Drum Lifting Rotators

+ Add to Quote Request

These Drum Rotators are designed to lift and rotate 205 litre steel drums through 360 degrees using either overhead crane or forklift. Rotation of the drum is fully controlled throughout the operation. There are 2 versions: the 400kg DBR and the 1000kg DCDR.

Minimum effort is required for rotation and importantly the use of a large worm drive gearbox provides automatic braking of the drum during rotation – if the operator stops turning the handle or pulling the hand chain the drum will lock in position preventing dangerous and uncontrolled drum movement as seen on cheap devices.

The large size of the gearbox also greatly improves the life of the attachment reducing gearbox failure. The drum is secured into the Drum Dumper attachment with the sturdy belly strap and locked with the over-centre catch. A locking pin is inserted to prevent the accidental release of the catch during the tipping cycle.
