A Forklift Drum Handler Benefits

Forklift Drum Handler Benefits

Forklift operators might waste a lot of time preparing to lift and move 30 gallon and 55 gallon barrels if they don't have the necessary tools. A forklift drum handler can help your team operate more effectively by balancing bulky drums on forks or manually moving them.

The Convenience of A Drum Handler

To get the most out of forklift operators working a busy shift, you want them to stay at the controls and let the machinery handle the hard lifting. Single 30 gallon and 55 gallon barrels (up to 1,000 pounds) may be handled by drum handling equipment like the Vestil FMDL-1 without the forklift operator having to leave the controls.

These drum handlers can handle steel, plastic, or fiber drums (open or closed head), as long as the lid is sturdy enough to sustain the weight of the contents. Operators should secure the drum with the provided ratchet strap while traveling over uneven terrain to ensure a safe and effective delivery. This degree of comfort will ensure that your business runs smoothly.

Two Drum - Drum Handler For Forklift 

The Vestil FMDL-2 accomplishes the same task with twice the capacity if you need to lift and transfer two 30 gallon or 55 gallon barrels at once (2,000 pounds). Durability and strength come from the all-welded steel structure and powder coat finish. OSHA-compliant drum handlers, the FMDL-1 and FMDL-2, are available.

The use of a forklift drum handler will improve the safety and efficiency of your work process. Picking up, transferring, and releasing cargo with forklifts will save time and energy while assuring safe operation throughout the process.
