Our Fully Automatic Drum Tongs allow drums to be picked up from the overhead position via a forklift truck or an overhead crane.


Our Fully Automatic Drum Tongs allow drums to be picked up from the overhead vertical position via a forklift truck (yoke required) or slung beneath an overhead crane hook. This makes the ideal attachment for when drums are inaccessible for lifting from theĀ side.

The fully automatic operation of the drum lifting tongs means the whole handling operation can beĀ performedĀ without the forklift operator having to leave the seat of the cab. This in turnĀ can help speed up productivity whilst reducing downtime.

Our range of fully automatic drum lifting tongs can come supplied with either 500kg lifting capacity or heavy duty 1000kg lifting capacity and suitable for either 210 litre steel drums or 210 litre plasticĀ drums

With a mild steel construction, the fully automatic drum lifting tongs are painted in high gloss yellow for added visibility, and like all our forklift attachments, come supplied fully tested and certified for compliance with the latest Health & Safety Regulations.
