Small Drum Depalletiser

We designed an adaptor that allows our drum depalletisers to handle small kegs and containers with ease.


Small containers and drums are used daily within industry to store smaller amounts of material. These small MAUSER barrels and HDPE kegs are problematic to manoeuvre around the workplace. With weights ranging from 10kg to 75kg, they are too heavy to lift and move by hand. This small drum lifting attachment was designed to fit onto our existing range of drum lifters allowing operators to lift small drums and kegs on and off pallets using the handle holds provided.

Product design

The adaptor features a stainless steel boom arm and two chain hooks that slot into the handles of a small drum. Small barrels of up to 75kg can be handled with this attachment making it ideal for companies with both small and large drums in their process.

The adaptor connects to the stainless-steel ladder rack on the lifter body and can be moved up and down to suit a variety of different small drums and kegs. The attachment is suitable for both the Side Shift Drum Depalletiser (DTP04) and our Counterbalance Drum Depalletiser (DTP08). When handling 205-litre drums that don't have handles, we can offer our unique universal drum gripper which is a tried and tested solution used worldwide.

Drum Lifting Equipment

You can use our drum lifters for loading and unloading pallets and bunds as well as STS drum cradles, mixers and dollies. We have a range of drum lifting equipment for use in a variety of operations.
