The tipping cradle described in this article provides a useful method of handling and emptying 44-gallon drums used as containers for petrol, oil, kerosene, water or other liquids. It was designed during the 1953-54 Argentine ant campaign when large numbers of drums were used to supply water to the spraying teams and it was necessary to evolve a method of filling the spraying outfits from the drums without loss of time and without waste of labour and materials.
