The Vestil DRUM-TRI-H multipurpose drum dolly has a steel frame, a zinc finish, a nylon pull strap, and four swivel caster wheels, and can be used to transport a 30- or 55-gallon drum, a 5-gallon pail, or a propane tank. The dolly is made of steel, which is stronger than aluminum and more resistant to fractures than cast iron. The zinc finish is resistant to corrosion. The pull strap helps the user move the dolly; it measures 4 ft. long and is made of nylon, which is resistant to abrasions and tearing. A hook allows the strap to be attached to the top of the drum for storage and is rubber-coated to help prevent scratches. The caster wheels swivel for maneuverability, measure 1-1/4 inches wide and 3 inches in diameter, and are made of solid rubber, which can’t go flat and is resistant to wear. This dolly has a load capacity of 900 lb. and weighs 30 lb. It is intended for use in professional and industrial environments.
Dollies are used to transport any of a variety of large, heavy objects, such as cabinets, crates, drum containers, furniture, heavy machinery, large appliances, rolls of carpet, or totes. Dollies are typically comprised of a low platform or deck mounted to caster wheels that may swivel for maneuverability and may include brakes to keep the dolly from rolling. Some dollies have adjustable frames to transport loads of different sizes. Others come with a pull handle to help the user move the dolly. Dollies can be used by professional movers or in warehouses or other industrial environments.
