The drum grab can be mounted to the forks, with a designed objective of dealing with steel drums which have rolling hoops.

Drum capacity maximum is 210 liters for steel drums with rolling hoops and 220 liters for plastic drums.
The drum rotator is actually a lift truck accessory that mounts on to the blades themselves. The purpose of the drum rotator is to be able to pick up the drum and turn it upside down. The drum fits in to the rotator using a steel clamp which fits over the center of the drum. The rotation is done by either a crank handle or a continuous loop chain.
