The Battery Powered HouseKeeping Cart transports clean linen supplies used for housekeeping in the hospitality industries. The cart is motorized for moving supplies used for daily duties in hospitality and hospital environments, eliminating the manual pushing of these heavy supplies and linens, especially where carpeting makes them very difficult to push.
Workplace injury and illness costs American businesses $171 billion annually. Workers’ compensation claims add another $60 billion to that annual price tag. More than a quarter of those claims are for back injuries from repetitive lifting, pulling, and pushing and straining, according to the national council on Compensation Insurance. OSHA reports that back injuries cost U.S. businesses $12 million in lost workdays and $1 billion in compensation costs each year. The time-lost cost of a single injury is estimated at $26, 000.
The Powered Housekeeping Cart can haul loads up to 700 lbs. The cart has a variable speed twist grips that allows the operator to travel at speeds of 0-3 mph forward or backward. With its heavy duty, 24-volt motor being powered by two 12 volt batteries, the powered housekeeping cart can perform without recharging for an entire shift. The housekeeping cart can be customized to any application or any environment.
