Morse Hydra-Lift Drum Rotators lift and roll your closed drum to mix and blend the contents.
The built-in hydraulic system lifts your drum from floor level and places it quickly and easily
for rotation on the drum turner. Popular models include 456-1-115, 456-E1-115 Explosion Proof, and 456-A Air Motor.

Drum Rotators Save Time, Labor and Money!
Morse developed the basic concept to provide "hands-off" drum handling and mixing. Enjoy the benefits of easy, ergonomic loading and unloading and eliminate many hazards of manual drum handling.
Benefits of mixing inside closed shipping drums
* Roll drum to remix settled ingredients
* Eliminate transfer, clean-up, and special vessels
* Use separate drum for each batch
* No container to purge between batches
* Nothing to insert into drum to mix
Hydra-Lift Drum Rollers accept a steel drum in upright position. You control the hydraulic tilt to lift an upright drum and place it down on drum rotator wheels. Start and stop drum rotation with a second control. Roll a drum at 5 to 20 RPM until contents are mixed as desired. Then return the drum to vertical to unload.
Drum Rotator Capacity:
* 1,000 Lb. (455 kg) Liquid load
* 400 Lb. (182 kg) Dry load. A shifting dry load exerts greater stress on the drum rotator than the fluid motion of a liquid load.
* Roll steel drum: 6" to 26" (15 to 66 cm) diameter, maximum 40" (102 cm) length
Overall dimensions: 67" (170 cm) long x 37" (94 cm) wide. See: Dimensional Information.
Available with choice of electric motors. Explosion proof motors available (see chart below).
Available with air motor as model 456-A.
Easy to Load by Hand Truck or Hoist
Enclosures for Morse Hydra-Lift Drum Rollers
Enclosure outside post-to-post dimensions: 88"L X 40"W X 74"H (224 x 102 x 188 cm)
Note: OSHA Requirement for enclosure with safety interlock Install all Morse Rotators in accordance with OSHA requirements for enclosure and safety interlock, etc. so the rotator automatically turns off when enclosure door is opened. One way to accomplish this is with a Morse enclosure with safety interlock.
For OSHA compliance, see OSHA subpart O.1910.212(a)(4) "Barrels, containers, and drums. Revolving drums, barrels, and containers shall be guarded by an enclosure which is interlocked with the drive mechanism, so that the barrel, drum, or container cannot revolve unless the guard enclosure is in place."
Power connections and motor controls must comply with applicable codes.
A drum truck provides a simple means to deliver and remove your drum from the drum turner. Model 160 is shown here.
Load your upright drum onto drum turner with a below-hook drum lifter. Model 90 Verti-Karrier shown above.
