Lift - Shift - Stack - Tip Drums... Barrels


Tilting Drum Rack Part #21701

This high strength steel drum stand gives greater safety and user comfort to a very old method of dispensing liquids from drums..

With the lever in place, the operators are in full control ... they need not touch the drum with their hands, their feet are positioned well clear of the task, there is no need to grunt and shove.... the lower tags automatically move under the drum.... and slippery floors cease to be a danger.

Drum Mover - Part # 21915

These robust little trolleys are so easy to use … just push it up to the drum, pump the handle until the drum raises a few centimetres off the ground, and move it to where you want.

Girdle Type Drum Lift n Tip - Part # 21713

Who knows how many thousand of these drum handling machines are working in Australian Industry.....

Simple, reliable... a true workhorse.

A push - around trolley, approach the drum, manually connect the girdle around the girth of the drum and click the overcentre catch. Back to the operating position - close the hydraulic valve by turning - 2-3 pumps of the pedal, and the drum is off the ground. As you continue to pump the pedal, the parallelogram arrangement of the control chains keep the drum upright. Turn the handle on the tipping gearbox, and the drum will rotate. A full 180 degrees if you want... or just decant your measure and return to upright.

Pallet Moving & Positioning

Adjustable Pallet Positioner - Part # 49707

When a pallet needs to be loaded or unloaded by hand, the operator would normally need to bend down to stack the bottom layers. He would also need to reach to the back of the pallet, or walk around it to access all edges.

These two actions can add up to long term back pain, loss of manhours, increased insurance costs and job dissatisfaction..... not a happy scenario.

The EZ-Loader can remove the problems.

Charge the airspring with shop pressure air and disconnect supply [use airline fitting supplied with the machine]. The turntable will rise to 30" [ 76cm] above ground level. Add the pallet, and working height is 36" [90cm] - very comfortable. Especially when a touch will cause the pallet to turn, presenting the opposite side for loading. After loading one or more layers of product, you will be reaching up to stack the goods.... time to adjust the air pressure. Turn the knob until the top of the stack is at your preferred height, to suit YOU. from now on, when you add more product, the pallet will sink, keeping your work height where you want it.

Works the same when unloading pallets.

When the pallet is loaded, the forklift removes it, allowing the airspring to raise the turntable back up to 36".


Unless of course, you start to load a different... heavier or lighter ... product. Then it's one quick twist of the wrist - no need for mechanics to re-calibrate the springs.
