Dollies have always been a handy tool for moving things, however, when it comes to an awkward or heavy load, the need to traverse an incline, or manoeuvring in a confined space, that simple task can often turn into a balancing act, requiring a little more exertion than initially thought.
This can often lead to overturned loads, damaged walls, or worse: a strain injury.The use of Rotacaster's fixed multi-directional wheels create a static relationship between the centre of the load, its orientation, and the wheelbase. This reduces both the effort and risks associated with the movement of loads through the following unique advantages:
Less effort is required to balance a load during turning and rotation due to the static load and wheel base relationship, reducing the risk of overturning a load and strain injuries.
Tracking and Directional Control
Due to the fixed orientation of the wheels, changing the direction of the load and platform means changing the direction of the wheels. This ensures the wheels track predominantly in the direction the load is steered, reducing the effort and twisting action associated with strain injuries. Conversely, swivel casters only change direction when movement is arrested and recreated in the new direction, often requiring additional optional force increasing the risk of strain injuries. This tracking capability also reduces the tendency for 'crabbing' and the resulting inclination to pull rather than push a load.
The above characteristics combine to provide greater control and method of safer traversing of inclines.
Lightweight and Durable
The welded aluminium frame with fixed recessed/housed multi-directional wheels means no swivel mechanisms or bolts (other than axles) to damage or maintain ensuring consistent trouble free performance for the life of the product.
