WB01372_.gif (406 bytes) Drum Grippers








The Drum Gripper makes it easy to pick up one or two steel drums without leaving the seat of the fork truck. Simply slip the forks into the fork tubes, fasten the safety restraint and the Drum Gripper is ready to go. The knuckle gripping system is lowered around the drum, gripped tightly, and then lifted into the air. Drum is automatically released by lowering the forks. All models feature hinged folding design for storage. Safety restraint included. Welded steel construction with a baked-in powder-coated toughness.

Models DGS-A, DGD-A, and DGS-A-PSD features adjustable-width arms for use with both 30-gallon and 55-gallon steel drums.

model DGS-AG

The Drum Gripper creates a functional and efficient way to transport drums from workstation to workstation.  The welded steel construction with a powder coat finish is durable and long lasting in the harshest of environments.  Once the drum gripper arms are placed around the drum, simply use the ratchet to tighten the arms in place for a firm hold on the drum.  After moving the drum to the desired location, release the ratchet tension and un-ratchet until drum is free.  The unit has a foldable design for less storage space when not in use. Works with 30, 55, and 85 gallon steel, plastic, and fiber drums.
