Most employers have the best of intentions when they make a sizable investment in a set of brand new manual push carts. Unfortunately, even the top of the line manual push carts can put valuable employees in danger of suffering injuries due to overexertion or stress.
The materials, supplies and waste that need to be moved in construction and industrial environments are often exceedingly heavy. Carts loaded with lumber, steel, sheet metal, shingles and other building supplies can easily weigh several hundred or even several thousand pounds. Even the strongest and most able bodied employees in a construction or industrial environment that attempts to push a fully loaded cart weighing more than a few hundred pounds could suffer a serious, debilitating injury.
The motorized retrofit cart kit from DJ Products can easily be adapted to fit just about any type of manual cart in order to transform it into a safer and more efficient powered cart. A cart fitted with the powered cart kit is capable of handling loads of up to four thousand pounds at speeds of up to three miles per hour.
The power generated by the motorized cart kit also allows users to travel over a wide variety of surfaces including concrete, asphalt, tile and carpet. This makes the retrofit kit a smart addition for making manual carts more versatile in virtually any industrial, hotel, hospital, distribution, warehousing or material handling environment.
Adding a powered cart kits to new or old manual carts is an affordable way for business owners to increase employee productivity at the same time as minimizing potential injuries. This versatile piece of equipment helps owners to completely transform their current material handling equipment to make it more powerful and versatile for a minimum investment.
