Every industrial site knows that speed and safety are two factors that are desired for every project. However, many think that there are some instances in which it is impossible to have both simultaneously. For example when it comes to moving fuel drums, standard fork lifts can easily hold the weight but struggle to balance the drums due to their unique shape. Oftentimes crew members are required to stop their current jobs to load up fuel drums into trucks and unload them at the proper destination. The Workplace Depot is excited to offer the Drum Lifter, a unit designed to make the safe transport of fuel drums a quick and easy endeavor.

What is The Purpose of This Product?

Transporting fuel drums is a delicate process that requires precision in order to do safely. However, no one likes slowing down a project and disrupting other aspects of a given task to move these. The drum lifter is designed to attach to any standard fork lift to move drums securely to their destination in a timely manner. The unit is also automatic, meaning the driver is not tasked with learning to use any new devices.

Where Might This Product be Used?

This product can prove useful at any location where fuel drums are moved frequently. A few drums can be moved around rather easily by on-site staff and technicians, but large quantities of drums call for a speedier solution. This unit is also valuable for those sites where drivers want a tool that will work for them, instead of the other way around.

Who Might Use This Product?

Any construction project manager may find that this unit makes a great addition to the site. Though compact in design, its robust construction allows it to easily hold standard fuel drums. Any fork lift driver can make use of this accessory quickly, as the unit’s fully-automatic functionality saves the driver from having to master any new controls.

Additional Product Information and Specifications

The drum lifter secures to standard fork lifts with zinc plated thumb screws and has minimum moving parts. Not only does this make the unit more low-maintenance than other accessories, but it makes it safe to attach and reattach as needed. With a 125x50mm maximum fork size, the unit can work on plenty of industry-standard models. We will match any price and can deliver the unit in 3-4 working days. Improve your operation’s output without sacrificing on precision; order the drum lifter today!
