Rotacaster Wheel Limited continues to grow the distribution of their materials handling equipment and multidirectional wheels by joining the Trade Smart Industrial group. The contract will see Rotacaster supply their ergonomic range of Rotatruck materials handling equipment and multi-directional wheels to over 50 members and more than 60 stores throughout Australia.
Trade Smart representatives first noticed the Rotatruck line of materials handling equipment at the Melbourne Materials Handling and safety Show in April, where the Rotatruck self supporting hand truck was demonstrated spinning in a 360 degree circle fully loaded. The hand truck is mounted with four fixed Rotacaster omni-directional wheels which enable the multidirectional manoeuvrability.
The self supporting hand truck from Rotacaster has received attention for its unique ability to lever a load over kerbs and obstructions from a forward approach as opposed to the traditional method of reversing and pulling the load up and over kerbs. Because the load is fully supported by the hand truck, the risk of strain injuries is greatly reduced for operators and provides a much more ergonomic method of transporting heavy loads.
The Rotatruck materials handling equipment range includes the Rotatruck self supporting hand truck, the Rotatruck stair climbing hand truck and the Rotatruck Dollie. All materials handling equipment products from Rotacaster are mounted with Rotacaster multidirectional wheels and are ergonomically designed to provide a safe materials handling solution while improving productivity.
