The BASCO Advisor Says...

Equipment you need to move, lift, or dump drums and pailsBASCO - MORSE® Hydra-Lift Karrier -™ Manual Tilt - Electric Lift

BASCO carries the right pieces of equipment for you to handle your drums and pails safely and efficiently. To choose the right container-handling equipment, know the answers to these questions:

  1. What are you moving? (drum, pail, carton, IBC, or ?) And you need to know what it’s made of - steel, plastic, or fiber.

  2. What size and shape is it and how much does it weigh? For example, some drum trucks can handle 1,000 pounds, while some pail or keg trucks handle only 800 pounds, or in some cases, only 500 pounds. See the specifications for each of the product choices you are considering to make sure the product you are choosing will handle your weight requirements.

  3. Where are you taking it and why? Does the container need to be moved from a vertical position to a horizontal position so you can drain the contents? Or, are you moving the container onto a rack?
