The new design of a mobile hydraulic floor crane with barrel lifter-dumper can now lift and dump 55-gallon metal drums as well as plastic tapered drums.
This unique design of a gripper with a special safety hook will safely retain a tapered plastic drum in the inverted position. The dumping is activated by 180° rotation of the barrel to the inverted position. The rotation can be operated five different ways depending on the application and the user’s circumstances:
- Manual free rotation 360°
- Hand-crank controlled rotation
- Continuous full chain rotation
- Electrically operated push button control (shown in picture)
- Air operated rotation, for hazardous operations.
The Husky-Master Crane equipped with telescopic boom, 12″ polyurethane wheels and powered lift cylinder will lift a drum up to 144″ height and dump the contents into a hopper or blender. The mobility is provided by roller bearing mounted wheels with a T-handle tow bar so that the lifting and dumping can be done any place the user needs it and it is completely self-sufficient.
This unit will improve efficiency and safety in any operation where bulk solids, liquids, or parts need to be lifted and dumped.
