Gas Cylinder Lifter (Counterbalance)

DTP08-150kg- R500-CA10

This counterbalance gas cylinder lifter is popular for use in narrow workspaces. The design eliminates the need for outlying legs in front of the machine, enabling operators to place cylinders in areas that would otherwise be difficult to access. The unit features a manual-hydraulic hand pump which allows the gas bottles to be lifted to height. This model has a safe working load (SWL) of 150kg which can be increased if needed.

Key product features

Cylinder securing head

Clamping band on the cylinder lifter secure a gas bottle at height.

Cylinder securing head

The unit is fitted with a rubber support pad to suit gas bottles with diameters between 190mm to 320mm. The operator secures the cylinder in place against the pad using a ratchet and strap mechanism before lifting and manoeuvring into place. The rubber pads provide additional grip between the cylinder and support pad ensuring the load is held securely throughout the handling operation. To detach the cylinder the ratchet mechanism is released, this is done by pulling the ratchet lever and rotating the handle forwards.

Manual hydraulic pump

Manual hand pump on the gas cylinder lifting unit.

Manual hydraulic pump

This machine makes use of a 17cc hydraulic hand pump to raise the load. Operators move the handle back and forth to pump hydraulic fluid to the lift ram from the tank. To lower the cylinder down a manual release handle is twisted anti-clockwise; this returns hydraulic fluid back to the tank from the lift ram. We use only the highest quality hydraulic components to ensure long-term reliability. Each hydraulic system is assembled by hand and hydraulic hoses are cleaned before use to ensure system cleanliness.

Chemical-resistant wheels

Wheels at the rear of the counterbalance cylinder lifter.

Chemical-resistant wheels

This machine is fitted with five wheels in total: two 160mm front wheels, two rear 100mm outrigger castors for stability and a single 160mm rear steering wheel. All wheels fitted are aluminium centred and have a hard polyurethane tyre which is very robust. The wheels are resistant against oil making them ideal for use in harsh industrial environments. Due to the precision bearings used, these wheels make for a low rolling resistance when used on a flat and level floor.

ATEX-certified model for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 (optional)

Counterbalance cylinder lifter holds a gas bottle at height in an ATEX zoned environment.

ATEX-certified model for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 (optional)

Within certain industries, explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres exist; these areas are classified as ATEX. We provide fully-certified ATEX cylinder lifters for use in these hazardous areas. 


Our DTP08-150kg-R500-CA10-Ex is suitable for gas and dust classified spaces: Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22. The cylinder handler is manufactured to ensure electrical continuity, a path to ground is always present. We supply our ATEX units with a manufacturer’s EU Declaration of Conformity.
