Drums - Horizontal lifting/moving
5-gallon pails to 55 gallon drums up to 1,000 lbs. can be easily lifted and moved horizontally with a vacuum lift system, or with mechanical attachments on a chain or air hoist.

Metal, plastic, or fiber drums can all be handled easily from the top, and or side. If vacuum cups arc used on the drum top surface the lid must be able to bear the weight of the full load. These systems require an overhead crane support.

Rotations -Rotating a drum under a vacuum tube lifter is difficult, as the lift tubes are sensitive to a shifting center of gravity. If a vacuum assist system is used it is recommended that the load be placed into a rotating drum cradle. Mechanical grabs with manual, electric or pneumatic rotation controls can accomplish the lift/rotation task.

There are a number of attachments available for use with forklifts to move single, or multiple drums.

Mobile, wheeled drum carriers can be used where the work surface is smooth and level.
