Hydraulic Spring Auto Tilt Stillages

Floor Standing Unit - Model KLG

The Ultimate in Automatic Tilting Stillages

Hydraulic Spring Auto Tilt Stillage






Unlike other stillages on the market today, there is no need to alter or change the springs when switching between cask sizes. The front loading hook has two setting positions - in the back position the stillage is suitable for 9, 10 and 11 gallon casks whilst in the front position the stillage is set for 18 and 22 gallon casks. The hook position can easily be altered in seconds without the need for any tools.


Hydraulic Spring Auto Tilt Stillage




Unlike most stillages where barrels are in direct contact with the metal stillage, all Kayel stillages incorporate a set of four roller wheels on which the barrels rest. These wheels enable the barrel to be rotated with ease to centre the keystone after loading and because there is no metal to metal contact, there is no fear of damaging the stillage which can lead to corrosion.



Hydraulic Spring Auto Tilt Stillage





Fitted with a pre-set Hydraulic Spring which provides an ultra smooth tilting action

The hydraulic spring is filled with both an inert gas and a thick hydraulic fluid. The gas serves to lift the cask whilst the hydraulic oil slows the movement to provide an unrivalled smooth tilting action.



Cask Loading Made Simple........

Hydraulic Spring Auto Tilt Stillage Loading

The KLG stillage incorporates an 'Easy-Load' facility which eliminates the need to lift a cask when loading it on to the stillage. This KLG is probably the easiest stillage to load available on the market. Even an 18 gallon cask can be loaded with minimal effort due the ergonomic design of the stillage which allows the barrel to pivot about its middle when loading on to the stillage.


  • By releasing a latch the cradle pivots forward to approximately 45 degrees ready for loading
  • Once supported on the loading cradle the cask can be tipped back onto the stillage with the minimal of effort
  • The weight of the full cask will compress the hydraulic spring allowing the cask to condition in a horizontal plane. Once loaded the cask can be rotated on four roller wheels to centre the keystone
