We have a range of special trucks which enable the easy placement and removal of drums from a pallet. Some of these have legs which straddle either side of the pallet and others will fit around the corner of the pallet. Our range also includes some drum stands/carriers which enable the drum to be tilted slightly (laid back) ready to wheel around to where they are needed. Our DA30 drum stand can also rotate the drum whilst horizontal for mixing the contents.

If you need a more powerful and easier truck which can also lift and rotate a drum for superior positioning and emptying efficiency then take a look at the DA40B hydraulic drum truck.
