There are 5 model variations in this series of high lift drum trolleys. Two have parallel legs (DTH300 & 350) and 3 have 90 degree 'V' shaped legs (DTH350H, 400 & 450).
The foot operated hydraulics used both to grab the drum at the top rim and to lift it. The foot lever folds up out of the way for transportation and there are handles at the rear for pushing and steering the trolley.
The parallel leg models have low to the ground legs designed to go under a pallet and therefore ideal for easy pallet loading and off loading. The models with 90 degree legs have a higher base and fit around the corner of a pallet and slightly over the top for handling drums from the corners of a pallet. The DTH400 model incorporates adjustable legs which can be widened or narrowed in order to suit a range of pallets and sumps.
All models but the DTH400 come with two fixed front wheels and two rear swivel castors which are fitted with brakes for stable loading. The DTH400 has 4 castors 2 with brakes. The DTH350H and DTH400 have larger wheels which makes them suitable for rougher terrain.
Each model can lift either steel drums or both steel and poly drum types to a range of heights. The DTH350H has the highest maximum lifting height where the drum can be lifted to 1200mm. This and some other models can be used for loading and off loading from flatbed trucks and vans and so transporting drums to different locations is fairly simple.

Whilst this series of high lift drum trolleys are great for vehicle loading this is not always necessary so a more standard height drum trolley may be more suitable and cost effective.
