Liftomatic Material Handling Inc. of Buffalo Grove, Ill., had expanded its line of drum handling equipment to include a new model, 3A-HD-BHDL, a below-hook drum handling system.
It can be used to lift 55-gallon steel or plastic drums from an overhead position for placement to and from many types of containment devices, scales, pallets of similar handling requirements. Drums remain in a vertical position while lifted and/or transported by the 3A-HD-BHDL.
The unit works with three radial arms that conform to the body of the drum and engage at the underside of the drum chime. It has a working capacity of up to 3,000 pounds. The three-point connection maintains the drum's integrity during the lifting process. An “intuitive lock” engagement system ensures the radial arms remain in a locked position.
The 3A-HD-BHDL can be attached to an overhead lifting hoist, or can be afficed to Liftomatic's model FTB-3 forklift adapter.
