Captures many different sizes of drums, down to 110 Ltr. Plastic drums or straight sided drums can be additionally secured using the two ratchet and straps, above and below the central grab.
Captures a drum from floor level, from a pallet or drum bund corner – up to 450mm centre height. Max load capacity 350 Kgs.
Raises the drum using a battery-operated drill, a standard drill, an air operated drill, or alternatively can be fitted with permanent electric or air motor.
The double reduction paired drive gearboxes make lifting and lowering fully controllable and non-slip. The drum is driven both up and down – no gravity involved.
Enables one person to remove a drum from floor level or pallet, and decant the drums contents single handedly and without requiring a forklift.
Requires no external electricity when using a battery hand drill. When used with an air drill, Redback can be used where sparks may be hazardous.
Can be used in remote locations without electricity, such as airfields, plantations, farms, etc.
The Redback Drum Lifter / Rotator, has been designed and patented by King Group, for sale by the Pack King network, and is licenced for manufacture and sales around the world.
The need for a device to raise 200 Ltr (55 gallon) drums from floor level or from bunding pallets, then to continue lifting the drum until it could be presented to the operator horizontally, and at a height where the contents could be decanted into another 200 Ltr drum, or the contents decanted into smaller vessels or containers, was the driver for this product.
It allows one person to perform all functions.
In researching the lift methodology, it was apparent that lift speed and load security (preventing the4 load from falling, if stopped half way), required two very special gearboxes, mated to give enough lift / lower speed with sufficient over rated gear meshing power with a significant % age safety margin, to satisfy test protocols for drum handling equipment.
