Two-wheeled carts, main types, design features
A two-wheeled trolley is a kind of trade and warehouse equipment that is used to transport goods weighing up to 100-200 kg over short distances. Structurally, this technique consists of a metal frame, to which two wheels are attached, and stands for placing the load. The upper part of the frame acts as a handle. The operator who carries out the transportation is taken for it.
The platform in the lower part is located at an angle of 90 degrees to the plane of the frame (the structure is an inverted letter G). It can be fixed or folding. The second option is more compact. It allows you to organize convenient storage of these products. Two-wheeled carts are often used in warehouses, retail outlets, markets, manufacturing and industrial plants.
Attention: with the help of trolleys, you can transport both whole cargo and piece (boxes, bags with bulk materials). The platform can be single or lattice. It should be chosen for the type of goods transported.
Varieties of carts
There are four types of two-wheeled carts:
Classic. They have a standard L-shape. Suitable for transporting goods weighing up to 200 kg.
Lightweight models. Usually equipped with a folding platform. They are lightweight and made of hollow tubes. Suitable for transporting goods weighing 70–100 kg.
Reinforced. They have a strong frame and thicker wheels. Withstand loads up to 250 kg.
Specialized. Several models fall into this category - for climbing stairs, for working with special loads (for example, wet, hot, etc.).
The design of the two-wheeled trolley is designed to facilitate the work process. It can be placed with the load on the footrest or tilted for rolling. For the manufacture of the frame, a profile or round pipe (steel with a thickness of 1.2 mm) is usually used. The wheels are covered with polyurethane foam to soften the movement.
It is recommended to move on a hard, even surface. For ease of transportation, the handles are covered with a corrugated rubberized tube. Wheels can be of different sizes, if necessary, they can be easily replaced with new ones by choosing the link: https: //www.fregat.com.ua/pnevmaticheskie-i-prokolobezopasnie-kolesa/
