It's a good design.
Your review: The Salvage Drum Lifter is a key component of the lift assist system the we use to handle the 55 gal. drums daily. Each drum weighs in excess of 350lbs. and the Drum lifter can handle well in excess of that. This is the second that we ordered from Global, the first has been in use for years and with the increase in volume it only made sense to order another, it's solid, easy, quick and safe.
