About The Product
The Multi Purpose Drum Trolley started life as a project for a chemical company manager, who wanted a trolley that was easy to load (not heavy, cumbersome and downright dangerous as some of the trolleys are), and have the load sitting over four wheels when the drum was being moved. He also wanted to load and unload 200 Ltr steel drums onto pallets. As there was no such trolley, King Materials Handling looked into it and the MPDT was born.
Most drum trolleys have fixed axles, so the drum has to be rolled up and over the wheel when loading. King fitted a swing back axle, and added a double torsion spring. This enabled loading with very little effort, plus the spring absorbed the load/unload forces, and helped push the axle forward past the vertical, when it is used as a horizontal drum stand.
King added small internal wheels, so the drum could be rotated (when horizontal), to ensure the bung was in the correct position for decanting purposes, or if there was a leak from the bung.
The trolley is full zinc plating for maximum corrosion resistance, and the wheels have zinc plated hubs with roller bearings and solid rubber tyres – so no punctures.

HAZARD IDENTIFICATION, RISK ANALYSIS & CONTROLS
ELECTRICAL / HAZARDOUS.
No electrical hazard exists, as the product is purely mechanical in nature, however, when decanting products of flammable nature, an approved static grounding strap should be secured to the drum and earthed appropriately. Naturally, this operation should be performed in a well ventilated bunded area, away from any source of ignition.
When decanting noxious or hazardous chemicals, similarly prepared areas as above must be utilized, along with appropriate personal protection and clothing.
Safety equipment and fire suppression systems should be close at hand and in working order.
