The PowerArm™ makes grate lifting easier than ever. Drive within 3ft of the center of the grate and let the PowerArm™ adjust to your location. The “Arm” has a 3ft, 180° swing radius and a double jointed elbow that allows the positioning of the magnet (sold separately) in the center of the grate. Once magnet is centered, turn magnet to  “lock-on” position and use winch control to start lifting the grate.  When grate is clear from its rim, swing the grate away. Reverse the steps to replace the grate.
