In partnership with Steel King, Wisconsin Lift Truck developed a new hand cart that enables the transport of products to retail stores, while also doubling as a display to minimize heavy lifting and ensure the easy, safe transportation of bottles, cans and cases to the retail floor, the company says. Construction involved directly bolting a steel 48-inch-square five-shelve wire rack unit to a pallet. The open design concept also enables the delivery person to stack beverages from all sides. After completed, a small power lift pallet jack lifts the unit off the ground and delivers the stocked shelves directly to the retail floor. The durable, one-touch loading system eliminates additional handling, reduces product damage and labor, and minimal repairs are required due to the high durability of the pallet jack and the unit itself, it says.
