Cherne Launches Heavy Duty Poly Lift Line with Added Strength and Durability

Featuring a heavy duty spiral wrap, stainless steel hardware and fittings, and zinc-plated steel hooks, the new lift line can perform in even the harshest of environments


SHAKOPEE, MN, FEBRUARY 14, 2023 — Cherne Industries, part of the Oatey Co. family of companies, today introduced its Heavy Duty Poly Lift Line, engineered to outlast the harshest environments as pipe plugs are inflated or deflated.  

Available in lengths ranging from 10-50 feet, Cherne’s Heavy Duty Poly Lift Line is thoughtfully designed with a 3/8-inch heavy duty inside diameter hose covered with an industrial grade heavy duty spiral wrap. Its hardware and fittings are made of stainless steel, and a heavy duty rubber cover protects the line’s gauge. The lift line comes with clear coated zinc plated steel hooks, as well as industrial quick disconnects.

“The durability of a poly lift line can be critical to ensuing a job is done efficiently, safely and correctly – particularly in extreme environments,” says Cassie Alverson, Product Manager at Cherne. “We’re excited to introduce the heavy duty version of our poly lift line to accommodate more contractors and jobsite conditions around the world.”
