A Hovmand lifter with the right equipment makes it possible for you to lift and move almost all kinds of reels – large and small, short and long – up to 300 kilos.
Using larger reels means reduction of necessary reel changes. You save time, because one person can do the work and you avoid downtime.

In most cases, your Hovmand lifter will increase your efficiency and minimize costs at the same time.
Using a Hovmand lifter makes it possible to:
We provide you with an intelligent range of reel lifting and moving options: from lifters for the most basic handling of large and small reels with a boom or V-block over specialized designs that grips the roll by the core and rotates it. Or a lifter that grips the reel from the outside and turns it around, manually or electrically, as well as purpose-built lifters for tool changes in your production process.
Many commodities are packaged, stored and distributed in drums, containers and cans. There are also large numbers of manufacturing processes where drums, vats, containers, kettles and pots are lifted and emptied.
With a lifter you can grip the container, run it over to the work place and lift, rotate, tip and drain in one single operation instead of first moving the container, lifting it and finally tipping it. This provides savings in time and reduces other equipment investments.
With lifters you can lift heavy items without help, complex geometries, warm and cold containers, etc. And you can handle different items and sizes with the same equipment, simplify and streamline filling and lift even higher.
Hovmand lifters can grip, lift and tip almost any kind of container, i.e. drum, pot, kettle or vat. They can be taken from the floor and lifted. The grippers can be designed to handle difficult and complex shapes as well as different materials such as steel, plastic and cardboard.
Even small buckets can become heavy loads for an employee when they often need to be lifted or carried back and forth. Hovmand also provides various lifting equipment for this requirement: Host lifts with electric grippers, but also simpler, less expensive tools such as the crane arm, which can be equipped with different slings, ropes or straps for handling buckets and other containers. Using a lifting trolley with a crane arm can be the required smart solution for the loads which do not have standard dimensions.
For your containers with irregular shapes, such as drums, buckets or jerrycans, Hovmand has now developed a solution which makes ergonomics even more affordable: Buckets and drums are strapped onto a lifting device with a strap which functions according to the principle of a car strap and can be loosened and independently rolls up again. When re-tensioning, two load-bearing rollers which are pressed against the container, secure it against falling down. A manually operated turning device enables the containers to be tilted sideways to precisely fill the contents into other containers.
Three solutions in one single device, Hovmand's mobile jerrycan refilling aid provides solutions for you. This makes it easy to lift, transport and even precisely refill canisters into other containers. The Jerrycan refilling aid is available in two versions: the cost-effective GO JERRYCAN version with a volume from 15-25 litres as well as the canister refilling aid based on our IMPACT 130 or IMPACT 90 model. The latter provides a wide range of options tailor-made to your needs.
If you want to place heavy canisters in a stationary filling station, then a Hovmand lifting trolley with a flexible crane arm system is a good solution in order to transport the canisters away from the storage location and move them into the filling station without any effort. A crane arm can be utilised to hold canisters by slings on the carrying handles and also to lift them on surfaces.
