MODEL: LIFT-O-FLEX™ Squeeze-O-Turn™

The LIFT-O-FLEX™ Squeeze-O-Turn™ is a lifting device to support drum handling or items that require external handling/clamping for rotation or movements.

The electric Squeeze-O-Turn™ is a lifting device to support drum handling and handling of any item that requires rotation. The electrical clamp and rotate module squeezes from the outside to lift and rotate with a complete 360° manipulation, making it ideal for barrels, bins, boxes, etc.

The Squeeze-O-Turn™ is easy to configure and adapts to different loads.  Squeeze-O-Turn™'s unique modular drum handling has a maximum lifting capacity of 300 lbs.*
The squeeze arms can be mechanically adjusted to fit larger or smaller loads.
Built-in safety features prevent accidental release of loads, and the squeeze pressure preset protects products from damage.

*Actual lift capacities depend upon individual applications.
