Manual Hydraulic Drum Lifter

A hydraulic drum lifter is a crucial piece of equipment for any company using steel drum cylinders around their site. It allows steel drums to be lifted to the required height without the need for dangerous manual handling or the use of bigger pieces of equipment. A manual hydraulic drum lifter is an ideal piece of equipment for use in locations where there is no mains power or where it would be awkward to fit forklifts or similar equipment. This manual hydraulic drum lifter is highly mobile on 2 x 200mm nylon wheels at the front and a 100mm swivel rubber castor at the rear for easy manoeuvrability.

Using the Hydraulic Drum Lifter

This manual hydraulic drum lifter is operated by foot, allowing an operative to raise the steel drum to its required height for straightforward transportation. When in use, the operative can smoothly lift the drum from the floor to the necessary height, safe in the knowledge that the drum is held firm by the top rim clamp. Overall, the manual hydraulic drum lifter has a 280kg capacity, allowing it to be used in intensive industrial environments where heavy steel drums are frequent sights. Thanks to the mobile nature of the hydraulic drum lifter, it can easily be moved from place to place, ensuring employees won’t be tempted to resort to manual handling when the hydraulic drum lifter can easily be moved into position for use.

Safety of the Manual Hydraulic Drum Lifter

Safety is at the heart of every industrial business, so the manual hydraulic drum lifter has been designed to fit into that ethos. It is CE tested and comes with a secure mechanism locking the drum to the lifter as it is raised from the ground. This prevents accidents from drums falling or slipping. Equally, thanks to the foot operated hydraulics of this unit, the power to raise the drum to its desired height is completely within the control of the operative. Finally, the swivel rubber castor on the rear allows for simple manoeuvrability, so operatives will be able to line the drum up without difficulty.
