About the Forklift Mounted Drum Lifter DLFG Series


There are 2 models in this range, the first can handle 1 steel drum and the second can handle 2 steel drums. Both models operate in the same way. Top lifting capacities are 360kg or 2 x 360kg for the 2 drum model.

The DLFG drum lifter is easy to mount on the forks of your truck. Simply slide them on and secure with the rear screw clamps. Please ensure you check the size of the forks against the size of the fork pockets on the device to ensure they will fit. These can be found under the specifications tab above.


When the forklift is driven towards the drum, and it rests against the lower rear support guide the top grab has an automatic, positive grip action and will automatically lock onto the top rim and its ready to lift. When setting the drum back down, as soon as the drum rests firmly on solid ground and the weight taken off the device the grab/clamp will auto-release, so you can simply reverse away.


The grabber clamp can be adjusted to 3 different heights in order to best suit your operation.

Made from powder coated heavy duty steel, these devices are easy to keep clean and maintain.


Make the most out of your forklift truck with one of these forklift mounted drum lifters DLFG1/2 and automatically lift and drop your 210 litre steel drums wherever you need them.
