The four robust wheels on this drum loader include two swivelling castors which make the truck highly manoeuvrable and provide an easy means to transporting drums around the workplace as well as loading and off-loading. The DRF450 straddles pallets around its corners and can also be used for off loading drums from containment skids.
Using a claw type grab this drum loader firmly grips a steel drum at its top rim/lip; adjusting the height is easy and carried out by using your foot to pump the foot pedal. There is a valve type joystick which will lower the drum when turned slowly counter-clockwise. Once the drum comes to rest on the ground the claw grab will release the drum.
The manufacturer recommends that when transporting drums, you should ensure they are in the lowest position for ensured stability.
Lifting drums can be awkward and difficult to lift, especially when full. Using specialist drum lifting equipment can not only make drum lifting easier but also quicker and safer. Lifting Gear Direct can supply many different types of drum lifting equipment; some can be slung from a hoisting device and some can be fitted to a fork lift truck.
The latter are becoming more and more popular as they are easy to attach and add an extra use to your forklift making it more efficient. Our range of drum trucks is also quite extensive with a range of models with different drum handling capabilities.
