For lifting 210 Litre open top and tight head steel drums with L or XL rings.

Moving heavy drums around is a difficult task, and doing it by hand is likely to result in an injury of some sort to the people doing the work. A 210-litre drum is difficult to manoeuvre due to its size, and there are almost no good handholds to get a good grip even if it wasn’t too heavy to lift. Using machinery to move drums is the obvious way to go about this task; however, even then, the shape of the drum makes it difficult to get a good grip or attach a strap around the drum safely.

The Drum Tongs hoist attachment fits quickly and easily on the majority of cranes, overhead lifting machinery and other industrial lifting mechanisms, and allows the user to quickly and safely attach it to a 210-litre drum for lifting and moving.

This hoist attachment is ideal for a warehouse, manufacturing site or distribution centre; indeed, it is useful anywhere that large drums need to be moved or loaded on a regular basis.
