Lifting & Lowering
The LES Corner Pallet Drum Truck is designed to load and unload drums of either steel or poly material up to a weight of 450kg from pallets or stillages.
More specifically from the corners of a pallet or stillage offering ultimate access and maneuverability around the pallet when both loading and unloading thanks to rear steerable wheels.
Wheels & Steering
Located at the front of the unit are two fixed wheels and located at the rear of the unit are two steerable wheels fitted with a parking brake. Two fixed wheels allow accurate and stable support when loading and unloading drums from the pallet, whilst two steerable wheels located at the rear offer ease of movement again when loading and unloading, for safety the rear wheels are fitted with a brake to lock the unit into place when docking to ensure no unnecessary unit movement and offer optimal safety and security throughout the drum handling process.
Gripping and Grabbing
On the LES Hydraulic Drum Palletiser Truck, there are a number of mechanisms to aid and assist with the raising and lowering of your drums, one of the most important is the top grip situated at the very front of the unit, this is the main point of contact when addressing the drum! With the jaws of the gripping system engaged once the pump is active, this makes for secure and safe holding of the drum in both the raising and lowering process. This grip also removes the need for the user to touch the drum as the jaw both grabs and releases the drum automatically when required.
Pressure Release Control Rod
Another important component found on this unit is the Pressure Release Control Rod situated at the rear of the truck, this spring-loaded rod automatically closes the valve when released from the operator's hand which prevents any unintentional movement of the drum and automatically engages the pump in the raising process, yet can accurately and smoothly lower the drum when required with a simple clockwise turn of the ergonomically designed handgrip found at the top of the rod. This allows the user to slowly lower the drum at their required pace and can be stopped immediately by releasing in order to revert the mechanism back into the raise position, by doing this it stops the lowering process for optimum safety and reassurance.
