved when handling those reels.
I have experienced many game changers in the crane and rigging world over my 35 years in our industry when it comes to rigging gear and the Lift Inverter Bar is definitely the next one! I have personally witnessed the use of the Lift Inverter Bar on the job and highly recommend that you consider using it on your work site!”
