- TL;DR Summary
- I'm trying to tilt a 450 pound plastic drum to a 20 degree angle using a pneumatic cylinder. Need to determine what size and how many to use.

I have been tasked with tilting a plastic 55 gallon drum that contains lube to an angle of about 20 degrees.

I would like to use pneumatic cylinders as air is readily available here.

The plastic barrel has a 23.5 inch diameter and is 35 inches tall.

The barrel and contents weighs 450 pounds.

What force is required to tilt the drum?

Thanks,
