6LB RK Drum (7.5LB Max) 8×18


SKU: 0099141fb4dc Categories: ,


Buying Advice:

11 Pounds of Heavy Grade Stainless Steel.  This Drum will last forever.

A 6Lb drum only, can be generally overloaded by 20% should be used generally for home roasting, roasting for family and friends, or preferred for starting your new roasting business.  Requires you to supply all other parts.  Should be purchased by itself only if you intend to figure out all other parts yourself. (rotisserie, electrical, motors, etc.)

Who should buy:

The Do-It-Yourselfer, or inventor type who is handy and either has, or can find the other parts to make a complete roasting solution.  Or if you already have the parts already.  Note that a standard rotisserie motor generally will not turn this 6LB drum.  We recommend 20-60RPM for best results.  See our parts section, and kits that include motors below.  This is considered a good starting business roaster

Who shouldn’t buy:

Anyone wanting or needing an all-in-one turn key solution.  See the DIY and Everything kits below.


You will need a grill.  Please visit the grill Selection guide here to see the requirements.


You will need some method to cool your beans.  A common and inexpensive method is to simply place a screened container over a fan.  You may select the 16″ cooling tray above and simply install over a standard fan, or choose one of the RK Model T Cooler solutions above.
