Forklift Drum Rotator

+ Add to Quote Request

The Forklift Drum Rotator range is designed to lift and move 205-litre steel drums over 360-degrees rotation. An operator requires minimal effort, as the drum is fully controlled by the forklift during its operation. A robustly-constructed device, our Forklift Drum Rotators feature large ‘worm-drive’ gearboxes, which provide automatic braking during rotation. If a worker stops using, turning the handle or pulling the hand chain, the drum will lock into position. This unique mechanism prevents dangerous and uncontrolled movements, unlike other cheaper drum rotators, which are known to put users at risk.

The drum rotators are available in two models:

  • Model DDRNH  – (with handle) is suitable for drum rotation when raised up to chest height. The rotation is carried out via a fitted hand wheel.
  • Model DDRNC – (with chain) is suitable for drum rotation up to 3 metres above ground. The rotation is carried out using a hand chain – similar to a roller door mechanism.
