Crane Slung or Fork Mounted Drum Rotator.

Our popular Crane Slung Drum Rotator is designed to offer controlled pouring and transport of drums. In order to pick up a drum, set the girdle to its horizontal position by using the handle or chain fitted to the geared turning box./gearbox. The lifting yoke must then be positioned at a height such that the girdle fits between the drums centre most rolling hoops. Once securely fastened the drum can be lifted to pouring height and rotation can commence again by means of the handle or chain fitted to the gearbox. The gearbox will lock the drum at any angle during tipping.


Designed primarily for sitting under an overhead crane for decanting the contents of 210 litre steel drums.

  • Rotation is by means of a crank handle or continuous loop chain, through a heavy duty gearbox.
  • The drum locks positively into the attachment using a single over-centre clamp and steel girdle.
  • Fitted with fork pockets for alternative use with a fork lift truck.
  • Rotation is carried out by means of a crank handle (for below shoulder operation), a hand chain (for operation above shoulder height) or by hydraulic operation (using a hydraulic motor to replace the handle chain that is connected to the aux valve on the truck.)
  • Supplied without hoses.
