Drum Clamps

Forklifts are actually designed to move, lift and store items placed on pallets. For facilities that make use of drums, they usually require an attachment so as to deal with moving, storing and lifting them. There are some different attachments which a company could utilize for all your drum moving, storing and lifting requirements. These attachments are particularly utilized to be able to deal with drum containers - hence there is no risk of damage to the item or drum container when they are lifted, stored or moved.

Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner can be utilized to load and unload drums off of drum stands, vehicles and racks. These are presented in three and four tine models. This attachment is totally automatic, hence allowing the operator to be able 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 attachment is utilized for drum pyramid stacking.

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

The Rotator
The drum rotator is a forklift accessory that mounts on to the forks themselves. The purpose of the drum rotator is to lift the drum and rotate it upside down. The drum fits in to the rotator with a steel clamp that fits over the middle of the drum. The rotation is executed by either a continuous loop chain or a crank handle. The crank handle is intended for operations which happen below shoulder level. For operations which must occur above shoulder level, the continual circle chain will be used.

The drum tines are simple fork or carriage mounted attachments. They are designed for unstacking and stacking 210-liter steel drums. Stacking involves nothing elaborate, just simple horizontal placement of the drums. The carriage-mounted accessories lessen the load center of the drums.

Automatic Tongs
Drum tongs are obtainable both automatic and semi-automatic units which can be used in the tight head and open topped metal drum styles. The drum tongs could also be connected several various ways to the forklift. One way is to connect them underneath a fork-mounted hook. One more way is to attach them to a fork-mounted jib or a carriage mounted jib. Either the automatic and semi-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
When drums need storage with limited area obtainable, the Rim Grip Drum Handler is the ideal choice in drum forklift accessories. This particular accessory would work for either the 210 L drums as well as 120 L drums. The Rim Grip Handler operates by utilizing steel jaws so as to hold the edge of the drum.
