Shop our Online Catalog: Drum Handling Equipment

There are a number of different models of rotating drum carts available to buy now from Easy Rack, and all feature the same high standards of construction that include heavy duty steel throughout55 Gallon drum carts are the safest and most efficient tool to use in the retrieving, rotating, transporting, and tipping of drums.

Attempting to maneuver drums from the vertical position to the horizontal position can be dangerous, inefficient, and costly. Injuries can easily result when workers try to roll the drum onto its side or maneuver it into the horizontal position with inadequate tools. Back injuries can easily result, costing valuable human resource hours, workman’s comp. expenses, and potential, additional liabilities.

Material losses can also result from damage to drums resulting in spills, some of which may result in exposure to hazardous chemicals. Even without these worst case scenarios, the process of manual drum handling is inefficient, costing companies needless man hour expenses. With a drum carrier designed for keeping the drum secure during rotation, transport, and tipping, the likelihood of damage resulting in a costly, or even worse, hazardous material spilldrastically reduced to negligible odds when the devise is correctly operated.

55 gallon drum can safely handle from 500 to 1,000 pounds, depending on model number. Several features make the unit easy for an individual user to safely maneuver. First, the carriage travels on two rigid front casters and two swivel rear casters. This allows the user to pivot the unit in tight spaces by applying pressure to retractable wooden handles that are used to load, transport, and position the drum. The unit cart also includes steel handles that are used to secure the drum during transport and tipping for content dispensing.

Drums are also more stable when manipulated with this device because they are secured from the backside of the unit byA rotating drum cart uses a simple but effective design to allow sealed oil drums to be picked up and then moved quickly and effectively. The elegant design is easy to use. steel arms. This prevents the drum from slipping as it is leveraged into the horizontal position. Precise maneuverability is ensured by the combination of rigid front casters that keep the unit from deviating off course, and swivel rear casters that allow the user to steer the assembly from behind and maneuver the drum into position with minimal force, strain, or risk of injury. Easy Rack can order units with polyolefin casters for finished floor surfaces or combination casters built around a rugged steel core with a polyolefin coating on the wheels. Rough floors and outdoor areas can be better traversed by steel casters.

Some 55 gallon drum carts also feature rollers located in the cradle area that will allow the user to turn the drum up to 360 degrees to position it for tipping, opening, and pouring. This process can be made even more efficient by investing in optional steel handle that dual functions as a bung nut wrench to open drums ready for pouring.

Even without the worst case scenarios of worker injury, liability costs, and loss resulting from damaged drums and spilled contents, organizations without the proper drum handling equipment are facing a steady drain on their profit margins resulting from the needless downtime generated by the manual rotation, transportation, and tipping of drums. 55 gallon drum carts offer a safer, quicker, and more precise means of getting drums positioned and emptied with minimum downtime and risk of damage or injury.
