One of the simplest of our fork lift truck attachments for drum handling the FDH drum grab range is perfect for low to medium volumes of drum moving applications.
There are a number of model variations in this range, they are;
The FDH-1 and FDH-2 for handling 1 & 2 , 210 litre steel drums respectively; The FDH-110 handles a smaller 110 litre steel drum; The FDH-1HD is a heavy duty option for 1 steel drum and the FDHU-1 & 2 handles 1 & 2 drums respectively of the steel or L & XL ringed plastic variety.
Each of the models in this range can handle different capacities with safe working loads ranging from 250 kg up to 1000 kg, you can find out more specifics in the tables below.
The simple design of this drum handling solution means it’s easy to fit, use, maintain and store. With long fork pockets the FDH range simply slides over the tines of a fork lift truck, they are secured in place with two heavy duty, zinc plated screw type ‘T’ clamps.
Whether you choose the single or double drum grab (the double models can also be used to handle a single drum too) they are automatic in operation meaning that the drums do not have to be handled at all. Once securely fitted to the fork lift it can be driven towards the drum, for steel drums the curved arms should be positioned under the top rolling loop and on large or extra large ring plastic drums under the top rim.
The hinged, curved arms will open up automatically as soon as they come into contact with the drum and fall back around the drum when you are as far in as you can go. When the forks are raised the drum will be lifted and the forces applied will ensure the arms will grip the drum tightly.
The FDHU models incorporate a two position, quick sliding adjuster to enable either steel and plastic drums to be lifted. The FDH-HD is a heavy duty drum grab which is perfect for scenarios where the contents of the drum have a higher mass to volume ratio. Stainless steel options may also be available on request and there is also an FDHM version for Mauser drums.
