Back To School With The SmartMover
Pushing and pulling heavy catering carts laden with baked goods, tins and frozen foods was taking a toll on kitchen staff at a boarding school in the south of England.
At least two employees working in close proximity were needed to move the carts, which weigh up to 880 lb each. What’s more, space in the kitchen was tight – meaning that staff members were forced to maneuver around corners and through narrow gaps, exposing them to a greater risk of tipping accidents and personal injury.
Now the school is using a SmartMover SM100+ to take the strain. Designed to control the load weight with minimal effort, it can be easily and safely deployed by just one user.
A compact footprint means that operators can use the machine in confined working environments, with full visibility right around the load. There is less danger of bumps and spillages, while staff can keep a safe distance from each other when moving supplies – all without the aches and strains associated with manual handling.
MasterMover’s SmartMover range is widely used by commercial kitchens across the world. Also available in stainless steel, these small but powerful electric tuggers allow a single pedestrian operator to move up to 2,600 lb with ease, even on slippery and uneven surfaces.
