Rotacaster Solution - Beverage Rotatruck

Rotacaster Solution - Beverage Rotatruck

The Challenge:
Leading beer, wine and spirits retailer BWS needed to improve the handling of the heavy loads involved in moving cartons of it’s product. Using traditional 2-wheel hand trucks, the user had to negotiate their way through narrow isles while balancing the heavy load which put considerable ergonomic stress on the body. Likewise, the manual loading and unloading of the trolly required a lot of bending and flexing.

Type:  Self Supporting Rotatruck™
Capacity:  100Kg (220lbs)
User:  BWS
Country: Australia
Reseller: Rotacaster
Fabricator: RotacasterThe Rotacaster Solution:

By adopting the self-supporting Rotatruck, the company was able to focus it’s staff on safely guiding the load down the narrow isles, rather than having to primarily support them. This significantly improved the ergonomic handling qualities for the user, including reduced fatigue. Fewer pull-backs also considerably reduced strain on the operator. Loading and unloading was also improved by the 2 phase self-supporting position.

Importantly, the use of Rotacasters allows the easy change of direction without destabilizing the tall load, as unlike traditional swivel casters, Rotacasters are in a fixed mount.

The solution requires no power to the wheels and minimal maintenance, while delivering reliable productivity.
