These attachments are specially used to be able to deal with drum containers - thus there is no risk of damage to the item or drum container when they are lifted, stored or moved.
Drum Positioner And Grab
The drum positioner is offered in three and four tine designs. They are operational for the unloading and loading of drums off drum stands, racks and vehicles. This particular attachment is totally mechanical, hence enabling the person 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 attachment is intended for drum pyramid stacking.
The drum grab could be mounted to the forks, with a designed objective of dealing with metal drums which have rolling hoops. Though the original reason for the design was to deal with steel drums with rolling hoops, the drum grab can help accommodate plastic drums as well. Drum capacity maximum is 220 liters for plastic barrels and 210 for steel drums with rolling hoops.
The drum rotator is another forklift attachment that mounts onto the blades themselves. Their objective is to be able to pick up the drum and turn it upside down. The drum is clamped into the drum rotator with a clamp that fits around the center of the drum. The rotation is executed by either a continuous loop chain or a crank handle. The crank handle is used for operations that happen below shoulder level. For operations which should take place over shoulder level, the continuous circle chain will be used.
The drum tines are carriage mounted or simple fork attachments. They are used for unstacking and stacking 210-liter metal drums. Stacking requires nothing fancy, just easy horizontal placement of the drums. The carriage-mounted attachments reduce the load center of the drums.
Drum tongs are available both automatic and semi-automatic versions which can be utilized in the open topped and tight head metal drum kinds. The drum tongs can also be attached in many various ways to the lift truck. One way is to connect them beneath a fork-mounted hook. One more way is to attach them to a carriage mounted jib or a fork-mounted jib. Either the semi automatic and the automatic have a drum capacity of 210 liters. With the automatic, there is no need for the person operating it to ever leave the seat of the lift truck.
