Drum Clamps

Forklifts are truly designed to move, lift and store items placed on pallets. For facilities which use drums, they often require an attachment to be able to handle storing, lifting and moving them. There are some various attachments which a company can utilize for all of your drum lifting, moving, and storing needs. These attachments are specially utilized in order to deal with drum containers - therefore there is no chance of damage to the item or drum container whenever they are moved, lifted or stored.

Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner is offered in three and four tine designs. They are utilized for the loading and unloading of drums off drum stands, racks and vehicles. This attachment is fully automatic, hence enabling the the one operating it to operate all from the comfort of the forklift seat. Able to move large and extra large plastic drums, steel, its capacity is 210 liters. This particular attachment is intended for drum pyramid stacking.

The drum grab is fork mounted and is designed with the sole objective of handling steel drums which have rolling hoops. Even if the reason for the design was to deal with steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab could accommodate the transporting of large and extra large plastic drums. Drum capacity maximum is 210 liters for steel drums with rolling hoops and 220 liters for plastic drums.

The Rotator
The drum rotator is actually a lift truck accessory that mounts on to the blades themselves. The purpose of the drum rotator is to be able to lift the drum and rotate it upside down. The drum fits in to the rotator using a steel clamp which fits over the center of the drum. The rotation is done by either a crank handle or a continuous loop chain. The crank handle is used for operations which occur below shoulder level. For operations that should take place over shoulder level, the continual loop chain will be used.

Drum tines are simple fork mounted accessory which could be used for unstacking or stacking 210-liter metal drums. Stacking requires nothing elaborate, merely easy horizontal positioning of the drums. The carriage-mounted attachments reduce the load center of the drums.

Automatic Tongs
Drum tongs come in both semi-automatic and automatic models that could be utilized in the open topped and tight head steel drum kinds. The drum tongs can also be attached several various ways to the forklift. One way is to connect them under a fork-mounted hook. Another way is to connect them to a fork-mounted jib or a carriage mounted jib. Either the semi automatic and the automatic have a drum capacity of 210 liters. With the automatic, there is no need for the individual operating it to ever leave the seat of the forklift.

Rim Grip Handler
Whenever drums require storage space with limited area obtainable, the Rim Grip Drum Handler is the ideal choice in drum forklift accessories. This particular accessory would work for both the two hundred ten liter drums in addition to one hundred twenty liter drums. The Rim Grip Handler works by utilizing steel jaws to be able to hold the edge of the drum. It picks the drum up and sets it down without needing any room between the drums. The average model in the trade is a zinc-plated handler, though, this particular attachment comes accessible in stainless steel for the food and drink market.
