Drum Clamps - Forklifts are truly utilized to lift, move and store products placed on pallets. For facilities which use drums, they normally need an attachment in order to handle moving, storing and lifting them. There are several different attachments which a company could utilize for all of your drum storing, lifting and moving needs. These attachments are specifically meant in order to deal with drum containers - hence there is no chance of damage to the product or drum container when they are lifted, stored or moved.
Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner is accessible in three or four tine models. They are operational for the loading and unloading of drums off racks, vehicles and drum stands. This accessory is completely mechanical, thus allowing the person operating it to operate all from the comfort of the lift truck seat. Able to move large and extra large plastic drums, steel, its capacity is 210 liters. This particular attachment is designed for drum pyramid stacking.
The drum grab is fork mounted and is designed with the sole objective of handling steel drums that have rolling hoops. Although the reason for the design was to handle steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab can accommodate the moving 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 drum rotator is actually a lift truck accessory which mounts on to the blades themselves. The objective of the drum rotator is to lift the drum and rotate it upside down. The drum fits in to the rotator using a steel clamp which fits over the middle of the drum. The rotation is done by either a continuous loop chain or a crank handle. The crank handle is meant for operations that happen beneath shoulder level. For operations that should take place above shoulder level, the continuous circle chain will be used.
The drum tines are simple fork or carriage mounted accessories. They are meant for unstacking and stacking 210-liter metal drums. Stacking involves nothing fancy, merely easy horizontal placement of the drums. The carriage-mounted enhancements reduce the load center of the drums.
Drum tongs are accessible both semi-automatic and automatic versions which could be used in the tight head and open topped steel drum kinds. The drum tongs can also be attached in many various ways to the lift truck. One method is to connect them under a fork-mounted hook. One more way is to connect 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 operator to ever leave the seat of the forklift.
Rim Grip Handler
The Rip Grip Drum Handler is the optimal choice for forklift accessories, whenever there is a need to stockpile drums with inadequate space obtainable. This attachment could be used on either 120L and 210L drums. The Rim Grip Handler works by utilizing steel jaws to hold the edge of the drum. It lifts the drum and puts it down without requiring any room between all of the drums. The standard model used in the trade is a zinc-plated handler, though, this attachment comes available in stainless steel for the food and drink industry.
