Drum Chime Tong Spreaders

A gang lifter consisting of Drum Chime Tongs assembled on a spreader for handling a number of drums at each lift. Drums are lifted in the vertical or upright position.

The tongs must be manually placed but may be automatically released from the drums by moving the spreader a short distance endwise.

The load may be handled by the central lifting eye where close headroom is a factor. For better balance, a sling may be attached to the end lugs which are provided on the spreader.
