Hydraulic forklift tilter from vertical to horizontal and vice versa for storage saddles.
The BS98 tilter has been designed to position drums horizontally on the storage saddles, but allowing the front rotation of 150° it can also be used as drum tilter. The drum is wound by 400 mm high gripping jaws completely covered with interchangeable rubber. The clamping jaws are hydraulically driven by a pair of cylinders, the hydraulic rotation is frontal by 150°.
Hydraulic actuation of the clamping/release and rotation offers important advantages: first of all it allows the drums to be moved and rotated without the operator having to leave the forklift; secondly, thanks to the maximum pressure valve, the drums can always be tightened with the correct clamping pressure (neither too weak nor too high) and last but not least. From a safety point of view, the block valves located on the cylinders keep the drums tight even in the event of hydraulic pipes being cut.
The tilter is simply and safely secured to the forks by means of the clamping bracket.
