Valley Craft’s Semi-Powered Drum Lifts and Rotators simplify the lifting and rotating of drums by utilizing power. Drums electronically clamp and lift up to 90” in height (78” or 90” models available) in less than 30 seconds, and can hydraulically rotate up to 360° continuously in either direction. Compatible with all drum styles (steel, plastic and fiber), units offer convenient push/pull transporting as needed.
Units are available in either a Grip (Roto-Grip) or Strap (Roto-Lift) configuration to fit your need and budget. The Grip configuration (Roto-Grip) combines jaws with an electronic actuator to grab drums (18-28”), requiring no manual assistance. The Strap configuration (Roto-Lift) utilizes the included straps to safely secure drums (14-28”). With an 800 lb. capacity it is simple to maneuver units on (4) casters ((2) 6” front rigid, and (2) 4” rear swivel). Power source is a 12V DC battery (included) that plugs into any standard outlet using an extension cord (not included). 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. Note that counter-weighted units are heavier and require more force to maneuver. 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. 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.
