Powered Drum Dumper : By adding a rotator to your Drum Hauler, an operator can easily rotate a drum either left and right or 180 degrees forward. Where this product is unique is that there are no straddle legs on the very compact truck. This allows users to take drums on and off pallets and reach over tanks and hoppers when dumping. These units can be completely powered in that they have power lift, drive, clamp and rotation. All of this from a unit that is capable of lifting a drum 8+ feet yet still fit through a single standard door.
