Pallet and container trolleys and carts to be pushed manually or tugged in a train. FlexQube offers solutions for any size of pallet or container but the most common are EUR-pallet carts and trolleys or the North American standard dimensions of 48 and 45 inch containers. These material handling push carts are equipped with ergonomic handle bars and heavy duty casters in different dimensions. The most common caster dimensions are 5 inch or 8 inch (125 mm or 200 mm) casters and they can come in either Polyamide or Polyurethane. The carts can be equipped with casters that have brake or floor lock brakes. The dollies can be customized for any container size like Gaylord containers, knock down containers or wooden pallets.

The part number is Q-007-1220 and this cart has been sold in thousands to different customers in different industries using EUR pallets or Volvo Pallets as one of their main container types for internal material handling and transports.
The cart is equipped with a heavy-duty tow bar that is connected to the handle bar using a wire and hence the carts can be connected and disconnected from each other without having the operator bend down for release. It is a very ergonomic design.

On the North American market the 48-inch container carts with steel deck and drop pin hitch or foot release tow bar are our top sellers. They come in a six caster setup. By integrating the caster into the platform, the loading deck can be lowered and a so called low rider or loboy can be achieved. This means better ergonomics for the operators and taller loads can be stored on the carts.
