Whether working in a warehouse, distribution center, campus setting, or other facility environment, lifting and moving objects often comes into play. Tall, long, and narrow objects are difficult to move or load onto a truck. The Scoop Dolly from Saw Trax Mfg. in Kennesaw, GA makes it easier to load and unload large, top heavy objects. The dolly’s design allows users to operate it like a hand truck on a dolly. However, unlike standard hand trucks the object being transported can be moved in any direction making long objects easier to move. Once loaded and tilted back, the load on the Scoop Dolly remains stable without needing to be supported by the operator. The dolly supports the weight of the load, not the operator.
The Scoop Dolly has tilt legs that can adjusted to vary the angle of the load to safely keep the center of gravity over the dolly. The dolly has omni-directional casters so the load can be moved in any direction.
Scoop Dolly has a pivoting hand truck-like device that is easy to slide under objects while the dolly stays flat on the floor. Then the object is tilted back onto the dolly using the scoop. This type of pivoting handle keeps the casters flat on the floor so they are not angled causing the internal bearings to fail. This type of design also allows users to vary the angle of the load by varying the position of the support legs.
With the addition of optional Leverage Handles, wider objects can be carried on the scoop dolly like heavy boxed furniture, appliances, etc. And, with the addition of the Ramp Wheels, the dolly glides over the loading dock transitions onto or off freight trucks.
A Veteran Owned Small Business, Saw Trax Mfg., Inc. was founded in 1988 by a Naval Aviator, Michael Della Polla, who was not satisfied with the design of cutting guides used by circular saws at the time. Saw Trax started making panel saw kits in 1992. In 1996, Saw Trax introduced its first panel saw.
