Drum Clamp - Forklifts are actually meant to lift, move and store products placed on pallets. For facilities which use drums, they usually require an attachment in order to handle storing, lifting and moving them. There are a few different attachments that a business could use for all of your drum lifting, moving, and storing needs. These attachments are particularly used so as to deal with drum containers - thus there is no chance of damage to the product or drum container when they are moved, lifted or stored.
Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner is available in three and four tine designs. They are operational for the unloading and loading of drums off racks, vehicles and drum stands. This attachment is fully automatic, hence allowing the individual operating it 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 particular accessory is intended for drum pyramid stacking.
The drum grab is fork designed and mounted with the sole objective of handling steel drums which have rolling hoops. Even if the reason for the design was to handle steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab could accommodate the moving of extra large and large plastic drums. Drum capacity maximum is 220 liters for plastic barrels and 210 for steel drums with rolling hoops.
The drum rotator is another lift truck attachment which mounts onto the forks themselves. Their objective is to lift the drum and rotate it upside down. The drum is clasped into the drum rotator with a clamp which fits around the center of the drum. The rotation is executed by either a crank handle or a continuous loop chain. The crank handle is for operations which take place below shoulder level. For operations which must take place over shoulder level, the continual circle chain will be used.
Drum tines are straightforward fork mounted attachment that could be intended for unstacking or stacking 210-liter steel drums. Stacking involves nothing intricate, merely easy horizontal positioning of the drums. The carriage-mounted accessories reduce the load center of the drums.
Drum tongs are obtainable both automatic and semi-automatic versions that could be utilized in the open topped and tight head metal drum styles. The drum tongs can also be attached in many different ways to the forklift. One method is to attach them under a fork-mounted hook. Another way is to connect them to a carriage mounted jib or a fork-mounted jib. Both the automatic and semi-automatic have a drum capacity of 210 liters. With the automatic, there is no requirement for the individual operating it to ever leave the seat of the lift truck.
Rim Grip Handler
The Rip Grip Drum Handler is the optimal alternative for lift truck accessories, when there is a need to stockpile drums with limited area available. This accessory can be used on either one hundred twenty liter and two hundred ten litter drums. The Rim Grip Handler operates by using steel 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 unit used in the business is a zinc-plated handler, even if, this particular attachment is available in stainless steel for the food and drink industry.
