Applications For Heavy Duty Stock Carts

Shop our Online Catalog: Utility Carts

Stock Trucks Applications for heavy duty stock carts vary widely according to the industries in which they are used. Medical facilities will use them to transport heavier pieces of equipment from storage areas to special care stations. Automotive shops use them to transport heavy engine parts to shop areas. Distributors use them to move large food containers in and out of cold storage. Warehouses will use them for bulk inventory control where large quantities of smaller items have to be moved all at once. These sturdy carts are also a favorite among delivery truck drivers who can use them to transport more items in a single trip than they normally could with lighter capacity carts.

Obviously, heavy duty stock carts can be used for much more than simple inventory control. In many organizations, their primary use is to transport heavy loads from one part of the facility to another. This is particularly advantageous in multi-story buildings where a mobile transport unit that can easily fit into an elevator will allow a single person to transport 1000+ pounds safely, quickly, and ergonomically.


Heavy duty stock carts are normally designed with two or three tiers, although some of the very large models have as many as six. They normally feature a handle on one end that the operator uses to push the cart forward. Platform casters, two fixed, and two swiveled, allows the operator to easily maneuver the unit. Some of the more common features include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Units have anywhere from 2-5 open shelves
• All-welded aluminum design
• Unit capacity beginning at 1,000 lbs.
• Marine edges that contain loads and add strength
• Some units feature removable shelves
• Individual shelf capacity starts at 500+ on multi-tiered units
• Built from corrosion resistant, hi-tensile, rust proof, primary extruded Type 6463-T5 alloy aluminum.
• Heavy duty carts designed for correctional institutions feature heli-arc welding with no seams and no rivets
• Typical shelf .80” thick
• wall tubing frame, standard 1 1/2”x1 1/2”x.070”

All aluminum construction helps minimize the weight of the unit itself. This allows a heavy duty unit to be used for light-duty applications as well. It might be advantageous for an organization to consider purchasing toward the heavy-duty end of the spectrum for this reason. Lighter materials can be handled with ergonomic maneuverability, while heavy materials can be safely transported with a model that is specifically designed for large loads. Smaller models are compact enough to fit within standard elevators which makes delivery more expeditious in places where freight elevators are either not present or difficult to access in a timely manner.

Heavy duty stock carts can be accessorized with lugs, special casters, and caster locks. Lugs add volume to cart shelves without consuming space. Caster locks help stabilize extremely heavy loads so carts can be used for temporary storage as well as transport. Tamper-proof screws are available for jails, prisons, and mental facilities. Additional customization may be possible for many models; talk to a specialist about specific options when you contact Easy Rack.
