Motion Industries Company Profile

Drum handler has 1,100-pound capacity

Drum handler has 1,100-pound capacity

Featuring the patented Gator Grip, the DM-1100 Ergonomic Drum Handler was developed primarily to lift and transport an array of drums within the industrial workplace.

A foot-operated hydraulic pump, the DM-1100 lifts and transports fiber, poly and steel drums that weigh more than 1,100 pounds. The Gator Grip spring-loaded jaws, meanwhile, can hold any 3/16-inch or higher drum rim, while also handling a majority of 30-, 55- or 85-gallon drums. Weighing 365.5 pounds, the DM-1100 is 48 inches high and has a lift height of 20 inches, along with a rise/stroke of one inch.

If its legs are extended, the DM-1100 has a 1,100-pound capacity (37-inch length; 41-inch width); however, if its legs are retracted, it has a 650-pound capacity (34.5-inch length; 36-inch width).
