More Manufacturers Equals More Selection

When you call a material handling equipment manufacturer, you have access to the equipment to their one catalog, but with Douglas Equipment you have access to the equipment available from over a dozen different manufacturers. We have manufacturers who specialize in only hand trucks; others who specialize in lift equipment, and some who specialize in drum equipment. By using Douglas Equipment, you will get a better selection and better price.

Here is another example of the type of model we offer for drum equipment:

  • Model 185A-HD Heavy-Duty Kontrol-Karrier: The Kontrol-Karrier is attached to a crane hoist and is designed to lift, move and control pouring for heavy drums. The unit can handle drums as heavy as 1,500 pounds and provides easy pouring with a fine tilt control that functions on a 60:1 ratio gear and sprocket drive. The MORcinch drum handling system includes all drum options: steel drums, fiber drums and plastic drums. The system can also handle many drums sized smaller than just the standard 55-gallon drum. Safety options included are spark resistant parts for those occasions when you have drums containing flammable materials. For easy pouring the MORStop tilt-brake is used to add an automatic hold of the drum at the proper tilt angle.
