INNOVATIONS PRODUCTS FINISHING — 49 Below-Hook Handling System Can Position 55-Gallon Drums Liƞomatic Material Handling's model 3A-HD-BHDL is a fully automatic and mechanical below-hook handling system that can be used to liƞ 55-gallon drums from an overhead position for placement to or from containment devices, scales, pallets or other locations. The drums remain in a vertical position while liƞed and/or transported. Three radial arms conform to the drum body and engage at the underside of the drum chime. The unit has a working capac- ity ranging to 3,000 lbs per drum, and it can handle drums with an outside chime diameter of 21"-23". An "intuitive-lock" engagement system ensures the radial arms remain in the locked position until the load is placed. The handling system can be attached to virtually any overhead liƞing hoist or to the company's model FTB-3 forkliƞ adapter, allowing it to be used from the underside of a set of forkliƞ forks.
