The forklift operator simply slips the fork tines into the sleeves of the attachment, secures it to the carriage by chain and keeper, then uses the pendant control to operate the gripping mechanism. The drum is rotated forwards until fully inverted at 180°, thereby ensuring that the drum is completely emptied. By adjusting the rate of tilt from the operator’s seat, a controlled amount can be decanted during rotation.
The drum can be captured from the floor, pallet or drum bunding pallet, or stacked on pallets on racking – even going in two drums deep if required. The only limitation is the access height of the forklift and the driver's view.
The fork tines must be 63.5 mm between forks to enter the sleeves. Unit dimensions are 1370 mm long x 1140 mm wide x 510 mm high.
The battery fitted in deep-cycle industrial strength. The unit is fully tested before shipping. If the cable attached to the pendant control is an inhibiting factor, you may consider the remote-control option. Call us at +61 3 9720 0425 for more information.
