Our ergonomic Universal Drum Trolley is designed to safeguard an operator from manual handling accidents when transporting heavy items. The trolley’s load capacity is 350 kg, however, the manual force required to operate is less than 20 kg. As a result, it’s simple to handle and use, making it ideal for any warehouse environment.

As one of the most adaptable drum trolleys on the market, this device allows you to move loads safely and comfortably. The drum catch can be adjusted to suit steel, plastic, and fibreboard drums ranging from 50 to 205 litres. With its innovative design, the mechanism properly positions the wheels under the load, meaning little input is required of the operator.

This device leads the way in safe drum handling! Whether you’re lifting a 50 kg barrel or a 350 kg drum, it provides an economical and safe solution.

Additional Information

Use the Drum Trolley with any drum from 50-205 litres!

Drums come in various heights, depending on the style and volume. The Universal Drum Trolley can flexibly handle this wide variety and easily adjusts to the drum. By pressing together two spring-loaded parts, the DTC01 drum adjusts vertically. This ingenious design is simple to use and allows for greater control while transporting drums and barrels of various sizes.

Easily balances heavy loads

When manually moving heavy loads, workers can be prone to manual handling accidents or muscular strain. The DTC01 Drum Trolley reduces this risk by reducing the effort required to move and handle drums, thus reducing workplace injuries. The wheels slide underneath the drum when the oil drum trolley is moved into the deployed position. This maximises stability and control when carrying drums as the centre of gravity exactly over the wheels.

Sliding drum catch that suits various drums

This Trolley is capable of transporting a variety of drum sizes, including 200 litres (45 gallons) drums. The drum catch is made of stainless steel that has been laser cut. It can be readily adjusted to securely connect to drums of various types, sizes, and materials. This includes tight-head steel, open-top steel, plastic Mauser, plastic L-ring, tapered plastic, tapered lip steel and fibreboard/cardboard.

Adjustable rim catch to hook and connect to the drum

The gripping catch may be adjusted vertically and has a variety of hook locations, allowing it to connect to drums ranging from 50 to 205 litres. To fit your drum onto the trolley, just remove the pin from the catch, adjust the position of the top hook, and return the pin.

Chemical-resistant wheels

A high-quality elasticated rubber wheel is utilised to ensure that the trolley can operate well in all weather types. To guarantee premium wheel performance in severe situations, rubber-sealed (RS) bearings are also used. To operate effectively, our drum trolleys perform best on flat surfaces.

Stainless-steel and robust construction

Universal Drum Trolleys are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel. These units are built to last a long time, thanks to the high-quality materials used in their construction. This guarantees their premium and robust quality.
