Valley Craft’s Fully Powered Drum Lifts and Rotators simplify the lifting, rotating and transporting of drums by utilizing power. Drums lift up to 90” in height (78” or 90” models available) in less than 30 seconds, rotate up to 360° continuously in either direction at 6 RPM, and drive up to 2.5 MPH. Compatible with all drum styles (steel, plastic and fiber), drum handling and maneuvering has never been easier.
Power source is a 24V system featuring (2) 12V DC batteries and an AC charger (included) that plugs into any standard outlet using an extension cord (not included). This premium system includes an adjustable drive system of 1-2.5 MPH (default set to 2.5 MPH) and an ergonomic Curtis TM-1 Tiller head for simple handling. Tiller handle features keyed on/off, reverse, adjustable throttle, rocker switches, horn and a battery indicator light.
Units are available in either a Grip (Roto-Grip) or Strap (Roto-Lift) configuration to fit your need and budget. The Grip configuration combines jaws with a hydraulic actuator to grab drums (18-28”), and has an adjustable pressure gauge to ensure a secure grip. The Strap configuration utilizes the included straps to safely secure drums (14-28”). With a 1,000 lb. capacity it is simple to maneuver units on (2) 6” front rigid casters and (1) 12” rear power drive wheel. Designed as a standalone lift and rotator, forklift assistance is not required.
Both straddle and counter-weighted models are available to fit your application. Standard straddle units have extended front legs that go under pallets/shelving or on the outside of the drums when being handled. Counter-weighted models improve handling with the ability to butt directly up to pallets, shelving, or other units without having to worry about extended straddle legs getting in the way. Optional floor locks are available (sold separately).
Valley Craft’s Drum Lifts and Rotators, Roto-Lift and Roto-Grip models, improve the safety and productivity of any facility that is lifting, rotating, and transporting drums by eliminating the need for heavy manual assistance. Constructed of heavy gauge steel with a premium powder coat finish, you can be confident these units are built to last. All products are shipped fully assembled, and are made in the U.S.A.
