DTP08 - Short Counterbalance Drum Lifter

Short Counterbalance Drum Lifter

This counterbalance drum lifter is based on the design of our standard DTP07 but with shorter length of 1006mm. The drum lifter is designed for lifting drums up to 250kg in confined areas where space around the drum is an issue. It has a counterweight in the box at the back of the unit. This allows the unit to pick up drums and barrels without the need of support legs sticking out the front of the unit. These counterbalance lifter units are generally used to take drums off pallets and load them into dispensing machines that have no access for wheels to go around or under.

The universal stainless steel drum grip can pick up steel or plastic drums and barrels from 50 to 205 litres. We have fitted the highest quality wheels with precision bearings to ensure that the unit is easy to push. The rear handle operates the tiller steering on both rear wheels. We would recommend this counterbalance unit for operating on level floors. The steel chassis is grit blasted and powder coated to give a tough long lasting finish. The drum is lifted using a double acting hydraulic hand pump. This is easy and quick to use.

The drum lifter is also available in full stainless steel including an electro polished finish for GMP areas. Both the steel and stainless steel units can be supplied for ATEX Rated areas.
