Forklift Attachment to Lift, Move and Pour a Drum
Use the new Morse model # 290F GRIP+GOTM power-grip fork mount drum handler to lift, move and pour a drum right from your forklift. You can FULLY invert a drum. . . turning the drum forward 180o. Control the drum tilt function all the way from upright to fully inverted.
Grab a drum off the floor, from a pallet, racking, trucks, etc.
The drum turns down BETWEEN the forks, close to the forklift. The compact design (dimensioned drawing on spec sheet) provides a tight turning radius. And the GRIP+GOTM weighs just 680 Lb. (308 kg) for minimal lost load on your equipment.
Self-contained 12V battery powers the grip and tilt function, requiring no connection to your lift's power or hydraulics. The battery and charger are included.
The control pendant has built-in safety features to help prevent unintentional release of a drum.
Factory installed Option # 6149i-P Wireless control is available.
The GRIP+GOTM requires 25" (63.5 cm) between the forks, as the fork pockets are 25" apart for clearance around a typical 24" (61 cm) diameter 55-gallon (210 liter) drum.
Model 290F grips a drum with 8" x 16" (20 x 41 cm) jaws. The grip pressure is adjustable for handling a steel, plastic or fiber drum.

Option # 6172-P - Grip Pads
Grip Pads Required for plastic or fiber drum provide 75% more grip surface. The extra wide grip surface when using the 6172-P kit not only adds grip area but allows a higher grip pressure. Grip surface material is high friction SBR Rubber Polymer (also known as RMA Grade II rubber).
Plastic drums always deform when gripping. They will return to shape. The biggest concern with squeezing a poly drum too much is that the pressure inside the drum could pop the cap, or even the drum itself.
Model 290F is NOT recommended for plastic drum with cap or lid removed
If one of the caps or the lid is off the drum, and the drum has weight, the 290F is NOT recommended. In these circumstances the drum walls will collapse before it has enough grip.
