STU – Simple Tipping Unit:
A Manual Tipping Tool for Drum Lifters or Box Handlers

Alt-text: The simple tipping unit (STU). When mounted on a box handler or drum lifter, a container   may be manually tipped forward e.g. to empty a load.

Ideal for mounting on a drum lifter or box handler, the simple tipping unit (STU) allows a load to be tipped forward by hand. The motion is facilitated by either gipping the load directly or by means of a handle located on the side of the STU.

This lifting tool is typically used for either reorientating a load or for emptying containers, for instance drums of boxes.

Like most of the other lifting tools we supply, the dimensions of the STU can be modified to accommodate customers’ specific requirements


  • Different grippers are available and can be customzised to fit a large range of different loads.
  • Easily customizable; dimensions  can be modified to customer specifications.
  • Rugged construction for industrial use. With its all-stainless steel construction, the STU is built to last and for use in demanding industrial environments.
