This simple piece of drum handling equipment can stand upright on its own thanks to the incorporated kick stand. There is a small cradle in-between the two robust, wheels which are 250mm in diameter and 50mm deep. These wheels make for smooth transportation and with a little lubrication every now and then will keep them running smoothly.
The drum grip or grab on this truck can be adjusted in height to enable it to handle different sized drums. 15, 30 and 50 gallon drums are easily fitted.
The jaw of the grab should be re-positioned so that it is about 10mm higher than the drum rim initially. Position the truck as close as possible to the drum; Lower the upper jaw of the grab until it reaches the drum rim then place your foot on the truck kick stand and pull the lever to engage the lower jaw of the grab on the drum’s rim.
Next you can tilt the drum back towards yourself aided by your foot on the kick stand and both hands pulling back on the handlebars. The drum will seat into the lower cradle between the wheels to support is whilst being moved.
To remove the drum you simply ensure it is vertical and rested on the ground. Then you can release the jaws and pull the truck away.
