Two new lines join company’s e-Power Cart & Trailer offerings: 1) a four-model series of industrial pushers designed to push or pull in-plant trailers with load capacities between 3,000 and 100,000 lbs.; and, 2) three e-Power Vehicles with easy wagon-style steering to push or pull payloads up to 10,000 lbs.

The industrial pushers are designed to be more maneuverable and versatile with a smaller footprint than a forklift. The e-Power Pushers are presented as economical alternatives to AGVs and most other custom-engineered powered equipment, and equal to moving a multitude of materials in varying sizes and shapes in and out of hard-to-reach areas. To facilitate quick connects and disconnects, product engineers have designed linkages between the powered and non-powered elements to work seamlessly together.

Inplant trailers that link to the e-Power Pushers and the decks of the e-Power vehicles can be designed with custom sizes and superstructures to address a wide range of material handling challenges. Optional side-steer or remote steering features are also available. — Hamilton Caster & Mfg. Co., Ohio, 888/699-7164; www.HamiltonCaster.com, www.CartsAndTrailers.com
