Drum Trucks or drum trolleys 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 dollies are great to push around drums and they can work great as an oil drum trolley. Drum trolley and drum dollies 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. Lifting drums higher is another matter, check out the drum lifting range for a solution.
These drum trucks, drum trolleys and drum dollies 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.
A drum dolly is the simplest form of drum moving equipment as they are just a platform on wheels where the drum is placed and then pushed around. Drum trucks on the other hand come in a wide range of styles which can handle the drums and barrels in different ways. Lift, tilt, rotate, empty & stack are all doable with the right drum truck.
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.
