Additional Info

Valley Craft Versa-Lift Straddle Drum Lifters, models F88553C1 & F88561C1, are versatile drum lifters which handle drums weighing up to 800 LBS. Lift is powered by a 12V deep cycle battery (included). These manual drive drum handlers have a single mast, which ensures high visibility while transporting loads. Valley Craft Versa-Lift Drum Handlers are made of steel with a green powder coat finish for durability. Valley Craft Versa-Lift Drum Handlers do not come standard with a drum handling attachment - this must be purchased in addition to the Versa-Lift unit. Models are also available with pneumatic powered lift - please contact HOF for details.
