The development of the Transformer Saf-T-Lift was born from the need to safely handle equipment.Using rope slings or cables and guessing where to balance the load has resulted in damaged equipment and injuries to workers.Some transformer companies will not warranty their equipment if it is installed using slings instead of an approved method such as the Transformer Saf-T-Lift.
The Transformer Saf-T-Liftenables the user to safely lift and/or install transformers, capacitor banks, electrical pole mount and pad mount transformers, switches in substations, arrestors, MVA transformer insulators, lift vault lids, vault grates, manhole lids and many other uses.
Material and Accessories:
The Transformer Saf-T-Lift is made of aircraft aluminum.64” and 48” in length and can be ordered with or without lifting nylon straps.The nylon straps come with metal D-rings to reduce abrasion and wear and tear on the nylon strap at the attachment points.ODT can custom build the Transformer Saf-T-Lift to meet your specific needs.
The Transformer Saf-T-Lifts have a 4 to 1 safety factor with working load limits of 10,000 pounds for the 48” and 8,400 pounds for the 64” Saf-T-Lift.Each unit will have a product (model) number and the load limit embossed into the aluminum.
The Transformer Saf-T-Lift is designed with two plates connected with 1” stabilizing spacers and bolts to provide increased rigidity which reduces the potential for overloading resulting in damage to the device and equipment.There are 21 attachment points on each side of the device providing excellent adjustment capabilities for the user.
Lift large loads due to the design of load to work ratio
The ability to relocate the lifting points for safer lifting
The ability to balance the load
Designed to be used with a crane or fork lift
The 2 point lifting system will remove the stress load off the equipment thereby eliminating damage to the equipment and providing a safe working environment for the worker. When a single point lifting device is used, the potential for crushing the equipment exists and is a potential hazard for the worker.
