Drum Handling Attachments

Drum Clamp - Part # 21001

The oldest and most reliable design clamp for lifting and carrying drums.

Minimum maintenance required, and very easy to use.

Built within the profile of a drum, it will actually reach into

a stack of drums and select the one at the back.

Fully engineered and manufactured with quality steel

Carries a huge 1000 pound load

Fully self contained, works using gravity

Will grab drums that are touching each other

Special Builds available... headroom, fork width, reach,payload, etc

Takes only seconds to fit to your forklift, with no tools... as you lift it off the ground, it automatically attaches to the fork.

Double Drum Clamp - Part # 21002

Carries one or two drums, side by side.

Same properties as 21001, except a massive 2000 pound




Drum Nipper - Part # 21008

This attachment is the answer to all your needs...

The reversible head can handle steel drums, fibre

drums, and even the plastic drums. Gravity does

all the work - and the jaws automatically open when

you put the drum down. Max load is 800 pounds.

The whole head is hinged so you won't damage the drum as you approach it.


Double Drum Nipper - Part # 21009

Similar properties to the 21008, except one head is

mounted on an adjustable slide, so you can quickly

adjust the width to suit the type of barrel you are

handling. Max load is 800 pounds.



Drum Tipper - Part # 21006

Just an amazing item... Carries a massive 2000 pounds.

The drum is grabbed around 300 degrees, so will not crush the lightest barrel.. the drum cannot slip out. Fitted with a reliable hand pump, the arms are clamped around the drum. Then a switch locks the clamp, allowing the drum to be tipped under gravity. You control the speed, and just pump the empty drum back upright.

Many many options and configurations - ask for the leaflet file.


Double Drum Tipper - Part # 21026


Two drums - side by side.



Drum Dumper - Part # 21007

Similar to 21006 in look and operation... has no hydraulics, and the drum is held by a full girth strap and adjustable overcentre catch. Tipping is achieved by a simple pull cord, which releases the head to allow the drum to swing over 180 degrees. The operator can control the speed by resting the top of the drum against the receptacle. Max load is 1100 pounds.

Drum Holder - Part # 21012

Hydraulic arms clamp around the drum -

Carries 2000 pounds.

Self Dumping Bins .. Hoppers .. Swarf Bins

Fruit Bin Dumper - Part # 37120

Drive forks into the pockets, hook the two connectors into your auxiliary hydraulic circuit on the forklift, and it's fitted.

When ordering, advise details of your boxes and your fork tines.

Self Dumping Bins

Very rugged general purpose bins ... ideal to sit around the factory and collect offcuts, packaging and general waste. Or can be used as a bulk container - IBC - to feed product onto sorting benches.... fill hoppers or "bag-off" work stations.

The fork lift driver can see when they are full, pick one up when passing, run it out to the bulk waste bin, lift and touch the release cam on the front of the bin to the container. This releases the catch at the rear of the Bin, and the weight is shared between the forklift and the container. As the forks are raised, the bin begins to rotate forward. Will reach into the middle of the container. The bin is returned to ground, where it automatically re-sets it's catch. Off it goes back into the workplace.


Wheel option available for all models - part# 36100



Swarf Bin

Extra heavy duty bin ... will really take hard work.

The main difference is the closed mouth - will hold liquid to the brim.

Similar to the 27003, but mounted on a drive-in pocket set, as per the 21001 above. This item is mainly used in the transport industry, where the occasional roll is handled. The lost load centre is the length of the forks, so larger forklifts are needed for this task, or lighter reels.
