The Vestil DGS-AG Drum Handler provides an efficient solution for transporting 30, 55, and 85 gallon steel, plastic, and fiber drums using a forklift. Drum must have a strong enough top lip to support the weight of the drum. To operate, push the drum gripper arms around the drum just below the ridge of the drum. Next pull the chain which will operate the ratchet to tighten the arms in place for a firm hold on the drum (do not overtighten). After moving the drum to the desired location, release the ratchet tension and back away from the drum. This forklift drum transporter has a foldable design to use less storage space when not in use. The Vestil DGS-AG forklift drum handler features all welded steel construction with a powder coat finish for use in tough industrial environments.
