    Description

    Our range of semi automatic drum tongs allows drums to be picked up from the overhead vertical position via a forklift truck (yoke required) or slung beneath an overhead crane hook. This makes the ideal drum handler for when drums are inaccessible for lifting from the side.

    When the lifting tongs are positioned over the drum, a manual release lever will allow for the drum lifting tongs to locate and lock underneath the lip of the drum, allowing for safe and secure drum lifting. Re-setting of the lever when the drum is positioned back on the ground, allows the drum lifting tongs to unlock and release their grip of the drum

    Our range of drum lifting tongs can come supplied with either 500kg lifting capacity or heavy duty 1000kg lifting capacity and suitable for either 210 litre steel drums or 210 litre plastic mauser drums

    With a mild steel construction, the drum lifting tongs are painted in high gloss yellow for added visibility, and like all our forklift attachments, come supplied fully tested and certified for compliance with the latest Health & Safety Regulations.


    Before any attachment is fitted to your machine, please check with the manufacturer as it may affect the trucks rated capacity and therefore a new capacity plate will be required to use the machine safely.
