ERGONOMIC CYLINDER LIFT
Load, Unload, and Move Cylinders Quickly and Easily Without Destroying Your Back
No bending. No lifting. No messy hydraulics. No batteries and no electronics.
It’s portable, fast and easy to use. And it’s Made in the USA.
Made by a welder, for a welder.
Why We Built This:
We built this because we own a welding business and move cylinders. Sure we’re strong and capable, – we feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime but our bodies are probably more like Homer Simpson, and we can lift and roll cylinders as quick as an Indy 500 pit crew can change tires, but it didn’t make it easier. Lifting, loading and unloading cylinders is tough, especially as we get older, or feel older by throwing out our backs lifting cylinders. Those things are heavy. We didn’t like the strain it put on our backs and on our crew, so we looked around for solutions.
Hydraulics were too messy and maintenance heavy. The battery powered electronic ones looked good but the batteries wear out, plus they were so expensive. Dollies were fine for carting cylinders around the shop, but it didn’t help lifting, loading and unloading them. There was nothing that fit what we wanted. It had to be portable, fast and easy to use. With tires that won’t go flat.
We’re engineers and welders by trade so we made one. The first one wasn’t the greatest. Several versions later we nailed it.
We call it the ECL – Ergonomic Cylinder Lift. It uses our patented through body counterbalance technology. Check it out in action. See the video below and then scroll down to see how we came up with the name.
It easily lifts cylinders, articulates them vertical to horizontal and back, and is ergonomic. So we called it the Ergonomic Cylinder Lift (ECL). Pretty creative name right? Hey we’re welders and engineers by trade, so we went with the creative name.
We used the ECL and our guys loved it. Companies we worked with, when they saw the ECL they wanted one. And that’s how we started and grew. We are proud that welders use it not because they’re forced to and it’s OSHA required (it’s not but it should be), but they use it by choice. That makes us happy, because that’s why we made it. When we found out how many other types of business use cylinders we were even happier we were helping them too.
Buy it. You’ll love it. We did.
And we kept the price low so everyone can afford one. It’s $1395. Compare that to $2500 to $4000 for other hydraulic or electrical units, and I think that’s a pretty good deal. Plus we’ll ship it to you anywhere in the continental U.S.A.
Plus it’s going to save you some workers comp. Lifting and moving cylinders exerts over 1,500 lbs of force on the lumbar spine and discs. This causes unnecessary strain and potential worker’s compensation cases. The ECL is the solution to take these risks out of the equation. Now a 100 lb. cylinder can be moved around with ease, requiring forces no greater than 20 pounds. The best part is there is no bending required. It works so well we went on and made different size ECL’s to handle bigger cylinders and propane tanks. We have three different models now.
The ECL is a unique handcart that can move cylinders without lifting or rolling the cylinder. Just clamp, tilt and roll. Once you get the cylinder to the desired place simply tilt the cylinder back using one hand, roll the cart forward to place the cylinder on the surface. Lift the cylinder by the cap to the desired height and unload.
Some of our ambulance friends like to load their cylinders horizontal with valve first, so we developed a method to do this.

Here’s some numbers that you might find interesting:
Dr. Brendon Bradley, a practicing chiropractor with more than 20 years of experience treating thousands of people with lower back injuries said:
“When treating a person suffering lower back pain it is always important to determine any activities that could have caused the injury. Often it is discovered that a person has a job or activity that is performed on a regular basis that is creating a repetitive stress injury to their lower back.
Lifting and moving cylinders exerts over 1,500 lbs of force on the lumbar spine and discs. This causes unnecessary strain and potential worker’s compensation cases. According to a study done by Cornell University, “More than one million workers suffer back injuries annually, and these account for one in five workplace injuries (Bureau of Labor Statistics). 80% of these injuries are to the low back (lumbar spine). Back injuries cost the US economy billions of dollars each year.”
The worst movement or lift for a low back in terms of injury is forward flexion, twisting and then lifting. These three forces are extremely damaging to the discs between the vertebrae within the lower spine. Picking a heavy cylinder off of the ground up onto a truck is a perfect example of these devastating forces. The force exerted on the lumbar spine and discs with this type of lift exceed 1500 lbs. The ECL is the solution to take these risks out of the equation. Now a 100 lb. cylinder can be moved around with ease, requiring forces no greater than 20 pounds. The best part is there is no bending required.“

THE ERGONOMIC CYLINDER LIFT IS ONE OF A KIND, AND HERE'S WHY.
Avoid common back injuries that occur from moving items that are too heavy .
Prevent workplace accidents and potential disasters with built-in safety precautions.
Keep all those limbs as they are and all those cylinders where they belong.
Never worry about anything flying through the air or shooting through a wall.
