About the Forklift Mounted Drum Grab DLF40 Series


If you own a forklift truck and also need to handle steel drums then why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone! Make the most possible use out of your forklift whilst lifting and moving your steel drums at the same time. Cost effective and efficient the DLF40 drum grab range is easy to fit, use, remove and store; it is a very simple piece of drum handling equipment yet highly effective.


This drum grab will easily slide over the forks of your forklift truck. Remember to check the specifications to ensure they will fit your specific truck. The grab is secured by screwing down the clamp until tight. For added security you may also like to add a safety chain to secure the attachment back to the main truck (not supplied)


A key advantage to these drum grabs is that the forklift driver need not leave the cab to handle the drum. Simply drive right up and position the girdle above the drum, slowly lower the forks thus the grab and the arms/girdle will pass around the drum, keep going until the grab is in the centre section of the steel drum where it will hold securely against the upper middle raised rib/ring of the drum when lifted. The drum can be set down automatically too, simply lower to the ground and reverse the truck away.


The DLF40 handles a single 210 litre steel drum but if you choose the DF40A model the girdle/arms are adjustable which enables the grab to be used with 100 litre drums as well as the standard 210 litre steel drums.

The final model is the DLF402, this is capable of handling two 210litre steel drums simultaneously.
