Valley Craft’s Universal Drum Forklift Attachments are the perfect solution to efficiently transport drums throughout your facility. Compatible with all style drums (steel, plastic, and fiber) and having a load capacity of 1,000 lbs., you can be certain these will handle all your applications for years to come.

The beak attachment works with all style and sized drums with a lipped rim, as long as the top of the drum (rim) is at least 24” above the floor. To operate unit, first put your forklift forks into the designated fork pockets. Next, screw down the conveniently located built-in T-bolts to secure your unit to the forklift. Gently maneuver beak against the outside of the drum and raise until the beak automatically engages with the rim. From here you can safely and securely transport your drum throughout your facility. To release, simply lower the drum to release pressure on the beak and the unit will automatically disengage. The beak attachment is completely hands free and does not require the operator to ever leave the cab of the forklift.

The strap attachment is similar but has the added capability of working with any cylinders (as well as drums) from 14-24” in diameter. By utilizing the dual ratchet strap system, operators can apply the exact tension required, reducing possible damage. Straps conform to drums giving maximum contact points and security for your drums.

Constructed of heavy gauge steel with a premium powder coat finish, you can be confident this unit is built to last. All products are shipped fully assembled, and are made in the U.S.A.
