apart. Each opening is 2.5" (6.35 cm) high by 6.5" (16.5 cm) wide.

dismount and screw down safety locks to grip forks, then secure the
drum by cinching the binder (shown below). Raise the carriage and
travel to dumping location. Without leaving the seat, 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
