Reel Rotator Fork Over

Transporting, lifting and rotating heavy reels

When transporting, lifting and rotating heavy reels, the Reel Rotator is the perfect choice! It is compact, very maneuverable and ensures the user ergonomically correct working conditions.

The Reel Rotator is available in four unique models, with manual or electric rotation, reel fastening/releasing and lifting.


  • Capacity 1,100 lbs
  • Handles vertical reels (eye-to-sky) placed on the floor or on a pallet and horizontal (eye-to-horizon) that are clear off the floor
  • Handles reel diameters from Ø4.7” to Ø50” (gripping arms can open 51”)
  • Manages soft as well as smooth and hard reels
  • Available with straddle legs.


  • None of the models can open the gripping arms by mistake
  • The reels can only be released, when placed on floor or pallet
  • The reel is fixed with gripping arms
  • The gripping arms have rubber-covered gripping pads to achieve the largest friction and to ensure a gentle grip
  • On models with electric rotation, it is only possible to rotate at lifting heights above 32.5”, so the gripping arms will not collide with the floor or legs.
