Drum Trucks are probably the most commonly used piece of drum handling equipment and offer an easy and safe solution for the
transporting of different types of drums. Drum trucks are economical and
easy to store and usually facilitate loading and unloading without the
need to physically touch the drum itself. They work on a similar
principal to a pallet truck, in that they enable you to easily lift and
transport drums and barrels around the work place. These trucks and drum trolleys are
perfect for use in warehouses, storage facilities, factories and more.
Drum trucks and drum carriers come in many different forms to enable different ways of handling your drums. Always refer to the drum truck specifications to make sure that it will be compatible with the type of drums you will be handling.
Types of Drum Trucks and Drum CarriersWe have a wide variety of drum trucks and drum carriers available which are capable of handling the drums in different ways.
Some trucks can tip a drum to facilitate easy emptying or perhaps cleaning; some trucks can raise the drum up to truck height to make loading and unloading a lorry easier like the WA30B model.
We have a range of special trucks which enable the easy placement and removal of drums from a pallet. Some of these have legs which straddle either side of the pallet and others will fit around the corner of the pallet. Our range also includes some drum stands/carriers which enable the drum to be tilted slightly (laid back) ready to wheel around to where they are needed. Our DA30 drum stand can also rotate the drum whilst horizontal for mixing the contents.
If you need a more powerful and easier truck which can also lift and rotate a drum for superior positioning and emptying efficiency then take a look at the DA40B hydraulic drum truck.
