How Will Fork Mount Drum Handler Change Your Industry?

Heavily loaded drums while manual transport can impose a heavy effort, increase chances of workplace injuries and hinder the time and efficiency of personnels. An industrial staple, the powered drum lifter was introduced to the market.; the fork-mount drum mover is engineered to enhance safety and increase efficiency while handling plastic, steel and fiber drums. In essence, the automatic drum palletizer is designed for grabbing, lifting, and carrying the barrels, by steel, fiber, or plastic drum grabber forklift attachment, as an easy and effective custom drum handling equipment.

Uses Across Industries

For any industry dealing with charging, embarking and transport of these heavy barrels are a routine task. Categorized among the crush point prone activities, manual movement of barrels is an outdated method, replaced by motorized barrel movers.

How it Works?

A drum attachment is a solution that replaces manual handling that connects a barrel to a forklift truck. This powered drum lifter proves effective when there is a frequent handling of barrels involved. The rotating drum lifter is simply designed to attach to the drum handling equipment forklift attachment truck with a simple yet secure mechanism to empty, tilt, mix and transport a loaded or empty barrel.

While there are four sizes of industrial drum, the drum racker is designed with adjustable bolting to cater for any sizing demands. In addition to forklifts, the drum attachments can be used with other fork-mount drum mover, such as cranes. On such occasions, the forklift drum clamp tines are replaced with carriage mounts. Therefore, the attachments facilitate both lifting with a hook and bottom lifts.
