level. When the drum holder meets the center of the drum, dismount and screw down
safety locks to grip forks, then secure the drum by cinching the binder (shown

pull the chain loop for complete control of drum tilting. Model 285A-BP, provides a
two-button pendant for battery powered drum tilt control. Tilt drum for dumping then
rotate drum back to upright position. Drum can be fully inverted or controlled for
desired rate of pouring. Fork Lift-Karrier detaches quickly, freeing the truck for other
