Heavy-Duty Verti-Karrier below-hook drum lifter with 2000 Lb. (907 kg) capacity for a rimmed 55-gallon (210 liter) steel drum.


Use a Morse Verti-Karrier Drum Lifter hoist attachment to grab and lift a steel drum by gripping under the top rim. Then move and place your drum almost anywhere.

Load a drum to and from remote or hard-to-reach areas. You only need to operate your hoist to guide the drum grab into position. Then operate your crane to lift and move the drum. The drum picker grip will not disconnect until drum is fully down. This saves operator time and protects against dangerous climbing.
