The DA30 drum stand or trolley can be used to tip a drum from vertical to horizontal; transport and deposit it elsewhere in a vertical position. The truck/trolley consists of a frame with two small forks, 4 wheels, a drum locking hook/catch, 4 drum rollers and 2 telescopic oak handles.
The two lower wheels are fixed whilst the two rear wheels are swivelling castors which enables easier movement and steering. The wooden oak handles provide comfort for the user whilst enabling good leverage to tilt the drum into position. This Drum stand is suitable for use with steel drums, 15, 30 & 55 gallon drums can be handled with the truck having a 275kg capacity.
Operation of the DA30 drum truck is straight forward, simply slide the two bottom forks under the drum and place the hook over the top rim to hold firmly in place. Extend the telescopic handles to provide good leverage. Now the stand can be tilted backwards, this is accomplished easier if you place a foot on the lower axle whilst pulling back on the handles, re-position your foot onto the top axle if necessary to completely tilt backwards so the drum is now in a horizontal position.
When the drum is horizontal it is possible to rotate it thanks to the 4 rollers on the cradle; this can be really helpful with mixing materials or emptying the drum. Using the handles and castors the drum can be transported easily on this carrier / stand.
When you no longer need the drum stand the handles can be retracted into the frame and it can be placed into storage until it is required again.
