Morse 288-1 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 fit over the fork truck's forks, and are secured to the fork truck using a chain. 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 288-1 features one set of jaws and can lift drums which weigh at least 75 LBS, while model 288-1-2H has two sets of jaws which grip a single drum, reducing the stress on the drum rim. Model 288-1-2H requires the drum to weigh over 350 LBS. These forklift drum handlers have 6½"W x 2½"H fork pockets. Distance between forks is 16½". Morse 288-1 Forklift Drum Lifters are made from steel for durability.
