When you need to be able to move a drum around from one place to another within the workplace, or need to be able to get a barrel out of the storage area without having to lift it onto a trolley every time you want to move it, then a 55 gallon drum dolly is generally the best possible solution to your needs.  A drum dolly is a simple unit with 4 casters that the drum sits in, and allows it to be moved around.

Plastic Drum Dollies. There are a number of different ways of moving 55 gallon drum dollies around the workplace, but for maximum safety, staff should avoid pushing them.At the other end of the spectrum, an octagonal 55 gallon drum dollies with 8 wheels has a maximum capacity of 2,000 lb in weight, meaning that it is capable of carrying a fully laden barrel without staff having to worry about the safety aspect of the dolly collapsing.

 

There are a number of different ways of moving 55 gallon drum dollies around the workplace, but for maximum safety, staff should avoid pushing them.  The reason for this is that although it is highly unlikely that a drum could topple over in motion, placing a large mount of force at the very top of the drum may well cause it to fall, especially if it hits a hole in the ground or goes down a slope, which can happen without warning in many industrial environments. To counter the likelihood of this happening, most dollies and carts have a built in handle attached to the base, and this ensures that the majority of movement is below the center of gravity of the drum as it is moved around, and significantly reduces any toppling risk that there might be otherwise.

 

Whether you are using the drums as waste storage, and want to be able to make it easy to get around the facility in order to dispose of the contents properly, or have a stock of oil or other liquid within the drums and need to make it easy for staff to stock up with smaller quantities of liquid at their individual work stations, 55 gallon drum dollies make internal distribution a simple matter, and improve the overall efficiency of your processes at a relatively low investment cost.
