Weigh Drums While Transporting Them

The Liftomatic Ergo-1000-OBS allows the operator to automatically pick, lift, weigh and move all contemporary styles of plastic, fiber and steel drums.

Using special load-cell technology, the weighing device has zero-out, auto shut-off, metric and imperial measurement capabilities and can be ordered with an optional printing feature. Accuracy is within one pound or 0.25% up to 1,000 pounds in weight.

This transportable drum handling device is equipped with Liftomatic's exclusive Parrot-Beak® mechanical clamping system that engages the top lip of the container, assuring a safe and reliable pick-up each time.

A rubber belt cradle cushions the side of the drum during pick-up and transport, protecting labels, printing and bar codes against scratching.
