Bespoke Drum Rotators

Our bespoke drum rotators provide solutions to drum tipping applications that require special features and custom dimensions.

Our bespoke drum rotators

For the majority of drum handling applications one of our standard drum rotators will be suitable. If you require special features or have any dimensional constraints, we can design and build a custom one-off drum rotator. As a company we specialise in drum rotators: over the last decade we’ve built hundreds of drum tippers, many with their own unique features.

Our drum rotators

Drum rotators generally divide into three categories: forward tipping, side tipping and overhead. Each has its benefits and features that work well in certain areas and applications. Below is a selection of bespoke drum rotators we’ve made for our customers.

By offering a full design and build service we can provide you with bespoke drum rotators that meet all operational requirements. To discuss your drum tipping needs please get in touch.
