Drum Handling Equipment Offers Many Benefits:

  • Safer workplace. Full drums are heavy and are often filled with hazardous liquids. Moving them can be difficult for a worker or multiple workers to move manually, and attempting to do so can lead to injuries, accidents, and spills. Using the proper drum handling equipment makes the work easier, which protects employees and creates a safe workspace.

  • Greater efficiency. Drum handling equipment makes moving and pouring drums much easier. When workers don’t have to struggle through the handling of drums, it means they can do the job faster and get more done in the same amount of time.

  • Increased productivity. When workers are able to handle drums easily, more work is completed at a faster rate. You can expect a significant increase in productivity, meaning your business can produce more and accomplish more during the workday.

  • Monetary gains. Your business will be more profitable because of all of the above. Avoiding worker injury, greater efficiency, increased productivity —all of these allow you to save money and make more money for your business.

Choosing the Best Drum Handling Equipment for your Workplace

Every business is different and will have different drum handling needs. CMH offers the following types of drum handling equipment:

  • rotating drum handling equipment photoDrum transporters are made to aid in the ergonomic handling of all types of industrial pails and drums.

  • Portable drum jacks are compact and ergonomic. The grapple system holds the drum into the steel saddle securely before lifting it up. The drum is held in an upright position during movement, which allows for the transport of open drums without worrying about spillage.

  • Drum lifter/rotator/transporter is a three-in-one device. This equipment comes with a hand pump that can lift drums from ground level to a height of 68 inches. The hand gear maintains the controlled 360-degree rotation of the drum. It also comes equipped with a floor lock that will stabilize 55-gallon steel, plastic and fiber drums.

  • Rotating drum carts can handle loads up to 1,000 pounds. The rotating drum trolley features two retractable handles for easy one-person operation. The steel handle is included to securely hold the drum during tipping, helping you to keep drum content mixed.

  • Combination drum and hand trucks serve a dual purpose. The curved frame accommodates 5 gallon pails and kegs and can handle loads up to 800 pounds. If you are constantly moving drums and other equipment by hand, this equipment will save a lot of time and energy.

  • Drum clutchers latch around the drum and are used with cranes or fork lifts. The safety latch secures the drum when it is in motion. The clutcher is made of heavy steel to allow for a durable transport.
