The Kegavator facilitates unloading kegs from delivery trucks more safely than the traditional brute force method, says co-creator 1 Stop Material Handling, North Easton, Mass. Using patent-pending Levelizer technology, the Kegavator gradually lowers the keg from the delivery truck, making the entire process seamless, quick and easy for the driver and preventing dropped and damaged kegs, it says. The Kegavator fits into most beverage trucks and eliminates the need for keg shuffle by allowing the operator to select from any of the eight easily visible keg options, as opposed to the typical four, without having to remove others to select the keg of choice. This innovation prevents operators from having to face potential injury from shuffling around 160-pound kegs to find the correct SKU, it adds.
Without using electricity, hydraulics or air, the Kegavator ergonomically assists delivery drivers to select and remove kegs from the truck. Because the system uses constant force springs to move kegs, the Kegavator can be a completely green solution for delivery trucks, the company says.
