Universal Drum Rotators

Universal drum rotator with winch chain

Suitable for use with a mixed variety of drums (steel, plastic & fibre), our Universal Drum Rotator can be used with both a forklift or overhead crane.

Rotation of drums is carried out via a high-quality gearbox connected to a easy to operate crank handle.

With drums being positioned, so they sit on the rotator’s platform, this ensures flexible sided drums do not slip when being rotated
