About the DTR 1&2 Drum Rotator

Lifting, rotating and emptying drums has never been so easy as with the DTR drum rotator. With this model range you can handle 210 litre steel drums as well as large and extra large ring plastic drums both with maximum lifting capacities of 360 kg.

The attachment slides onto the tines of a forklift truck and secures with robust ‘T’ screw retention bolts. TIP! You must refer to the precise specifications below to ensure the attachment will fit onto the forks of your truck; they are not all the same measurements! However the DTR has generously sized fork pockets to enable the truck to be driven straight in, this makes the fitting of the attachment much easier and very quick.

The drum fits snugly into a braced girdle which is manually adjustable; the drum is secured with webbing ratchet straps to ensure the drum is held firmly without risk of slipping.

The DTR drum rotator has a robust, quality gearbox to enable easy rotation and emptying of the drum. The DTR-1 operates with a crank handle and the DTR-2 operates with a loop chain, both facilitate easy and controlled operation without much effort. A hydraulically operated model is also available – the DTR-1-H. The drums can be fully rotated through 360 degrees and locked at any angle.  The DTR-2 with its loop chain enables the drum to be rotated overhead thanks to the length of the chain to operate the tipping motion, this can be operated from the driving seat.
