Pallet transfer cart easily moves pallets wherever needed

Verti-Lift introduces a heavy-duty transfer cart quickly and ergonomically moves pallets and other heavy components (up to 4000 capacity) within production environments.   This custom-designed solution includes a gravity roller conveyor, a pallet retaining bar to secure the load during transport, and a manual foot-actuated “locking/docking arm” for convenient hands-free operation.  The cart is fitted with heavy-duty swivel casters which allow movement in all directions, to easily maneuver it into proper position, and stand up to heavy loads.  A hitch and pin arrangement for towing is included so that multiple units can be used together. This cart technology is ideal for moving wood, plastic and aluminum pallets, as well as shipping containers, equipment skids, component frames & bases, production equipment and more.

This purpose-built cart is easy to use.  Workers roll the cart into position then set the locking/docking bar to secure the cart in position beside an existing conveyor line.  Once a pallet has been positioned onto the cart, the pallet retaining bar is lowered into position, thus securing the load for transport.  Disengaging the foot switch releases the locking/docking bar and allows the cart and its pallet to be transported elsewhere within the facility to be offloaded onto another conveyor system.

Video demonstrations of Verti-Lift equipment can be seen on YouTube (search Verti Lift).  They are made in the USA and available from Material Handling Distributors nationwide.
