Application description: Ideal for moving large and heavy equipment or machinery in manufacturing facilities and warehouses. Manufacturers of construction, mining, and agricultural equipment are just a few of the industries that routinely handle heavy assemblies and equipment. Large forklifts, overhead cranes, and in-floor track systems are the most common method for moving heavy equipment. They do have their advantages because they can get the load moving but they also have disadvantages with cost, efficiency, and flexibility. A Load Mover is a very cost effective and safe alternative that can generate a substantial ROI in many applications.
A Load Mover Recommendation: The Load Mover Xtreme-1K with Electric 5th Wheel and Hook is for heavy industrial carts that weigh up to 50,000 lbs. The Xtreme-1K has a relatively small footprint size which makes it a great machine for maneuvering through a production facility. Forklifts, overhead cranes, and in-floor track systems all are limited on where they can go and being adaptable to a continuous improvement environment. They also have an investment and operating cost greater than a Load Mover.
The battery powered equipment mover has a variety of attachments and features that make it an ideal choice for moving a variety of loads.
