Consider the following to make the most of your basket truck investment
What is its purpose? Vinyl/canvas or plastic? Does it need to be covered? Will it fit through doorways? Under a work table? Swivel or rigid casters? The following will help you make an informed decision:
- Liner Type
Vinyl – Mold-, mildew-, UV- and tear-resistant, flame-retardant; easy clean-up; available in many colors.
Canvas – Abrasion-resistant; available in white only.
Poly – Molded heavy-duty plastic.
- Liner Installation
Permanent – Factory installed. Consider shipping costs due to dimension and weight.
Removable – Requires field installation of liner
- Size – Where will It Be Used?
Doorways – Carts larger than 16-bushel (40" x 28" x 30") will not fit through a standard 30" doorway.
Counters and work tables – Verify the height if you plan to store the cart underneath work areas.
- Caster Patterns
Pattern “A” – Corner mount, 4 swivel (S) casters; maximum maneuverability; most common caster pattern.
Pattern “C” – Corner mount, 2 rigid (R)/2 swivel (S) casters; ideal for long straight runs.
Pattern “D” – Diamond mount, 2 rigid (R)/2 swivel (S) casters; traditional postal/tilt pattern.
1 or 2 units – Ship knocked down which ships UPS, keeping your freight costs down; some assembly required.
All carts, except knocked down, ship fully assembled via common carrier.
Spring Lifts – Keep work at a safe and convenient height; measure length x width to determine bushel size.
Corner Bumpers – Protect walls, doors, door frames and elevators.
Vinyl Covers – With elastic.
