Hydra-Lift Drum Karriers
A fully loaded drum is easily handled by one person with the Morse Hydra-Lift Karrier. Lift , move and control pouring of a 55 gallon (210 liter) steel drum weighing up to 800 Lb. and then return it to the storage area with minimal physical effort. Other drum sizes may be handled when using available accessories. Several standard models offer a range of maximum pouring heights. "Specials" can be made for extra lift, more reach, greater straddle width, non-standard containers, etc.
The operator can raise and tilt to pour as much as necessary. Pouring angle can be increased for full discharge, reduced to control the pour rate or reversed to stop pouring to deliver partial drum contents.
Material is discharged straight forward directly from the drum. Faucets, pipe,
valve extensions, etc. may be attached to the drum, but the ability to pour straight from the drum with variable lift and pour angles is an important difference from chute type dumpers.
Though often used for lifting and pouring, the Hydra-Lift Karrier can be used in various ways, such as lifting drums on or off scales, platforms, conveyors or trucks, moving drums to or from storage, charging high tanks and positioning drums of parts for hand access at work stations.
