pruning, picking and many other tasks, these carts spend long
hours in use. If the operator is comfortable, their thoughts are
on the job. With this in mind we have designed our carts to reduce
operator fatigue. Foot pedals have a lower profile, which reduces
stress on the calf. Anti-fatigue rubber matting is standard, and
reduces strain significantly. A comfortable operator is a safe
and efficient worker.
changes have lowered the carts base platform by a full 5".
Careful distribution of the weight has lowered the centre of gravity,
without making the cart heavier. This is an extremely important
feature especially when the platform is raised (a maximum 3 metres
on the larger carts). A more stable platform means fewer work
disruptions, and fewer injures. A choice of safety railings can
be been added as an option.
plastic wheels are used to grip the rails more firmly. Plastic
wheels last longer, and are much quieter than steel wheels. Also
plastic wheels do not wear out the heating rails like metal wheels
do. The top speed has also been increased. This allows the operator
to move safely but efficiently to his destination. Control of
the speed at the low end is also more accurate. CCS uses the highest
quality batteries and the longer periods between charging means
less costly downtime. Also a built in battery charger is standard
on all of our hydraulic carts, and an option on all the rest.
types of platforms are available. The standard model has a maximum
capacity of 400 pounds and can be raised to a maximum height of
1.5m. The longer cart has a maximum capacity of 300 pounds and
can be raised to a maximum height of 3 m. All platforms are lightweight
aluminum to help lower the centre of balance. Whether it is the
longer or the shorter cart, hydraulic platforms are an option.
These models can raise the platform to 3 metres in about 12 seconds.
The long-term savings in labour of this convenience more than
pays for the additional cost.
a low profile cart is required at the start of the season, or
for specialized tasks, the entire scissor lift can be removed.
Both the main cover and the scissor lift have hinges to allow
them to swing out of the way, exposing the batteries, motors,
and electronics for ease of servicing.
