Drum Hand Trucks
Providing staff with the most effective and safest way of moving materials and equipment around the workplace is essential for any business that wants to boost efficiency and productivity. With a well thought out workspace, coupled with the right equipment, long term savings can be achieved through making it simple for staff to have the items and materials they need as soon as they need them. One of the most common sites in a modern industrial environment is the 55 gallon oil drum, and there are few factories and stock houses that will not have a large number of these useful items around, so having a proper drum hand truck to move them from one place to another is essential.
A drum hand truck has been designed to make moving heavy 55 Gallon drums from one place to another a quick and easy process. A clever design that properly distributes the weight of the full drum across the center axle of the cart is used. This means that even when a drum weighs up to 1000lb it can easily be moved around by a single person.
A drum hand truck is designed to easily slide under the bottom of the barrel, and then rotate back gently over its axle in order to allow the drum to be carried in an almost horizontal position. The distribution of weight makes this simple. And as a bonus, the whole truck can be further tilted in operation to allow for the contents of a drum to be poured out and disposed of appropriately.
In order to make it even easier to move your drum around, the drum hand truck is pushed like a trolley, and uses full sized 16” wheels that have pneumatic tires. The overall construction of the truck is as robust as possible, with high quality materials used throughout. It is possible to use either a flat plate to get under the barrel, or alternatively, a set of small forks that slip under the lip to hold the drum steady in use.
The drum hand truck comes complete with a useful bung nut wrench so that when the truck is used, members of staff will always be able to get access to the contents of the drum without having to go searching for additional equipment. It is this level of attention to detail throughout the construction and design of our standard drum hand truck that makes it such an immediate success. Sturdy enough to last for years if properly looked after, the truck is also finished in a highly resistant powder coating that will prevent any corrosion, and keeps the truck looking smart for a long time.
Thanks to the ease of use that the drum hand truck offers, staff will find it increasingly easy to get things into the right place, and distribute the contents of 55 gallon drums to the places within your facility where they are most required. Better internal distribution of raw materials will inevitably create a much more efficient environment and a better bottom line in the long run.
