The HCB hoist attachment can handle all 55-gallon drums. It safely lifts steel, fiber and plastic drums weighing up to 2,000 pounds using Liftomatic’s exclusive Parrot-Beak drum-handling attachment. Model HCB-BC attaches to any overhead hoist, crane or boom and engages drums automatically. Liftomatic’s mechanical clamping system engages the top lip of the container, assuring a safe and reliable pickup each time. An adjustable counter-balance on the main frame of the unit allows for safe handling of all drums from 15 to 27 inches in diameter, and a padded belt cradle protects the drum sidewall during transport.
