201VS Series (above)

Other models available include:

201B Series Belted Portable Drum Rotator –

The belted drum rollers have a pair of belts between the rollers to turn the drum. Belted Rotators allow a fiber drum weighing up to 300 Lbs. to be rolled without damaging the fiber sidewall. 201B Series belted drum rollers are available with same drum speed and motor types as 201 Series.

POLY-201 Plastic Drum Roller –

Since plastic drums are soft-sided and lack the ridged ribs and rims of a steel drum, they require special features to position them on the drum roller, and to prevent them from traveling lengthways during rotation.  Three extra wheels on each side are designed to support a 55-gallon plastic drum. The weight of your plastic drum is then distributed over a total of 14 wheels and an end-stop prevents the drum from traveling while being rolled.  As an added feature, a chain to latch around the top of the drum while tipping from upright to horizontal rolling position on the drum rotator is included.
