Loop and secure the safety chain around the forklift cage, making sure it’s as tight as possible. The drum grabber is now ready to load and transport drums. To secure a drum, tilt the forks slightly downward and slowly drive up to gently make contact… …keeping contact with the drum, raise the forks until the steel beak grips the rim of the drum. Once secured, lift until the drum is at desired height. To release the drum, lower the forks until the beak releases. Once released, slowly move the forklift away. To adjust the height of the beak for shorter drums push down on drum grabber beak housing and slide
the included 12mm steel rod above the drum beak and under both the height adjustment pin and spring support bar.
