Five Gallon Pail Handler

Are you tired of lifting and pouring five-gallon pails all day? Morse’s Model 83 Pail Handler might be the answer to your aching back. This 125-pound machine can lift a five-gallon pail that weighs up to 150 lbs. We’re not exactly sure what material weighs 30 lbs per gallon, but maybe you need to move a pail of iron filings.

With its four-foot turning radius, the Model 83 maneuvers in tight spaces, and its 33″x33″ base rolls through a 36″ doorway with room to spare. The floor lock prevents the Pail Handler from moving while you lift and pour the payload. A hand crank raises the pail up to five feet high, and a hand wheel with a tilt-brake controls the pouring angle. To prevent operator injury, moving parts are enclosed.

There’s no price information available — you’ll need to request a quote directly from the manufacturer. We’re guessing the Pail Handler isn’t priced for average Joe Homeowner to use in his garage.

    Neat tool – we might invest in one or try to take a look at alternatives:

    Well this will be completely useless for a five gallon bucket of mercury that weighs 565 pounds.

    On the other hand, if you were a painter it would help pay for itself recovering the last half gallon of paint that the airless sprayer can’t suck out of the bucket.

    I thought this was handled by unskilled labor?

    Wow! What an amazing improvement over the model 82.

    I don’t kow about mercury, but Blockfill is 80-90 lbs a bucket and the Poulane used for painting production metal and stuff similar to powder coating can run up to 120 lbs or so a bucket. But I don’t see this as a good tool for painters.
