Forklift Battery Transfer Carts help users in safely removing and replacing forklift batteries that are found in fleets and have been configured to assist in side-extraction. These carts have a steel frame that is heavy duty and has a coating of durable powder which prevents any damage that can be caused by drops of the electrolyte. The battery compartments are layered with ply rollers that are spark proof which has a high resistance for corrosive build ups and help in reducing friction when the battery is changed. Large phenolic casters are manufactured in a way so that they have a low resistance to rolling with no higher risk of ergonomic dangers.
Battery transfer cart gets designed so that it can be used with pallet trucks for the applications like loading, unloading and transferring fork truck batteries. The cart typically has a roller deck to make the movement of battery easier. Most carts will also have safety tans that are front locking to secure the battery when it is in the cart. Battery transfer carts are usually constructed from welded steel and given a powder coat with a yellow finish. Most of the carts in the market will also include casters for increased portability.
Forklift battery transfer platforms can also act as battery carts and allow a single person to move, load and unload forklift batteries. It turns out to be a huge help in easy and quick maintenance of the battery. Most of these forklift battery transfer platforms also have adjustable heights so that it is easy for you to align it with the compartment holding the battery on the forklift. These forklift battery transfer platforms also typically have a hand crank winch, rollers, and a pull strap that has safety a latch hook to facilitate the safe horizontal transfer of the battery. They also have safety tabs that lock to secure the battery to the deck. These are typically made out of welded steel, and they are then given a powder coat finishing so that they can provide a long lasting durable product.
A few companies excel at manufacturing battery transfer carts that can efficiently, safely and smoothly help in transportation of all kinds of batteries, big and small. Most of these carts are ergonomically designed and save a lot of space. Having battery transfer carts comes out to be handy, and you do not have to make use of oversized cranes and forklifts to handle and move your batteries. They also improve safety.
Some of the advantages of using a battery transfer cart are:
• Minimize the potential damage to battery during transportation
• Improve the safety of the plant by use of controlled movement with no overhead loads
• Improve the visibility of the load in the surrounding area during transportation
• Helps in reducing potential damage to the material during transportation
• Simplifies control of the load during the movement using easy to operate user interface systems.
• Increases maneuverability when compared to options of towing.
Some of the options that you may see in the market on some models are:
• Availability of both flat decks or customized fixtures for particular loads
• Custom configurations for the deck
• Included built-in scales
• Support for rotate, tilt and lift movements
• Both trackless and tracked, non guided steering
• Alternative drive with steering systems that include gear reducing axle drives
• Individually controlled drive wheels
• Both variable and fixed speeds with reverse/forward functionality
• Drives accompanied by deceleration/acceleration abilities
• Scores of control systems for the operator including pendant control on coil card radio-based remote operation, fixed user interface.
• Battery technologies can be any of dry(lithium iron phosphate, GEL, AGM), or wet
• Availability if safety features like flashing lights, horns, bumpers, e-stops and systems facilitating collision avoidance.
Manual battery transfer carts are made use of with stands of the type that are equipped with rollers. This eliminates the overhead operations involving lifting by assisting the user in rolling forklift batteries from one place to another. No extra handling is required.
Hook chain is the standard way of extracting for easy battery removal. Vector floor locks eliminate the need or attachment chains during battery extraction and come with easy to lift handles. The parking brake keeps the unit in place when not in use.
