Drum Roll Lifters, Mobile Automatic Lifters

  1. 1. Choosing the Right Drum Lifter A drum lifter can transport large, heavy drums in upright positions. Sometimes called drum roll lifters or mobile automatic drum roll lifters, they can lift, tip, mix, empty and transport drums. Drum lifters are excellent additions to any workplace that uses large drums. They are good tools for lifting, moving and storing heavy drums. The drum lifter’s ergonomic design can eliminate muscle, joint and back injuries while increasing a worker’s overall output. Drum roll lifters are used in a wide variety of industries, including: • Electronic • Pharmaceutical • Food • Engineering • Automotive Mobile automatic drum roll lifters usually have a load attachment which can be easily changed to fit and accommodate multiple purposes and needs. They can maximize productivity by saving on the cost of moving stationary equipment and also help to avoid disruptions to the overall manufacturing process. Drum roll lifters not only maximize productivity, they also enhance the safety of your workers, which is absolutely necessary. There are numerous benefits to employers who provide their employees with the safest workplace possible. Employee safety reduces costs related to injuries, increases productivity and boosts employee morale. The average cost of a lost-time injury claim in Ontario through WSIB in 2007 was $98 000. You can’t afford to have your employees working with hazardous, unsafe equipment. Drum lifters are proven to be safe and cost effective. Drum roll lifters ensure operator and equipment safety in a number of ways, by being: • Explosion proof • Adaptable to multi-shift operations • Easy to operate in small and narrow spaces In addition, most drum roll lifters have an adjustable overload protection and ergonomic design to facilitate easy lifting, moving, handling and manipulation of loads of all sizes. Drum lifters are usually constructed of solid steel. To use them, you simply lower the unit onto the drum and as the lifter is elevated the positive gripping pads secure the drum. When the drum is lowered to the ground the carriage drops down, automatically locking the drum lifter in an open position so that it is ready for another drum, and so the process can repeat. They can stack one drum vertically above another, tilt, hold and empty drums onto vessels. Drum lifters are heavy duty and high load bearing.
