ETU – Electric Tipping Unit:
Ergonomic Tipping Tool for Drum Lifting Equipment and Roll Lifters

The electric tipping unit (ETU) is able to tip heavy loads forward in a controlled manner. This tipping tool is typically combined with a linear clamp and mounted on drum lifting equipment or roll lifters.

Usually mounted on our drum lifting equipment or roll lifters, this fully electrically powered version of our tipping unit is perfect for tipping or rotating loads such as drums and rolls.

Normally combined with an electric linear clamp (ELC), the ETU allows for the load to be tipped forward using an electric motor and worm gear. Since the worm gear is self-locking, the load is held safely in position also after the rotation has stopped.

The tipping motion is easily controlled using the remote control on the lifter.


  • Fully electrically powered
  • Rugged construction for industrial use. With its all-stainless steel construction, the ETU is built to last and for use in demanding industrial environments.
  • Available in hygienic design for use in cleanrooms and the food/beverage industry.
