Benefits of this Product:

The DCD 100 trolleys offered several advantages over conventional trolleys. Management trialed the DCD 100 trolleys extensively and established the following benefits:

  • Push button elevation of the load eliminated the manual effort of the pump up trolleys.
  • The high quality casters and low weight of the DCD trolleys made them very mobile and easier to push on a variety of floor surfaces.
  • DCD 100 trolleys have a larger platform that was more stable than other trolleys.
  • Safetech were able to customise the deck to improve the function and safety of the trolleys.
  • Staff feedback when trialing the units the trolleys was extremely positive and made the changeover to the DCD 100 very easy.

Alternatives:
