Steel Utility Carts Are Made In A Variety Of Models

Shop our Online Catalog: Utility Carts

All steel utility carts share one common design element, which is that of a frame that rolls on four carts. Beyond this common denominator, designs vary greatly between models intended for various specialized tasks. There are carts that have built in hydraulic lift tables. These tables are used to elevate workloads to comfortable heights for workers who are standing or sitting. There are other carts that feature a top designed like a cradle which supports cylindrical materials. Still other models are built with baskets at the top of the frame. These carts are used to carry various types of light loads and supplies. Some models also feature built in ladders and platforms for inventory stock control. Flat bed models feature a heavy duty platform that is low to the ground and a handle that the operator uses to steer the load. The most powerful units feature a dolly-like frame, a built-in set of forks, and a removable platform. These units are intended to function as forklift replacements.

Obviously, this vast diversity of design models reveals just how many tasks can be accomplished with steel utility carts. Elevating platform units not only move materials around, but also serve a dual function as work tables. Stock picking units with built-in ladders and platforms are used for safer, more expedient inventory control. Hydra lift carts, with vertical frames and built-in forks, can do the work of a forklift in a small company that either cannot afford a forklift or that currently lacks licensed forklift operators.

These many specialized functions improve process flow in manufacturing and storage environments. The basic frame design of the cart eliminates the need for workers to manually carry materials. Elevating platforms bring new ergonomics into the most challenging of work environments. Lift carts with fork tines and removable platforms allow companies to quickly adapt the unit to maneuvering both palleted and non-palleted materials in and out of trucks. Stock control becomes immensely safer and faster with a steel utility cart whose ladder and platform design are far more efficient that basic ladders. While moving drums and pipe has always been both an ergonomic and safety challenge, it becomes easy, safe, and expedient with the deployment of a cradle cart on the work floor.

The advantages that they have added to process flow have made steel carts a safety mainstay in these environments. Companies that have educated themselves in the financial benefits of using ergonomic equipment wouldn’t dream of skipping out on the purchase of lift table carts that function as mobile, adjustable work tables. Facilities that manufacture, ship, or store pipe are quick to invest in carts that are especially designed to support curved surfaces with minimal risk of spillage. Clean rooms have found stainless steel utility carts an invaluable means of providing workers with specialized platforms that simultaneously follow the strict hygienic guidelines of sterile environments.

Warehouses that routinely load and unload trucks that carry both palleted and non-palleted loads have not only found hydra lift units with removable platforms to be a viable substitute for forklifts, but in many cases, a more stable one as well. Workers who have climbed around on ladders for years picking stock simply do not want to go back to them once they have used a stock cart that features a dual platform design with an integrated ladder.
