Drum Clamp - Forklifts are actually meant to move, lift and store items placed on pallets. For companies which make use of drums, they usually need an attachment in order to handle moving, storing and lifting them. There are a few various attachments that a company could use for all your drum storing, lifting and moving requirements. These attachments are specifically designed so as to deal with drum containers - hence there is no risk of damage to the item or drum container whenever they are moved, lifted or stored.
Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner can be used in order to load and unload drums off of racks, drum stands and vehicles. These are presented in three and four tine models. This particular accessory is fully automatic, thus allowing the operator to be able to operate all from the comfort of the forklift seat. Able to move steel, large and extra large plastic drums, its capacity is 210 liters. This accessory is utilized for drum pyramid stacking.
The drum grab could be mounted to the forks, with a designed objective of dealing with metal drums that have rolling hoops. Though the original reason for the design was to handle steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab could help accommodate plastic drums too. Drum capacity maximum is 210 liters for steel drums with rolling hoops and 220 liters for plastic drums.
The drum rotator is one more forklift attachment that mounts onto the forks themselves. Their objective is to pick up the drum and rotate it upside down. The drum is clasped into the drum rotator with a clamp that fits around the middle of the drum. The rotation is executed by either a continuous loop chain or a crank handle. The crank handle is for operations which happen beneath shoulder level. For operations that must take place above shoulder level, the continual loop chain will be utilized.
The drum tines are carriage mounted or simple fork accessories. They are used for unstacking and stacking 210-liter steel drums. Stacking involves nothing intricate, just simple horizontal placement of the drums. The carriage-mounted attachments reduce the load center of the drums.
Drum tongs come in both automatic and semi-automatic versions that could be used in the open topped and tight head steel drum kinds. The drum tongs can also be connected several various ways to the lift truck. One way is to attach them beneath a fork-mounted hook. Another way is to connect them to a carriage mounted jib or a fork-mounted jib. Both the semi automatic and the automatic have a drum capacity of 210 liters. With the automatic, there is no requirement for the operator to ever leave the seat of the lift truck.
Rim Grip Handler
When drums need storage space with limited spacing accessible, the Rim Grip Drum Handler is the perfect choice in drum forklift accessories. This attachment will work for either the two hundred ten liter drums along with one hundred twenty liter drums. The Rim Grip Handler works by utilizing metal jaws so as to grab the edge of the drum. It lifts the drum and sets it down without needing any room between the drums. The standard unit used in the business is a zinc-plated handler, even if, this accessory comes obtainable in stainless steel for the food and drink market.
