The HCB hoist attachment (photo) is designed to handle all 55-gal drums, enabling safe lifting of steel, fiber and plastic drums weighing up to 2,000 lb. A padded belt cradle protects the drum sidewall during transport. The HCB is available in one- or two-drum configurations, including stainless-steel units for food-grade and pharmaceutical applications. Using this company’s exclusive Parrot-Beak drum-handling attachment, the model HBC-BC attaches to any overhead hoist, crane or boom and engages drums automatically. An exclusive mechanical clamping system engages the top lip of the container, ensuring a safe and reliable container pickup, says the manufacturer. — Liftomatic Material Handling, Inc., Buffalo Grove, Ill.
