55 Gallon Drum Lifter for Easy Moving

55 Gallon Drum Barrel LifterDrum lifters are tools to help lift drums in or out of their secondary containment units, placing them to or from spill pallets or decks.

With a hinged design, the drum lifter uses tension to create a secure grip. The steel drum lifter is constructed to perfectly clamp a 55 gallon drum, moving it about the facility with help from a crane or forklift. Each 55 gallon drum lifter can hold up to 1,000 lbs and weighs only 20 lbs itself.
