It's was made move metal drums around and you could lay the drum horizontal hence the balled ends on handles. Garages and industries used these in the 1940's to move oil and grease near to work site. I don't know why the foot hold down was made on trucks. Possibility to help hold if the drum was up right and a pump was used in the drum if it was near empty.
