- Automatic Pipe Tongs



Use the power of gravity to allow the scissor action of our pipe lifter to clamp securely on PVC, iron or concrete pipe. If you have ever tried to move pipe using straps or teacups, you’ll appreciate how the Pipe Lift increases productivity. The operator can use these pipe lifting tongs to grab, lift and move pipe without assistance.

Double your production output versus the sling and chain methods with lifting clamps. The Pipe Lift’s unique, wide scissor-grip design permits a secure lift – even when the pipe is not centered.  The machine operator simply sets the tongs down onto the pipe and the legs automatically grab on tightly. They won’t release until the pipe has been set back down firmly into position.


Kenco below the hook lifting products are designed, manufactured and tested in compliance with the latest revisions of the ASME B30.20 and BTH-1 standards and are accepted by OSHA, CanOSHs, as well as virtually all other world wide standards.

Every lifting device is hand tested by our engineering staff before it leaves our facility.


  1. Lifter is latched in open position, ready to lower onto load.
  2. Operator rests lifter on load, which causes actuator to release.
  3. Operator raises hook, causing lifter to grip automatically.
  4. Load is moved to destination and lowered. The operator again rests the lifter on the load, which causes the actuator to automatically latch.
