Whether its hazardous materials, liquids or dry ingredients, chances are if you spend some time in a manufacturing facility, you will encounter a 55 gallon drum filled with something. These drums are all too common and have been a staple in the manufacturing industry for decades. These drums range in materials from plastic to metal and even go all the way to stainless steel. Regardless of what the drum is made out of and what is being stored in the drums, they all have one thing in common – They are heavy when they are full and can be difficult to move. Luckily for you, there is a product used specifically to move these drum containers. A drum dolly has a very simple design which serves a very specific purpose – to move these drums from one place to another as easily and safely as possible. These dollies make for a safer work environment, and reduce your risk for injury. The 3″ casters provide for an easy roll under heavy loads and are designed to withstand the wear and tear these dollies are exposed to. The casters can easily be replaced on these dollies as well which makes for an economical solution to increase the life span of each drum dolly. Drums should be placed on the dolly while empty so it can then be moved once it is full.
