Morse 287 Forklift Drum Lifters are designed to grab and lift rimmed 30-gallon, 55-gallon or 85-gallon drums measuring at least 24" high. These forklift drum handlers mount directly onto ITA class 2 forklift carriages. Up to two drum lifters can be installed at the same time, enabling drums to be lifted without forks. They are operated entirely from the driver's seat, making it faster and easier to transport drums around the workplace. Steel jaws automatically grab the top rim of the drum when the forks are raised, and release the drum when it is lowered to the ground. Model 287 features one set of jaws and can lift drums which weigh at least 75 LBS, while model 287-2H has two sets of jaws which grip a single drum, reducing the stress on the drum rim. Model 287-2H requires the drum to weigh over 350 LBS. These carriage mounted forklift drum handlers can lift and lower drums in limited space, and can not reach past a single row of drums on a pallet. Morse 287 Forklift Drum Lifters are made from steel for durability.

Morse 287 Forklift Drum Lifter has an estimated lead time to leave the warehouse of 2 weeks, while model 287-2H has an estimated lead time of 6 to 7 weeks.
