The knuckle gripping system is lowered around the drum, gripped tightly, and then lifted. The weight of the drum holds grab jaws in place to minimize slippage.

Easy all the way around

Easy to store, put on forks and use. Worth every penny- no more scraped up drums from trying to use just the forks to move them. Safer for the employees as well.

Needed some modifying to work properly

When I got this item I had to shorten the stops slightly to make it fit my barrels which are just under 22 1/2" diameter. I also had to the brackets on the top side of the pivot points so that the barrel rings would not rest on this bracket while in the drum grab. After this modifications it works pretty good but does take some getting used to. It also works best on older heavier built drum. Some of my newer drums that only weigh 30 lbs empty will dent pretty easily with this unit. My older ones that weigh 60 lbs empty do not have this problem.

Pretty Nifty

Your review: Our Engineers are very happy with this tool. It helps us where there is no clearance for the hanging type and that was all we were finding until we came to Global... We just love these guys

Grabber

Your review: The grabber is well made and the forks fold back onto the frame, which is a good space saver when not in use. The only drawback so far is that the grabber does does mark/dent the drums a bit. I think that this is due to is being new and somewhat "stiff". I am hoping that with use, it will break in nicely.

Drum gripper

Your review: The drum gripper has made our life's much easier, where it was a two man job unloading 500lbs drums now it's a simple one man job.

Durable & simple design with great functionality!!

Your review: We move drums around about 3 times a month and did not need an overly complicated drim lift. This lift is basic and simple and stores in a small location. I am happy with the purchase.

Satisfied

Your review: This product seems to work well. Have only used it a couple of times since purchasing it. Very well built and functions as it should. It has the attachment point for a safety chain that I did not see on several other grippers that I looked at before purchasing this one.
