All MORSpeed 1500 Forklift Attachments allow you
to grab, lift, move and place drums in minimum time without
leaving the driver's seat of your fork truck. Raise and lower
the forks to grab and release drums. The massive steel jaws
are contoured to securely grasp the drum. They are completely
mechanical and automatic.
MORSpeed 1500 drum handlers work with straight
walled drums or even deformed ribs, since they do not
depend on the drum ribs or friction. They do not require
any modification to your truck. The forklift operator just
raises and lowers the forks and drives forward and back
as necessary. Handle virtually any rimmed drum in a wide
range of sizes and weights:
• Steel drum with closed head or removable top with clamp ring. Plastic drum with non-removable top. Fiber
   drum with metal clamp ring closure secured.
• Even works with straight walled or damaged drums.
• Requires 24” (61 cm) minimum drum height, but will work with any diameter drum.
• Minimum weight per drum required to actuate jaws:
• 75 Lb. (34 kg) on a model with one head per drum
• 350 Lb. (156 kg) with two heads per drum
• Works with or without pallets.
• Contact Morse for advice on suitability of unusual drums or rim shapes.
