Wesco KD Drum Truck 3rd Wheel Option
Adding the 3rd wheel option is easy. Simply remove the hairpin cotter pin, and the connector pin, take off the rear rest, and replace it with the 3rd wheel assembly using the same hardware. The optional 3rd wheel is ergonomically designed to reduce break over effort. The 6 inch by 2 inch swivel caster carries the weight of the drum and makes steering much easier.

In the Poly Drum configuration, substitute two wide feet and a belt, to eliminate the risk of drums being punctured by nose prongs and chime hooks.
