Drum Dispensing Cradle


Product Code: DCR01

The STS Cradles offer a safe effortless way to turn 55 gallon drums (200 liter) and barrels from the vertical to the horizontal. The DCR01 Dispensing Cradle is ideal for decanting 55 gallon drums and barrels; braked castors and handle storage in the base prevents the cradle from tipping. There is an option to have rollers fitted, which allows the drum to be turned around when horizontal.


The drum or barrel is loaded onto the footplate using either the DTC01 Universal Drum Trolley, a depalletiser unit or forklift truck. The drum cradle requires an operator input of less than 55 pounds (25 kilos).   The unique geometry of these cradles is what makes them easy to use. They are not like any cradle you have used before.
