Modern Materials Handling Magazine Looks at CooLift by Magline
Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2013 -- Magline continues to lead the industry in manufacturing hand trucks. The innovative designs of two-wheel hand trucks, convertible hand trucks, bulk delivery trucks, special application trucks, and ramps are durable and enhance workplace safety. Magline is a proud Association member of The National Beer Wholesalers Association, The International Foodservice Distributors Association, and Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association.
Modern Materials Handling featured Magline’s CooLift to improve safety and delivery. Combining a maneuverable, high-capacity hydraulic lifting truck with integrated plastic half pallets, the Magliner CooLift delivery system improves safety and delivery by reducing the number of driver product touches. Orders for direct store deliveries are built directly onto the pallet, and then loaded into trailers using traditional forklifts with a special pallet adapter. Upon delivery, drivers can transfer product to its final destination through a traditional door (unlike with full-size pallets) because of the pallet’s compact size. The truck’s hydraulic lifting system is powered by a 24-volt rechargeable battery. Manufactured of lightweight aluminum, it rolls on six wheels—two of which swivel—for lightweight, 360-degree maneuverability in store aisles. The pallets come in three sizes and hold loads ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 pounds.
