Geared Drum & Barrel Turners

For rotating drums in either direction through 360° for emptying, draining, etc. The totally enclosed worm gear unit provides ample mechanical advantage for turning and holding the heaviest drums in any desired position. The unit may be quickly adjusted for drums from 18 to 24" diameters. The nylon belts will not damage the drum and are easily replaced. Belts are equipped with a ratchet roller binder which will effectively tighten the belts on the drum to any degree required.

Handwheel operation is for use when the turning operation is within reach of the operator (i.e. 210, etc.).

Chain pocket wheel operation is for remote control of the turning operation (i.e. 211, etc). The standard chain pocket assembly is supplied with a chain pocket wheel, chain guide and 12 feet of hand chain.
