Valley Craft’s Steel Drum Forklift Attachments are the perfect solution to efficiently transport steel drums throughout your facility. Offered in an economy, industrial or deluxe style, you are certain to find the unit that fits your needs and use.

The deluxe attachment is a best seller and has an adjustable guide that makes it compatible with drums and cylinders of all sizes, ranging from 18-28” in diameter. The rubber-lined jaws provide added security and protection for your drum, and has a 1,500 lb. load capacity. Utilizing a 3” spring-and-cam actuated jaw, this forklift attachment was designed with simplicity and productivity in mind.

The industrial unit is similar but becomes more economical through a couple features. Drum capability is limited to 30 or 55 gallon drums, and the jaws are steel (not rubber-lined), making the unit still extremely versatile but not as user friendly as the deluxe.

The economy is designed utilizing a simplified knuckle gripping natural pressure system, works with 55 gallon drums, and has an 800 lb. capacity. This unit is ideal for users with intermittent drum handling but need something to do the job when the time comes.

To operate units, 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. Raise jaws around drum to automatically secure the jaws under the top lip of the drum. From here you can safely and securely transport your drum throughout your facility. To release, simply lower the drum to release pressure on the jaws and the unit will automatically disengage.

Valley Craft’s Steel Drum Forklift Attachments improve the safety and productivity of any facility that is lifting and transporting steel 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 made in the U.S.A.
