As with our other forklift attachments the PB is easy to attach to the forks of your truck, they can be slid on easily and clamped with the two sturdy screw clamps. This model can stand up on its own too, which makes attachment even easier.
The PB is suitable for lifting both 210 litre steel drums and also the large or extra large ring plastic drums making this ideal if you handle both types.
One of the main benefits to this type of drum lifter is that is can be lifted and set down in tight spaces, leaving no spaces in-between, perfect for drum storage solutions, where tight packing is necessary. This is all thanks to the parrot beak type grab which grabs the drum at the rim.
The grab is like a jaw mechanism which is made from zinc plated hardened steel, once gripped onto the drum chimb the weight of the drum is used to ensure the jaws stay firmly locked in place. This robust grab means that the PB drum grab can be used in the most rugged areas without the drum coming loose.
At the lower end of the PB grab there is a cradle/crutch type support which incorporates a rubber lining; this offers additional support to the drum during transportation whilst the rubber lining offers a cushioning protection.
Because the PB drum grab relies on the weight of the drum for a secure grip this product should not be used for handling empty drums.
There is a good choice of models available in this range including models which can handle 1, 2 or 3 drums at a time, there are also models to handle different drum types, you can find out all the necessary details in the specification tables below.
