Side-Shift Drum/Barrel Lifter


Product Code: DTP04-R500-1250 (Ex)

The Side-Shift drum lifter is designed for moving drums and barrels from any position on a pallet. This unit is suitable for lifting plastic or steel drums from 13 Gallons (50 liters) to 55 Gallons (205 liters). It uses a sliding side-shift arrangement allowing it to even be used for moving containers and drums placed in the center of a pallet.


The side shift drum lifter straddles the pallet and only requires access to one side, thus allowing pallets in confined areas to be kept against the wall even when unloading. When moving the drum onto another pallet, scales or the floor, the drum can also be moved to either side using the side-shift arrangement.
