Comparison between the traditional pit lifting method vs the Italifter equipment.
Image 1. Traditional pit lifting tool

The current tooling being used by in image 1 requires staff to manually loosen the pit cover, before using a hook to remove it as seen in the image.
Both components of this set up provide opportunity for lower back strain or injury, especially when done repetitively throughout the course of the day. Current research supports the notion that decreasing time in forward flexion will reduce both the onset and recurrence of lower back pain.
The Italifter apparatus requires significantly less time in forward flexion (primarily for set up of equipment), where the pit lifting component is performed with the trunk in an upright position. From an ergonomic stand point, workers are able to remain in a more supported position for the duration of the lift. Due to the longer lever arm (Image 2.), the force required to perform the pit lift is also significantly less. The traditional pit lifting tool requires the entire weight of the lid to be lifted by hand.
In regards to manual pit lifting/ handling, the equipment offered by Mass Products will decrease loading through the lower back and reduce the risk of a lower back injury, when compared to the traditional pit lifting equipment.
