This attachment is only used on European style plastic drums that are tapered on the bottom. The EPG attachment has arms that are contoured to the taper of the drum for support. An upper curved section of the attachment supports the drum while the operator tilts the lift truck mast back after lifting for transport. Tapered arms have spring steel to open when drums are released. Please specify if drums to be handled are 30 gallon or 55 gallon size when ordering.

European style plastic drums have steadily increased in numbers worldwide, especially among exporters of fruit juices and other food products. Having no lifting chime, they are typically manhandled from double stacked overseas containers. This attachment slides on the forks of any lift truck. Its fully automatic mechanical design requires no hydraulic or electrical connections to the lift truck. A safety chain with cam-lock secures the attachment to the lift truck in seconds without the need for tools.
The model EPG2-F can handle 1 or 2 drums at a time through the use of clamping arms which wrap around the tapered sides of the drum. Models are available as single or double drum units handling 55 or 30 gallon size drums.
