Mobile Ergonomic Drum Handler

To date Servolift has manufactured over 1300 Ergonomic Mobile Drum Lifter machines, making it the most widely used mobile ergonomic drum handler in the world. The design may seem unusual, however, it operates with great finesse, affording even the smallest operators stress free handling of drums up to 660 lbs.  Almost every machine we have built since 1976 is still in operation.

In Addition to easy handling the unit allow has some key features: the arms collapse to a height of only 67" while lifting a drum all the way to 132", the system can place a drum into a drum/funnel holder (nest), such as over a tablet press allowing this one lifter to service multiple discharge points.
