  • handle all types of HDPE drum;
  • capacity of up to 350kg;
  • interchangeable with standard drum gripping tool;
  • easy to install and use.

Band attachent

The band attachment is curved and has been designed to fit the contour of 205L plastic drums. The unique rubber-lined band remains in contact with the drum at all times whilst a ratchet and polyester strap secures the drum in place before manoeuvring around the workplace.

Steel, plastic and fibreboard drums from 120 litres, right up to 220 litres can be handled with this band. Alternatively, we can supply our universal drum catch that grips onto the top edge of the drum.
