Lifting a cable drum
Forks have to be longer than drum’s width.
Lift forks high up while you’re moving.
Do not release the drum until the forkelift has completely stopped.
Never use the forkelift to push drums.
Pay attention to other drums while you are lifting.
Use a sling spreader when it is possible.
Use as long slings as possible to avoid damaging the drum
Unloading a drum
Never drop the drum from truck!
Always try to lift the drum with a fork lift or a sling.
You can also offload your cargo by using higher grounds or, for example, loading bridge.
