This Hydraulic Drum Rotator effortlessly lifts and rotates 205-litre drums. As a reliable drum handling solution, it easily facilitates reliable and safe emptying or disposal of contents. For use with an existing forklift, the forklift hydraulics aid the drum rotation and the action is controlled by the third function lever.

Model DDCR features a heavy-lift capacity and can handle drums weighing up to 1000 kg. The Chain Belly Strap and eccentric lock hold the drum firmly and securely into position. This ensures the drum is supported during movement. If handling plastic drums, this device can be supplied as a Plastic Barrel Option (Model DDCR-PBO). 

The Hydraulic Drum Rotator is commonly used in food processing, recycling, waste management, mining and warehouse industries and makes for a great hydraulic attachment.
