Why Choose Electric Material Handling Carts Over Manual Carts?

A powered hand cart may cost more than a manual cart, but it typically delivers a better long-term return on investment. The increase in productivity alone can offset the initial upfront expense in a short time. They are also simple to operate — your workers will be able to adapt to using them without an extended learning curve, and they will surely appreciate how much easier their workday will become.

It's also possible that you will need fewer employees to complete a specific material handling task, which allows you to allocate your available labor resources more efficiently.

Most powered hand cart models allow you to adjust the speed and direction of the machine with a quick press of a button or flip of a switch, while their manual counterparts require physical effort. This makes the electric version much more nimble — they can easily adapt to changes in surface conditions or work environments. Features such as traction drive even allow some electric material handling cart models to navigate flawlessly in off-road environments.

What About the Safety and Damage Prevention Advantages of Battery-Powered Hand Carts?

Safety is a big concern in just about every material handling operation these days. Powered hand carts can help you create a safer work environment and possibly lower the number of workers' compensation claims. They require less pushing, pulling and lifting than when using manually operated carts, which means fewer back and repetitive motion injuries. You also don't have to worry about them rolling down an incline and perhaps injuring bystanders. Many models even include headlights for better visibility.

If product damage is an ongoing issue in your work environment, powered hand carts can help you minimize spills and other problems that occur when using manual carts. Electric carts offer better control of the machine, which can prevent workers from accidentally dumping loads while in transit. And with features such as roller-grip controls and auto-braking, operators can react quickly to avoid collisions that can cause significant damage to goods.

Use Electric Material Handling Carts for a Wide Range of Applications

Our lineup of battery-powered hand carts can provide a fast, ergonomic transport solution for numerous industries. Typical applications include material handling and moving in industrial and manufacturing operations, warehouses and distribution centers and storage facilities. Because they operate via battery power, you can even use them in outdoor environments where no electric power source is readily available.
