Forklift Mounted Drum Grippers are used by workers with leg amputations or other mobility impairments to move steel barrels without leaving the forklift seat. The forklift operator drives to the barrel, lowers the arms around the barrel, then lifts, moves and sets it down by simply operating the controls in the forklift operator station. Without this forklift mounted drum gripper, the operator would need to climb off the forklift, chain or strap the barrel in place, then climb back into the forklift to move the barrel. The forklift mounted drum gripper relieves the need to climb and use two-hand manipulation to secure the barrel.
