Rovi Products Inc. (www.roviproducts.com) has introduced a device to help move chip barrels safely.

The Barrel Buddy is a simple tool that can be used with a hand truck with a center post or a hand truck with a horizontal strap.

It was designed to prevent the cuts and scratches that are typically associated with material handlers who have to move chip barrels.

The company said its Barrel Buddy also allows one person to move a barrel weighing several hundred pounds without the aid of a co-worker.
