Why Customers Stick With Grab O Matic Mechanical Fork Attachment Drum Handlers

Many of our customers have been using the Grab-O-Matic forklift drum handlers for over 30 years and they still come back for more

by Andy Bow | Wednesday 2 October 2019

That's because our mechanical fork attachment drum handlers are the best on the market.

Longstanding customers include Banner Chemicals and Rowse Honey in the UK and, overseas, range from Synthomer (Revertex) in Malaysia to Will & Hahnenstein in Germany.

Their forklift drum handlers are going strong despite daily use, to ensure safe and efficient workplace operations.

Grab-O-Matic: A lifetime investment

Ever since we started manufacturing our forklift drum handlers 60 years ago, our focus has been on quality materials and precision engineering for reliability.

Grab-O-Matics are manufactured entirely in the UK to ISO9001:2015 and all units are fully inspected, tested and certified before leaving the factory.

This gives end-users confidence that our forklift drum handlers won't fail, even in arduous conditions. Our customers operate from the Arctic Circle to the Arabian Gulf.

Grab-O-Matic offers great value for money because they are a lifetime investment, unlike lower quality products.

Annual servicing

The quality of our product is backed up by first class customer service, ensuring that spares are always available for immediate despatch to all corners of the world, minimising downtime.

St Clare Engineering Ltd also offers an annual service programme for Grab-O-Matic units in the UK, with a full inspection, service, repair if necessary, test and certification.

Moving with the times

We make a product that lasts but we're not stuck in the past. As drum types, shapes and materials changes, so does our forklift drum handling range. From the original rim gripper to waist grippers, overhead scissor grabs and base grippers, St Clare will have a drum handler to suit your needs.
