Liftomatic introduces attachment that handles 55-gallon drums
Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc., a material handling equipment manufacturer, recently introduced the HCB hoist attachment to handle all 55-gallon drums.
The HCB hoist attachment safely lifts steel, fiber and plastic drums weighing up to 2000 lbs. using Liftomatic’s exclusive “Parrot-Beak®” drum handling attachment. The model HCB-BC attaches to any overhead hoist, crane or boom and engages drums automatically. Liftomatic’s exclusive mechanical clamping system engages the top lip of the container, assuring a safe and reliable pick-up each time.
An adjustable counter-balance on the main frame of the unit allows for safe handling of all drums from 15 to 27 inches in diameter. A padded belt cradle protects the drum sidewall during transport. The model HCB is available in 1 or 2 drum configurations, including stainless steel units for food grade and pharmaceutical applications.
