Liftomatic lifts them drums
Originally published:  17/11/2008
US-based Liftomatic has expanded its range of innovative drum handling equipment with the launch of the L4F-QC drum-lifting forklift attachment. The new system features an automatic cam device that locks the attachment to the forklift thus sidestepping the need for safety chains or for the driver to dismount the truck to secure it in place. Fully mechanical, the L4F-QC requires no electric or hydraulic connections and in one sitting can handle up to four steel, fibre or plastics rimmed drums weighing up to 2,000 lb (900 kg) apiece or 8,000 lb (3,600 kg) in total. While a gravity and spring activated cam system automatically locks the attachment to the forks of the truck as soon as the L4F-QC is raised, the cams automatically release when the attachment is set back on the ground.
