Lift Attachment Allows Users to Pick and Move Drums Effortlessly

The DU-SOM drum upending attachment allows operators to pick drums, automatically, from horizontal or vertical positions in a rack or other storage application, remove and turn them around safety for transport or use.  This mechanical attachment fits any forklift, and handles up to 850 lbs in 55-gal fiber, steel or plastic drums.  The operator need never leave the forklift seat to manipulate the drum to vertical, horizontal or transitional positions. The attachment allows users to move drums, effortlessly, with no outside attachments or accessories, its manufacturer says.  Options are available for handling drums with faucets or spigots.
