Horizontal Drum Lifter

Downs Item# 227

A semi-automatic grab for the fast handling of drums in the horizontal position. The various models, as listed below, are suitable for handling from three to six drums each lift.

To pick up a load, the grab must be spotted over the drums and lowered until the hooks engage the drum ends.
