A TAWI drum lifter allows you to lift, turn, rotate and empty contents of a drum from the top or the side in complete control. It can be designed with various standard and customized tools for handling drums in different sizes and shapes. Different industries and environments have special requirements that need to be met, and using either a TAWI vacuum drum lifter or electric drum lifter is the solution.

A TAWI vacuum drum lifter easily lifts, transports, rotates and empties drums. It is a strong, compact, versatile piece of equipment designed to make quick work of handling loads weighing up to 600 lbs. Applications such as bottles, tins, buckets and cans can be lifted from the top, while other applications, such as beer kegs, can be lifted from the sides and turned upside down. Suction feet can also be designed to lift more than one drum at a time.

A stainless steel vacuum drum lifter is also available for cleanroom environments. Lifting in high demand areas often includes a stainless steel configuration with the vacuum pump at another location.
