Forklift Drum Attachment

  • Drums can either be loaded on manually, or automatically gripped by the drum handler
  • All manoeuvring of the drums is performed from the forklift cab by a single operator
  • Lift, rotate, tilt, and dispense from drums, all without any manual handling
  • Available with either one-drum or two-drum capacity


Drums can pose unique challenges for standard material handling equipment like forklifts.   However, with Carney’s Forklift drum attachment, you can have a safe, efficient, and convenient drum handling solution at your disposal.


Forklift Drum Lifter

Carney offers a wide range of forklift drum attachments, such as drum brackets, clamps, diameter adaptors, rackers, and handlers. Each of these tools can help you improve productivity and workplace safety by reducing the manual handling of heavy drums. The attachments also prevent damage to the drums or spilling of material thanks to the strong and steady grip that we guarantee with all of our drum handling products.  Furthermore, these attachments can facilitate a much wider range of applications than just the transportation of drums. For example, the operator can also use them to tilt or rotate drums by up to 360˚. Tilting can be controlled either by a pull chain or by remote control, depending on your needs.

Carney is also proud to offer custom options to ensure that each solution we provide meets your needs perfectly. That’s why we also offer options like bracket assemblies, rim clamps, and diameter adjusters. These help make sure that your forklift attachment meets all your facility’s drum handling needs, regardless of size or material.
