Original Press Release:
Change-Out Drums to Different Pallet Sizes
Because pallets come in so many different sizes, drums are often received and shipped out on pallets that do not suit a warehouse's optimum pallet storage size. This mix requires drum change-outs from one pallet size to another.
The LOM-4 forklift attachment from Liftomatic is designed to quickly and safely handle drum change-outs from one to four drums at-a-time.
The Liftomatic LOM-4 even handles a mixed group of 4 drums, steel, plastic or fiber, rim or rimless, up to 8000# total weight, as long as the drum heights are within 1.5 inches of each other.
The trans-loading of drums by hand is neither safe nor productive.
The Liftomatic LOM-4 is also available with spark-resistant and "EE" rated components.
Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc. maintains manufacturing, engineering and logistics facilities in the Americas and in Asia and the company's products are distributed in more than 40 countries worldwide. The company celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2007.
