    Barrel lift and carry handling clamp

    I used to make several barrel handler clamps for steel drums. they are pretty simple just need enough contact area around the rim to keep them from slipping then lift from the middle and off you go
    Plastic drums can be carried the same way but you should have a lot more contact area.
