Slide the DG50 onto the forks or a fork lift truck and tighten with the retaining screw bolts and you can begin your drum handling task with confidence, without even needing to leave the driving seat.
The attachment contains special pockets which enable most truck forks to be driven straight in; the size of the pockets is approx 136mm x 38mm so ensure it will fit your fork lift before purchase.
The width if the jaws on this drum attachment can be adjusted at the central axle to accommodate different sizes.
The DG50, as with the other DG range of drum grabs there is no need to leave your seat to manually handle the drum. Once the drum attachment makes contact with the drum the jaws will open up to accommodate the drum circumference and close accordingly. Once the drum is lifted the forces applied by the weight of the drum will keep the grab firmly clamped until the weight is taken off by setting the drum down again.
We can offer an excellent range of fork lift mountable drum handling equipment; some lift the drum from the top rim, some from the centre and some from the bottom. We have drum attachments which can turn the drum to make emptying its contents easier as well as a super range of drum trucks for easy transportation of drums around the workplace. Drum lifting solutions include a range of drum tongs and grabs which are slung from a crane or hoist for higher lifting operations.
