See ya, side loader. Hello, Hamilton bottom line booster.


If you’re in material handling, you know that side loader forklifts can be great for hauling unorthodox sized loads through narrow warehouse aisles. But you also know that they can be both pricey and persnickety. SoSo, our customers often come to us seeking bespoke hauling alternatives to boost productivity and efficiency. And we at Hamilton carts and trailers are all too happy to oblige.

Check it: This is a recent order we fulfilled for an aluminum extruding plant in Ohio. The customer wanted a multipurpose cart capable of transporting 16 x 20-foot production racks and long bundles of aluminum logs throughout their facility. They had been using a side forklift to do the job, but turned to Hamilton for a more cost-effective solution to scale their fairly restrictive aisles.

Enter this high-capacity, 6-foot-wide by 20-foot-long workhorse we designed especially for power-towing. A tongue-actuated toggle brake on the front axle ensures everything stays put during loading and unloading. Safe. Effective. Straightforward.

In other words, no more getting sidetracked.
