Drum Trucks

Drum trucks can really help you haul those drums around. They are little miracle devices for employees that would otherwise have to haul, roll, or carry drums by hand. That is just not possible. Well, it is technically possible, but no workers should have to go through that. Drum trucks are relatively inexpensive compared to similar hauling devices so there should be no reason why you don’t get these for your employees to make their jobs a lot easier.

You don’t want them to encounter back or shoulder injuries from carrying drums on their own. That could really cost your company a whole lot. Drum trucks are used to move metal and plastic drums. They are also manual devices that differentiates them from the many electric-powered, automated, and machinery-driven devices out there on the marketplace today. Drum trucks are pretty standard devices that anyone can learn how to use.

Let’s take a look at some drum trucks so you can get a better understanding of them as unique products.

  • 15BTC model 4 Wheel Ergonomic Drum Truck – This drum truck was built uniquely for ease and comfort. It has an easy swivel caster design that will make it simple turn tight corners and get into small spaces, and it is also easier on your muscles and back, so you can save all your precious strength. There are also nose prongs that make it much easier to lift heavier drums up.
  • Wesco Drum Truck – Hand Truck Combo 156DH – This drum truck is a steel one, and it can be used like a drum truck or a hand truck. It can hold up to 55 gallon drums. Plus, it can handle over 800 lbs. of cargo. You can do some awesome things with this hand truck.
  • Open Drum Truck Spill-Less – This drum truck can transport all your drums in a vertical position so you can avoid any spilling. It can handle 55 gallon drums and up to 1,000 lbs. in capacity. It has heavy-duty 5” x 2” polyolefin casters too.


These products are just a small sampling of everything that is available in drum trucks. There are many more you can look into. Each drum truck will have different shapes, load carrying capacities, and dimensions. Choose the one that will suit your purposes best and don’t just buy a generic drum truck just because it says drum truck. You might not get the one that can do the job for you. That would end up being a minor waste of money for your company, but it would also take away some of your time for more important things. Begin investigating drum trucks thoroughly before you purchase one.

Some drum trucks are more heavy-duty than others. For example, some have double-column frames that really gives them added oomph. That makes them much sturdier than other drum trucks. Some drum trucks only use single-column frames, for instance. Some have kickstands, and this makes it easier to stand them up. Some offer rear foot bars that can help you break down heavy loads. They are usually about six feet in height.

These drum trucks have very definite and useful purposes. They are not toys. They are not really for home use. They have specific business and commercial use. It is easy to see why these drum trucks are at the top of the food chain as far as devices useful in transporting drums. Even though they’re manual, they offer the simplest solution. They are cheap. Anyone can learn to operate them too. Drum trucks don’t usually cost that much, even for the heavy-duty ones. Their prices can be about $299.99 or so for a high-quality one.

That is definitely not too much to spend for a serious-quality dump truck. These things are very practical and useful, and they will hold up a long time. You can even purchase a slew of them in different sizes if you are not sure about the kinds of drums you are going to be moving. However, most drums are between 30 and 55 gallons in size, and that is the size that most drum trucks are designed to carry.

If you cannot find a drum truck that meets your needs specifically, consider contacting a drum truck manufacturer and asking them if they know a specialty drum truck manufacturer that can offer you the kind of size drum trucks that you need. Most of the companies will be pretty helpful in helping you locate the right kind of trucks. Your business is important to them.

  • We purchased this Snap-Loc dolly to move around our heavy tables for when we have book sales, party reservations, etc. We were pleased with the quick shipment of the product and the dolly seems to be exactly what we were needing. Since we haven't had it very long I can't say for sure about the durability, but I will update when and if I have other opinions.

  • I have had this cart for two weeks and have used it carting 400lbs of tile amoung othe items. It is well made and very easy to use, locks in place with no fear of releasing from its position. No plastic parts here. Needless to say I am very happy with this Wesco converible hand truck.

  • Feels like very high quality, easy to operate, quality built – what more can I say? This is a great product and really increases productivity, prevents back injury and its easy rolling design protects even the most fragile items. Fantastic product! (Motorized Stair Climber With Winch Lift)

    Tom Bofferet

  • The features of the Escalera stair climbers are fantastic. Easy to use, good capacity, and the cell battery lasted for about 3-4 hours of continuous use. Got if fairly quickly and the service was excellent.

  • The design your own BP Liberator was a great service and allowed our company to put together the design and features we really needed in a hand truck. Easy to configure and the step by step process was easy to follow and made sure we got just what we needed and that everything would be compatible. Thanks for the great service – looking forward to doing business again in the future!

    Frank D. Miami, Florida

  • The customizable Liberator Double Disk Brake hand truck is great with the extra features – we ordered with the optional stair climber and are so glad we did. It’s a life saver on your back!

    I am very happy I found Hard Trucks To Go on the Internet I WILL tell all my friends & family, If they need a hand truck not to buy from any other company.
    Atlas Vending Service Inc.  Seymour, Connecticut

  • This is a very heavy duty sturdy hand truck the way I built it. It is rated for 500 lbs and will do that w/o a problem. It is slightly heavier than a traditional cart, but it can move 3 x's the weight. I got the 10 inch balloon tires because on previous carts we have had air filled that are a problem; always adding air if not checked frequently and don't hold as much weight w/o failing. I would buy another one of these when I need one.
    Joe   Krout , Oregon

  • I think this is a great product (R8 RocknRoller Cart) and looks as though it's going to be a great solution for me, especially with the addition of the 2-tier multimedia shelf. The product itself (R8 Multicart) seems very solid and I look forward to putting it to the test.

    Burlington, Vermont

  • We needed a new dolly that would stay under the piano and organs we deliver while moving thru doorways and up a few steps, this Jansen Piano dolly does the job perfectly. The rubber pads keep the dolly in place under the item and the placement of the four wheels lets the dolly angle up onto the step or over crack in the sidewalk. Great design! Yesterday we moved a 1000lb 7ft Baldwin Grand with ease using our new Jansen Piano Dolly. Also thanks for your fast service, the new dolly arrived in two just days!!

  • We have three of these round table carts for moving coaches tables for here at the King County Aquatics Center. These have been a great asset to our facility they make every ones job easier. Thank you

  • This is a well built garden cart that can definitely carry a heavy load without bending or tipping. It carries a 35 gallon water tank with ease. I also pull it behind a riding mower occasionally and it works perfect for that purpose as well. Communication and shipping were excellent. Very pleased with my purchase from Handtrucks2Go.

  • I used these to replace the inflatable wheels on my Wesco Spartan Sr. The inflatable tires had worn out after light use in just a few years. So far, these solid rubber wheels appear likely to last as long as the hand truck.

  • I bought a Magliner Platform Cart. There was one little glitch in what I ordered, and the salesperson called me back within an hour or two, and we straightened it out over the phone. The Magliner arrived about a week later, with no glitches, and I assembled it with no missing parts, etc.. It is one H--- of a handcart! I usually don't have time to do these reviews, but it this case, the service was so good that I think I owe it to them.

  • The Rough Terrain Dolly from Handtrucks2Go is by far a superior heavy duty dolly when compared to other dollies on the internet. By far you get what you pay for and this IS a heavy duty handtruck, that beats all other hand trucks on the Internet. I know because I use this dolly in my business all the time.
    Frank Fuller

  • Thw Wesco Maxi Mover is just what it says it is: compact, heavy duty, and easy to use. The handle is a little shorter than might be desired, but understandable given practical limitations. It is a welcome alternative to hauling around a full-sized dolly.
    Virgil G.
    Charleston, West Virginia

  • "The piano dollies are easy to install and support evenly the weight of the instrument making it easy to move around. The size of the wheels make it easy to roll and do not leave an impression in floor tiles like some piano wheels would do. I am very happy with the product and the timeliness of the customer service received."
    Glen Bohannon
    Manchester, New Hampshire

  • Ordered a small hand cart, it was delivered promptly and was easy to assemble; instructions called for 8 washers but only 6 were provided. When I called for more, the service was excellent and the washers came in a day or so. Hand truck seems solid - but pins holding handle tend to work their way loose - not a big problem, though.

  • Had a great shopping experience with handtrucks2go.com! The "Rock-n-Roller R2 No Flat Wheels" is a wonderful cart for musicians. Loads easily, breaks down & stores readily, drives like a dream. The ties work well with the cart, and the cart is sturdy without being heavy. Thanks so much!

  • "Received my Gruvgear cart within a couple of days of ordering and it's just what I expected. It was easy to assemble the wheels and will be just what I need to haul all my cases of Mardi Gras beads to the float. See you at the Orpheus Parade in New Orleans."
    John Bryant
    Port Neches, Texas

  • "Very pleased, should have ordered the Lectro Truck 5512 years ago. Saves time and less chances of employee getting hurt on the job. We are using the Hand truck to move boiler sections weighting 350 to 450 lbs. up and down steps."

  • "I am a caterer and I am constantly transporting dishes and cups which come in those wide crates. I ordered the folding nose option with stair climbers and it is working out great. Handtruck came quick enough (about 6 days), feels real solid. Would buy again and recommend it for other people in the food industry."

  • "We are always on the lookout to save money for our delivery business, especially in these tough economic times. One expense that we keep on coming across is the replacements of our fleet of Magliner hand trucks, and as hard as I looked I couldn't find any discount retailers.

In all my years that I have been shopping for these appliance hand trucks, this was by far my best experience ever!"
    Harry R.

  • "Just wanted to drop a quick thank you for the beautiful folding office cart that we received last week. In the short time that we've had it, it has already more than paid for itself. I would like to place an order for another 2 for my  billing and accounts receivables departments as well..."
    Mary Ann B.
    Houston, Texas

  • "Looked around for a while for the rock n roller carts, but had a hard time finding it with the new no flat tires. Could be that is what the other sites were selling too, but they did not make any clear mention of it. When I hit your site, I was real happy to see a nice big picture explaining that these were the ones with the updated flat-free wheels. The onpage accessories you offered was a plus, and made the shopping experience a real pleasure."
