Suitable for 210 litre steel and plastic drums of the 'L' or 'XL' ring variety, this forklift drum rotator offers the ability to rotate drums sideways through 360 degrees.

Rotation is performed by either an easy-to-use crank handle (for shoulder height rotation) or a loop chain (for above shoulder height rotation) both of which are connected to a high-quality gearbox.  Full rotation of a drum can be carried out in minutes with minimal effort required.  Simple and secure fastening of the drum into the attachment ensures the drum does not slip during the rotating process.

An ideal forklift drum rotating attachment for use in narrow aisles or confined spaces where sideways rotation is only possible

Supplied with 3 year warranty, fully tested & certificated
