Magliner Bottled Water Hand Truck Patented Multi-tray Configurations
Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2013 -- DS Waters needed a new kind of bottled water truck, so they turned to Magline. The challenge was their route sales representatives were picking up one or two bottles by hand to carry to their customers.
"Most of the hand trucks in use by our company are designed for a lot more bottles," says Michael Belcher, Director of Safety for DS Waters. "They aren't conducive to moving one to four bottles, so the sales representatives were carrying the bottles by hand. But we knew that the best way to minimize physical stress and ergonomic risk factors usually involves mechanical aid, like a hand truck."
Magline's new Trayless Bottled Water Truck is a lighter weight truck, made of aluminum instead of steel. It weighs in at only 20 pounds, about half the weight of a steel truck. The unique frame geometry cradles the bottles for safe handling, and the bottles are kept in place without clamps or lids, held in by the weight and friction of the bottles themselves.
