Premium Rim Grip Drum Lifter

A rim grip lifter for use with a forklift truck - fast and safe in operation.

This drum lifter is designed for use in intensive drum handling operations

- loading and unloading containers, palletising and depalletising drums and barrels, indeed anywhere constant drum handling takes place.  

Reliability and long life are assured as this unit has changed little over the last 50 years and many of the original ones are still being used today!

The photograph demonstrates a twin head drum handler lifting one steel and one plastic drum at the same time but units to lift between 1 and 4 drums are available, as are a variety of different heads to handle different drum designs.
