Pallet Dollies: Fast, Easy Access to Pallet Loads


Posted by Blog Moderator.

Pallets are great for transporting and storing a wide variety of materials, but they can be awkward to access and move without a forklift or jack. That’s where pallet dollies come in. Pallet dollies make it easy to access and move your pallets, especially in tight spaces, which is typical in most warehouse and storeroom environments. Pallet dollies come with 6, 8, or 10 non-marking wheels and are sized from 36” to 48” in length and width. They have heavy-duty, rounded-corner aluminum frames and fit directly underneath standard pallets and large boxes, making it easy to roll them in and out of tight spaces. Pallet dollies come in turning and non-turning configurations, depending on whether you just need to roll your pallets along straight paths or around corners. You’ll find them all on our website, or call California Caster today for fast, friendly service.

Convertible Hand Trucks: Extra Stability for Heavier Loads


Posted by Blog Moderator.

Convertible hand trucks are similar to regular hand trucks, but with an extra set of wheels that fold out behind the main frame quickly and easily to create a four-wheel hand truck. Convertible hand trucks allow a single worker to move heavier loads safely, typically between 500 and 1500 pounds. They’re great for moving a variety of heavy items with fewer trips and reducing repetitive lifting, thereby lowering the risk of physical injury. Choose a straight-back or curved-back frame depending on the types of loads you need it for: straight-back frames are good for boxes, while curved-back frames are a better choice for cylinders, barrels, kegs, and other rounded shapes. Check out California Caster’s complete line of convertible hand trucks online, or give us a call anytime for fast, friendly service.
