Cable Drum Handling Equipment / 6-Tonne Drum Stand Skid

RG - 6-Tonne Drum Stand Skid


These robust hot dip galvanized cable drum stands are designed to be placed on the ground or on the back of a tray-back truck and are provided with container lock mounting points. All spindle hardware is zinc plated and gold passivated, the hydraulic disc brake is manufactured from stainless steel and the power pack enclosure is powdercoated. They are also provided with lifting lugs, one on each corner. In addition to this, there are lifting points provided on each end of the spindle assembly for lifting the drum and spindle out of the stand. The spindle is manufactured from special high tensile hollow section and can be lifted by one person.

6 Tonne skid-mount cable drum stand complete with a line brake (pay out) capacity of 200kg at 1000mm diameter. As an optional extra, these drum stands may be supplied with an integrated diesel/hydraulic power unit and drum drive with a line pull (recovery) capacity of 500kg at 1000mm diameter.


Maximum Drum Mass: 6000kg
Maximum Drum Diameter: 2800mm
Maximum Drum Width : 1500mm
Maximum line pulls: 500kg at 1000mm dia. 1000kg at 1000mm dia.
Spindle diameter: 95mm

Please note the spindle diameter quoted is a special lightweight spindle with 95mm outside diameter. If 90mm is required, this will be a solid spindle in order to carry the 6 tonne drum weight. A solid spindle will be much heavier than the hollow one we normally provide and it will be a 2 or 3 man operation to lift the spindle. For this reason, most authorities prefer lightweight spindles.

Parts Books & Operating Instructions:

The equipment is supplied with one copy of an operation manual which includes operating instructions, safety information, major assembly drawings, hydraulic and electrical schematics (if applicable), etc. Additional copies are available upon request at nominal cost.
