Questions & Answers

How much weight will this support?

When building a dock, need to know how much weight the various sizes of dock system float drums will support in the water.
Asked by: DrK
If I recall the spec said 300 pounds, I would estimate that to be correct. I used it as a replacement float for one that was missing. Angled it under the dock, put all my weight (230) on the other side and road it (and me) down...ugly but got enough under the dock to stick it, and was able to move into the right position. Note, my dock was already being held up by 8 other floats, so was only trying to firm up one corner.

Can they be hooked together and if so how? Put three together for a 72x60 surface.

Can they be hooked together and if so how? Put three together for a 72x60 surface.
Asked by: Mike
They have bolt holes in each corner, I would guess a 2 63ish inch 2x4s (one on each end) 12 4 inch 5/8ths carriage bolts would probably work, not much of a deck, but would probably hold together ok. You could rope them or chain them through the holes, but would not get a stable platform.

20 in. x 72 in. x 8 in. Dock System Float Drum is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, very well made. Delivery was quick and free... Excellent product, very well made. Delivery was quick and free shipping! I did not use these in a conventional manner to build a dock or float, but rather as a device to float my standing aluminum dock sections into and out of place when installing and removing. Worked like a charm and saves me having to pay to someone else to install and remove our dock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product with exact features as advertised Product was well described on web site. Due to unique size of dock finger, dimensions were critical for proper attachment. Opted for this product due to attachment features. Web site allowed evaluation of dimensions for this application. Well constructed product which was delivered properly and in a timely manner. Wonderful assistance from Home Depot customer service on requested action.
