Drum Lifters & Their Uses

An astronomical amount of goods are shipped and transported in various types of drum. Steel drums, poly drums, stainless drums and many other types of drum are ideal for robust protection of easily damaged items like tomatoes or provide high security for chemicals and fuels. One thing they all have in common is they are heavy! Too heavy to lift!

And there it was; the light bulb moment- the drum lifter was born! But it wasn’t just that simple, there was more than just lifting a drum, there was a requirement for transportation, lifting, stacking and turning. There is pretty much a drum lifter for every application available from Lifting Equipment Store.

Types of Drum Lifters, Drum Lifting Attachments & Barrel Lifters

As we progress deeper into the material handling market we are adding more and more products to our website such as pallet trucks, sack trucks (coming soon) and not so recently; Drum Lifters, Barrel Lifters, Drum Lifting Attachments and general Drum Handling Equipment.

Our range is very versatile with solutions designed for removal of drums from pallets and simple drum dollies to more complex hydraulic drum handlers which are able to pick, lift, tip and rotate barrels and drums.

There are many Types of Drum Handling Equipment on todays market, but you want to be sure that you are getting something that has been fully certified to the relevant standards. This means: if you think you are getting an incredibly low deal you probably are buying an non-certified cheap import which if used in a business environment  should it fail and injure someone, there might be serious compensation on the companies behalf as law now requires all lifting and handling equipment to be inspected and certified to the relevant British standards.

Hydraulic Drum Trucks

These are easy to operate and can be used to lift and lower drums and barrels on and off pallets (if designed to do so) they can also tip and turn (again, if designed to do so).

Easy to use, simply push down on the pump which once clipped to the Drum will lift and hold the drum. The wheels and bars stabilise the load.
