Bucket lifting bags are used to lift and transport buckets and plastic trugs / tubs to higher levels.
When using a bucket with a metal handle or a trug with plastic handles, they can be difficult to lift to a height as you need both hands to climb up a ladder safely. Also the handles on these types of buckets don't generally last, especially under the heavy duty use they endure.
A bucket lifting bag alleviates both of these issues. Firstly when placed into the lifting bag it is the lifting sling within the bag which lifts the weight, therefore saving the strain on the bucket handle, it also leaves both hands free to climb safely, as a hoisting of pulley system will be lifting the bag to where it is needed. Another benefit is that your bucket can still be lifted even if the handles are broken.
We have three bucket lifting bags in this range, a 14 litre, a 26 litre and a 40 litre. The 2 smaller ones have a safe working load of 30kg whilst the largest can handle up to 60kg.
Each bag comes with the standard lifting sling which is incorporated into the bag through sling channels, enabling perfect stability and easy inspection of the complete sling.
There is a choice of a hard tray base or a softer protective boot to provide extra protection to the base of the lifting bag. Each bag has replaceable parts and a 2 year guarantee against manufacturers defects.
