Our side-shift function is unique: sixteen precision bearings allow you to smoothly slide the model left and right, so accessing the whole pallet is simple and straightforward. Once secured, you can move the lifter over the pallet to pick up the drum. When lowering a drum to the floor, the side-shift function gives you precise control, reducing placement gaps between drums.
