Drum Lifters & Drum Tongs
We have a large range of drum tongs & lifters which will enable you to lift all types of drums and barrels in a variety of ways.
All models are designed to be anchored to the hook on a hoisting device which gives you the means to lift the drums. The tongs and lifters can be secured to the drum, depending on which model you choose, this could be around the rim from the top with 2, 3 or 4 arm tongs or from the top & bottom rims together with a simple drum lifter.
Some of the drum tongs are semi-automatic, they work by locking into place via a lever when located on the drum and then released via unlocking the same lever; we also supply fully automatic models.
The drum tongs work by applying pressure to the tong at the drum rim whilst being slowly lifted, lifting from the central point on the tongs the weight of the drum applies enough forge to securely clamp the drum.
