Rotacaster Solutions - Bread Crate Rotatruck

Rotacaster Solutions - Bread Crate Rotatruck

The Challenge:
A large commercial baker was looking for an ergonomically safe way to move stacks of 12 and 15 bread crates. Traditional hand trucks required the operator to support the load, making it difficult to see past the load when moving forward.

Type:  Bread Crate Rotatruck™
Capacity:  100Kg (220lbs)
User:  Not disclosed
Country: Australia, New Zealand
Reseller: Rotacaster


Fabricator: Rotacaster

The Rotacaster Solution:
By adopting the self-supporting Rotatruck, the company was able to focus it’s staff on safely guiding the crate stacks while transferring them, rather than having to primarily support them. This significantly improved the ergonomic handling qualities for the user, including reduced fatigue.

To secure the crates to the truck a special latch was fitted. When used correctly it can self secure, and be easily disengaged. The time to precisely place a tall stack of crates is also reduced thanks to the multidirectional Rotacasters fitted to the front of the Rotatruck.

Importantly, the use of Rotacasters allows the easy change of direction without destabilising 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.

Another winning Rotacaster solution.
