BUFFALO GROVE, Ill.—Liftomatic Material Handling Inc. recently released the TD-850, a fully portable drum dumper capable of handling drums weighing as much as 850 pounds.
Liftomatic claims the TD-850's design allows the operator to pick up drums, mix contents and pour or dump them easily. A hinged fiber-padded saddle with a 360-degree rotation radius keeps the drum locked into place. The TD850 also features anti-backlash worm gear that provides additional safety.
Available in fully counter-balanced and straddle-leg configurations, the drum dumper can handle 55-gallon steel, fiber or plastic drums, and its design allow for easy transport forward and backward, according to Liftomatic.
A battery-operated lifting model, the TD-850PL, also is available and is ideal high-volume lifting.
Headquartered Buffalo Grove, Liftomatic designs and manufactures drum handling equipment, and operates manufacturing, engineering and sales facilities around the globe. For more details about this and other products visit liftomatic.com or email [email protected].
