Hydraulic lateral drum tilter that can be installed on the Fem2 plate of the forklift trolley, for rotating all types of drums.
The BS102 tilter has been designed to rotate drums of different diameters and types (iron, plastic, cardboard). The sturdy frame made of shaped sheets for easier cleaning winds the drum through 400 mm high gripping jaws, completely covered with interchangeable high adhesion rubber, which are hydraulically driven by a pair of cylinders; the hydraulic rotation is continuous on right/left side at 360°.
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 forklift plate by means of the clamping bracket.
