Drum Clamp - Forklifts are meant to handle moving, lifting and storing pallets. For businesses that deal with items inside drums, you have to use an attachment so as to lift, store and move them. There are numerous drum forklift accessories that you could obtain for all your drum moving, lifting and storing requirements. These attachments are specifically used to deal with drum containers - hence there is no risk of damage to the product or drum container when they are stored, moved or lifted.
Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner is existing in three or four tine designs. They are used for the loading and unloading of drums off vehicles, drum stands and racks. This attachment is totally automatic, thus enabling the operator to operate all from the comfort of the lift truck seat. Able to move steel, large and extra large plastic drums, its capacity is 210 liters. This particular attachment is intended for drum pyramid stacking.
The drum grab could be mounted to the forks, with a designed purpose of dealing with metal drums that have rolling hoops. Even if the initial purpose for the design was to deal with steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab can help accommodate plastic drums also. Drum capacity maximum is 210 liters for steel drums with rolling hoops and 220 liters for plastic drums.
The drum rotator is a lift truck attachment 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 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 meant for operations which take place below shoulder level. For operations that should take place over shoulder level, the continual loop chain will be utilized.
The drum tines are simple fork or carriage mounted accessories. They are designed for stacking and unstacking 210-liter steel drums. Stacking requires nothing fancy, merely simple horizontal placement of the drums. The carriage-mounted enhancements lessen the load center of the drums.
Drum tongs are available both automatic and semi-automatic versions which could be used in the open topped and tight head metal drum kinds. The drum tongs can even be connected several various ways to the forklift. One method is to connect them beneath a fork-mounted hook. One more way is to attach them to a fork-mounted jib or a carriage mounted jib. Both the automatic and semi-automatic have a drum capacity of 210 liters. With the automatic, there is no requirement for the person operating it to ever leave the seat of the forklift.
Rim Grip Handler
The Rip Grip Drum Handler is the perfect choice for forklift attachments, whenever there is a necessity to store drums with limited space obtainable. This accessory could be utilized on both one hundred twenty liter and two hundred ten litter drums. The Rim Grip Handler functions by using metal jaws to grab the edge of the drum. It lifts the drum and sets it down without needing any room between all the drums. The typical model in the business is a zinc-plated handler, even though, this particular attachment comes available in stainless steel for the food and drink market.
