Liftomatic Unveils Below-Hook Drum Handler


July 23, 2013 - Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc., Buffalo Grove, Ill., has expanded its line of innovative drum- handling equipment by unveiling the model 3A-HD-BHDL, a below-hook drum-handling system.

Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc., Buffalo Grove, Ill., has expanded its line of innovative drum- handling equipment by unveiling the model 3A-HD-BHDL, a below-hook drum-handling system.

The  3A-HD-BHDL is a fully automatic and mechanical below-hook attachment that can lift 55-gal. drums from overhead and keep them vertical while they are transported.

The 3A-HD-BHDL’s three radial arms conform to the drum body and engage the underside of the drum chime on nearly any 55-gal. steel or plastic drum weighing up to 3,000 lbs. and having an outside chime diameter from 21” to 23”.

The three-point connection helps maintain the drum’s integrity during lifting. A cutting-edge “intuitive-lock” engagement system ensures the radial arms remain locked until the load is set into its final location.

The 3A-HD-BHDL can be attached to any overhead lifting hoist or to Liftomatic’s model FTB-3 forklift adapter for use from the underside of forklift forks.

It is ideal for energy industries, environmental operations, and general use. The unit was designed as a result of customer requests for a positive locking system assurance that eliminates the need to manually lock and unlock the armature to a drum.
