Jtec Industries Bi-Directional Daughter Carts
If you find yourself with the dilemma of reduced aisle space and see the difficulty in maneuvering a standard center steer or rear steer cart in a given area, fear not! Jtec’s bi-directional daughter carts is meant for this situation. Whether you need a bi-directional daughter cart or a tongue and hitch cart, we have the solution.
How It Works
The secret sauce is in the design of the linkages under the cart. Three swivel casters and one rigid caster connect to those linkages, and allow it to manually turn with a hand lever. This lever-action turns the rigid caster in the direction that intends to push or tug the cart. With a turn of the lever, the direction of the cart changes on a dime! What’s more, as the cart travels to its desired location, it has complete steerability. Without bi-directional capability, the cart requires aisle or floor space to manuever.
With a tongue and hitch mechanical bi-directional daughter cart, the cart disengages from the train by turning the lever. By turning the level, the rigid caster is oriented and the cart is pushed perpendicular from the train, straight into the work cell.
