Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc., recently introduced a customized portable drum handler for C1 D1 applications, called simply, the C1D1-DCM.
The C1D1-DCM power drum transporter is a powered and self-contained handling device for lifting, lowering and moving all types of steel, plastic and fiber drums.
The unit incorporates a completely electrically enclosed and spark-free power drive, as well as power lift and lower for moving drums quickly and efficiently by any operator in all plants, warehouses and laboratories. Weight capacities up to 1,000 lb are available.
The models offer users a number of benefits, including protection for “EE” and “EX” rated environments. Features include a steering/throttle handle for forward/reverse drive, lift and lower features, and tight turning radius for tight aisle and restricted workspace facilities. The power system can negotiate inclines and offers the ability to load/unload trucks and shipping containers. Additional features include a fully counterbalanced configuration for “head-on” work with pallets, cabinets, etc., and heavy-duty deep-cycle industrial grade battery. The C1D1-DCM uses Liftomatic’s Parrot-Beak clamping system for safe handling of steel, plastic and fiber drums. An optional charger is available.
