One person can safely lift and move heavy gas cylinders around the job floor with two Strong Hand Tools (Santa Fe Springs, CA) products.
Featuring comfort-grip handles and heavy-duty steel construction for durability, the Gas Grabber provides a no-slip hold for one or two people lifting a cylinder. The eight-point contact and friction pads hold the cylinder while scissor-action handles automatically engage for secure lifting. Release the handles, and the Gas Grabber stays in position on the cylinder, ready for use.
The second product, a four-wheeled cart, enables one person to easily maneuver cylinders around the work area and safely lift and place them onto welding carts, pallets, or other elevated platforms 7 inches high. Adjustable stainless steel bar holds the cylinder securely in place without damaging, hard-to-use chains or straps.
A third Strong Hand Tools product is a plasma cutting tray that attaches to the Rhino Cart for greater versatility in mobile or stationary cutting, welding, and fabrication. Cut, clamp, fixture, and weld on one convenient mobile work station at the ideal, uniform working height.
The tray supports 100 pounds on the 18-by-30-inch cutting surface with 14 reversible/replaceable steel slats. Generous 1.8-inch width between cutting slats provides ample space for hold-down clamping. Slats are “pinched” into place to maintain rigidity. The tray folds down flat against the cart when not in use.
