Forklift Attachments Suited for Drum Handling


Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc, now offers attachments to handle up to four drums at once.

Liftomatic offers two forklift-mounted attachments suited for high-volume drum handling. The attachments do not require hydraulic or electrical connections. Both units are capable of handling 1, 2, 3 or 4 rimmed steel, poly and fiber drums with a total load capacity of 8,000 pounds.

The LOM-4 units come in two configurations to handle up to 4 drums at once. The model L4F can handle 1, 2, 3 or 4 drums and is useful for mixed loads, single stacking in trucks and trailers and for fill-line movement. The model S4F handles 4 drums at a time only, for double stacking in trucks and trailers where overall height is limited.

Both models are available with spark-resistant and "EE" rated components. Each can handle a mixed group of 4 drums, steel, plastic or fiber at one time, as long as the drums heights are within 1.5 inches of each other. Crane and carriage-mount models are also available.

Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc. is an acknowledged leader in the design and manufacture of drum handling equipment. Headquartered in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, Liftomatic maintains manufacturing, engineering and sales facilities around the globe. Liftomatic currently sells products in over 40 countries and sells to more than 400 of the Fortune 500 companies.
