This Vestil DRUM-P-55 drum positioner fork attachment has an 800-lb. capacity and can be used with a fork truck for rotating 55-gal. steel drums between horizontal and vertical positions. The unit has an automatic locking mechanism that locks the positioner in place for horizontal drum positioning, and a release cable that enables control of the latching system without having to leave the forklift truck. It measures 32-1/2 x 75 x 32-7/16 inches (W x L x H) overall and has fork pockets with a 20-1/2" center-to-center span that measure 7 x 2 inches (W x H) on the inside. (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; L is length, the horizontal distance from front to back; H is height, the vertical distance from bottom to top.) This drum positioner fork attachment is suitable for positioning 55-gal. steel drums in a variety of industrial and commercial settings.
Material lifts typically comprise a vertical metal frame and two forks that can support a pallet of goods and that can be raised or lowered to an optimal, ergonomic height for loading or unloading. The forks may be controlled with a hand crank or a foot pump, and they can sometimes be inverted to adjust the service range. Wheels allow the material lift to be rolled for moving materials. Some material lifts have special wheels on the frame that can enable it to be loaded into a delivery truck for transport. Material lifts can be used in warehouses, storerooms, shipping facilities, and other industrial environments.
