High-quality wheels

This model has 100mm fixed front wheels and 100mm rear braked castors. When you leave the Drum Dolly in a static position, the braked castors ensure the dolly doesn't roll away. The wheels used on our drum dollies include precision rubber-sealed (RS) bearings as standard; this ensures a low rolling resistance making the dollies easy to move around.

Quality fabrication

Quality fabrication

We understand the tough industrial environment manual handling equipment is used in. As such we endeavor to design and manufacture drum handling equipment that lasts a long time after many years of use. Welding quality is important to us and as such we employ only qualified and skilled welders to fabricate our equipment. The drum dolly shown has a CNC brake press folded tray which is then welded at the seams. Each weld is inspected by a second welder fabricator before leaving our fabrication shop.

Fixed handle

Positioned at an ergonomic height, the fixed handle allows you to easily and comfortably move drums around the factory floor. Should you wish to source a dolly without a handle, we can offer a handleless drum dolly as an alternative solution. For large bulk orders we can customise the design of the drum dolly to suit a particular application or industrial process.
