Product description

Simply hang the lifter on a hook from an overhead hoist or crane, position saddle around the drum, raise to the desired height & rotate

Lifting, transporting and dispensing of drums are vital requirements of several industries. Drum lifters can be used to carry out such activities in a competent manner.

Overhead drum lifters are easy-to-use equipment constructed from high-grade material. The lifter can be operated by a single person. The simple technology of the drum rotator and lifter requires hanging the lifter on a hook from an overhead crane or hoist. The operator can then position the saddle around the drum before lifting it to the required height and then rotating it as required, before dispensing it at the desired location.

A three metre long control chain is provided to lock the drum securely in any position during transit and dispensing. The robust drum lifter is ideal for use with steel drums of 210 litre capacity. The drum lifters are CE marked and plated for quality assurance. The lifter has the capacity to bear a load of up to 350 kg. The drum lifter is available with standard or geared chain control features. The drum lifter is a highly useful and efficient item of equipment that can be used across a wide range of industries. There is also a hydraulic drum lifter which may also be of interest.

Customer Questions

guy midwinter - 25 Mar 2019

Q. Hi, can the crane drum lifter be remove when the drum is sitting horizontally with weight off the lifter? best regards guy midwinter

A. This will all depend how the weight is being taken off the drum. To remove the drum from the lifter you'll need access around the middle of the drum to remove the frame and chain.

Anonymous User - 15 Dec 2014

Q. Can you use plastic drums for the crane drum lifters?

A. Unfortunately you cant, they need to be steel.
