REDUCE COSTLY BACK INJURIES
Today’s heavy duty brake drums weigh approximately 120 lbs and are often carried considerable distances from storage areas to the shop floor. Mechanics are at risk of severe back or hand injury from heavy lifting. Shop injuries associated with heavy lifting can result in thousands of dollars in medical costs, lost time and worker’s compensation claims. Drum caddies were created to reduce these costly injuries and make brake drum removal and installation easier, quicker, and more convenient.
Extreme Drum Caddies can be used to easily pick up drums off flat surfaces. By pulling on the extendable handle, the drum is easily rocked back onto pneumatic tires and then transported. Ten inch pneumatic tires are convenient for transporting through gravel yards or over rough surfaces. The drum caddy is also light weight and can be stored in small areas when not in use.
Removing outboard drums is quick and easy with Extreme Drum Caddy. The caddy can be seated directly onto a brake drum while still on the axles for direct removal of the drum off the wheel hub. This can be done without lifting or handling the drum by hand. A swivel ring used to grip the drum rim keeps the drum positioned perpendicular to the floor, ideal for removal and installation of drums.
Installing brake drums is just as simple with the Extreme Drum Caddy. The swivel ring is naturally balanced to maintain the drum flush with the wheel hub. Aligning the drum over the wheel end is simple and convenient. No more lifting in the injury prone positions when trying to seat the drum onto the wheel hub. The Caddy can install or remove 15 and 16½ brake drums with minimal effort.
