In this section of our website, you will find material handling equipment designed to make the moving of materials easier, safer, and faster. These devices are simple in design. The majority of them take the form of transports that roll on casters over warehouse floors and/or outdoor equipment yards. Some are designed to handle very small items such as tools and basic supplies. Others are designed to haul very heavy pieces of equipment, palletized products, and oddly shaped items to work areas, storage racks, and shipping docks.
Many of these devices are some sort of warehouse trailer that is pushed or pulled by a handle of some kind. A flat bed trolley that supports the load as it is being moved, and casters allow the operator to steer the unit around corners, down narrow aisles, through stacks of supplies scattered throughout the yard, and in an out of storage areas and shipping docks. These trailer designs are known by various industry names, including dolly, hand truck, wagon truck, and cart. All are based, however, on essentially the same concept of a mobile platform that an operator pushes or pulls to haul a load from one place to another.
When purchasing material handling equipment, always consider the above applications as the starting point for finding what you really need. Then, think about the materials you will be moving with these applications. Will you be working with raw materials, or finished products? Will you be moving packed or prepackaged products? Will you be moving the materials to storage areas or loading docks, or both? Do you have special storage facilities such as cold storage for foods, pharmaceuticals, and sensitive chemical agents?
Getting a clear picture on what you will be doing with a device makes it easier to narrow down your choices to only devices that are engineered to perform that application. At this point, you can start looking more closely at the designs of our various custom made trailers, dollies, skids, jacks, carts, and hand trucks to see which platforms offer the safest, most efficient, and hopefully ergonomic means of transporting materials within your facility.
You will find each product line offers specific advantages in capacitance and in maneuverability. You will also find that several material handling equipment lines are designed with safety features that not only protect the operator, but also protect the items they are transporting by restricting them to an enclosure during transport.
You can also find customizable products throughout our online inventory. Trailers, trolleys, dollies, carts, and hand trucks can be customized in various ways, depending on the specific model you are interested in. Additionally, there are several product lines of customizable products engineered only for specialized applications, such as elevating, packaging, assembly, and repair.
