Uses for Handicarts
Also known as hand dollies or upright utility dollies, handicarts are a type of L-shaped material handling equipment with two wheels, a handle, and a baseplate that sits on the floor. Boxes or other large objects sit on the baseplate, and the person operating the cart tilts it back at an angle before moving the load to its destination.
Some of the most common uses for handicarts include:
- Moving appliances and furniture
- Transporting stacks of boxes
- Moving goods up and down stairs
- Loading and unloading cargo from trucks and ships
- Relocating boxes and bins around a warehouse
Benefits of Dollies
Having the right tools for the job makes life easier. Here are some top reasons to provide dollies for your employees:
- Maneuverability: The two-wheel design of a handicart makes it easy to navigate narrow hallways and around tight corners.
- Increased worker performance: Manual labor is strenuous enough—why not ease the load on your employees with handicarts? A lightweight yet heavy-duty cart can carry the brunt of the weight, so your workforce is happier and more productive.
- Better on-the-job safety: Injuries are bound to happen if your employees push themselves too hard. Dollies reduce the risk of injury, which in turn protects your business from workers' compensation claims.
- Affordability and durability: Handicarts are more affordable than motorized equipment, yet they provide many of the same benefits. Plus, RWM’s high-quality aluminum handicarts with durable construction are designed to last for many years.
