About the DLFT/P Drum Rotator Forklift Attachment


There are 2 models in this range of forklift drum rotators with just one key difference. The first is the DLFT which can be used for handling 210 litre steel drums. The second model is the DLFTP which is designed for the 210 litre plastic, poly drums. Both have a maximum lifting capacity of 365kg, and measure 680 x 535 x 995mm. The DLTF weighs 70kg and the DLFTP weighs 76kg.



These drum rotating forklift attachments incorporate two sleeves which slide onto the tines/forks and lock on by tightening the screw clamps to the rear.

The maximum fork entry size is 180 x 65mm. The distance between the centre points of the fork sleeves is 620mm, so please ensure this will fit your forklift truck.

To pick up a drum, simply steer the forklift up to the drum until the drum girdle sits around its centre. Then secure the girdle around the drum using the chain and ratchet mechanism. Now the drum can be lifted to the required height . Rotating the drum is really easy, simply pull on the chain attached to the chain gear device and the drum will rotate. A full 360 degree rotation can be achieved.

Once the drum is attached, thanks to the long 10 ft. chain the drum can be rotated from the cab of the truck so the driver need not leave their seat which is an added bonus.


Made from steel with a powder coated finish these drum rotator forklift attachments enables the drum to be tilted to any position and therefore dispensing the contents is quick and easy.
