Sitecraft’s electric powered trolleys have been designed to reduce the risk of manual handling injuries. The powered platform trolley comes with variable speed control, emergency stop and a unique forward and reverse drive system. The cage trolley has similar features along with a highly durable cage around it. This trolley has a load carrying capacity of 500 kg. An electric trolley provides effortless movement of bulky and heavy loads. they are also automatically braked so a trolleys speed is controlled when moving up and down slopes and ramps.
Motorised trolleys remove virtually all operator effort when operating with loads. This results in an increased productivity and reduces workplace injuries. Manually pulling and pushing heavily loaded trolleys and carts can cause musculoskeletal (MSI) injuries in the workplace.
These (MSI) are damage and injury to muscles, joints, tendons, nerves and ligaments through prolonged exposure to repetitive motions and forceful exertions. Because of these injuries manual handling in the workplace is a significant contributor to overall work related injuries.
Manual handling includes many common tasks carried out including lifting, pushing, pulling, holding and carrying. The use of electric/battery powered manual handling equipment can help provide a safer and more productive work environment.
The Sitecraft range of electric powered handling equipment includes powered pallet trucks, electric tow tugs, motorised trolleys and electric warehouse trolleys. For more information please call our experienced sales team on 1300 363 152. We have offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane.
