Fully automatic drum lifting tongs for use with a forklift truck yoke or hoist hook.

FADT-553


When drums are inaccessible for lifting from the side - fully automatic drum tongs allow drums to be picked up from the overhead vertical position via a forklift truck yoke/hook (not included) or slung beneath an overhead crane / hoist hook.

The fully automatic operation of the drum lifting tongs means the whole drum handling operation can be performed without the forklift operator having to leave the seat of fork truck which will help speed up productivity and reduce downtime.

This range of fully automatic drum lifting tongs can come supplied with either 500kg lifting capacity or heavy duty 1000kg lifting capacity and suitable for either 210 litre steel drums or 210 litre plastic drums.

With a mild steel construction, the fully automatic drum lifting tongs are painted in high gloss yellow for added visibility, and like all our forklift attachments, come supplied fully tested and certified for compliance with the latest Health & Safety Regulations.

500kg and 1000kg capacity options available

  • Designed for handling 210 litre Steel tight head or L ring plastic drums.
  • The operation of these drum tongs are fully automatic allowing the truck operator to complete the whole operation without leaving his seat.
