This powered transport device enables safe drum transport

The Liftomatic Ergo-PWPL-750 power transporter (photo) simplifies drum handling for operators. This self-contained, powered, drum-handling transport machine engages, lifts, lowers and moves steel, plastic and fiber drums. Its power drive moves in a forward and reverse direction, and provides power lift and lowering capabilities. Depending on the model, it provides varying weight capacities between 650 and 1,000 pounds. The Liftomatic Ergo-Matic line is equipped with a fully programmable set of controls for easy operator adjustment. The company’s exclusive Parrot-Beak clamping mechanism allows the operator to safely and securely grip the drum lip throughout the pickup and release process. Additional features include regenerative braking, available in straddle leg or fully counterbalanced versions, as well as spark-resistant ratings. — Liftomatic Material Handling, Buffalo Grove, Ill.
