Liftomatic drum handler for C1D1 applications

Liftomatic Material Handling Inc. introduced a customized portable drum handler for C1 D1 applications, the C1D1-DCM.

C1D1-DCMThe C1D1-DCM power drum transporter is a completely powered and self-contained handling device for lifting, lowering and moving all types of steel, plastic and fiber drums.

The unit incorporates a completely electrically enclosed and spark-free power drive, as well as power lift and lower for moving drums quickly and efficiently by any operator in all plants, warehouses and laboratories. Weight capacities up to 1000 pounds are available.

The models offer users a number of benefits, including protection for “EE” and “EX” rated environments. Features include a steering/throttle handle for forward/reverse drive, lift and lower features and tight turning radius for tight aisle and restricted workspace facilities. The transporter offers a standard lift height of 20” to allow for palletizing on standard or spill pallets and handles up to 1000# per drum. The power system can negotiate inclines and offers the ability to load/unload trucks and shipping containers. Additional features include a fully counterbalanced configuration for “head-on” work with pallets, cabinets, etc., and heavy-duty deep-cycle industrial grade battery. The C1D1-DCM uses Liftomatic’s proven “Parrot-Beak” clamping system for safe handling of steel, plastic and fiber drums. An optional charger is available.
