Moving heavy and awkward loads from an inside production area to outside containers ready for shipping was proving a challenge for a world-leading manufacturer of cables. Reliance on forklift trucks meant that valuable loads were not secure when being lifted and transported – putting staff at risk through lack of visibility and the danger of overbalancing. Meanwhile, ensuring the necessary clearance when using overhead cranes was resulting in wasted time and expense.

A MasterMover PS3000+ and bespoke trolley now allows for precision movement when transporting reels of cables from production to shipping containers, meaning that a single operator can push, pull and steer the load using a remote control for total, all-round visibility.

The trolley, which was designed by our Special Projects’ Team, is capable of lifting, loading and securely transporting different size reels.

It’s a custom, all-in-one solution that has reduced the reliance on expensive forklift trucks and overhead cranes. Today, operations run more smoothly and efficiently, thanks to a bespoke design that offers complete flexibility for now and the future.

James Jones, Special Projects’ Director, said: “The PS3000+ is our most powerful electric tug yet and allows a single operator to move loads of up to 30,000 kg. Our Special Projects’ Team were also called on to design a bespoke trolley – showing that, whatever the challenge, we have the expertise to create a precision engineered solution tailored to our customers’ needs.”
