Rotacaster makes manual movement of loads safer, faster and easier. A member of the Magline family, Magnus, a caster, wheel and gas spring distributor, has added material handling equipment to their offering. Magnus is very excited to offer the full line of Magline products.
The ergonomic benefits of a lightweight aluminum hand truck equipped with Rotacaster self-supporting and stair climber conversions captured the attention of many corporate safety managers. An ergonomic study, available from Magnus, documenting significantly reduced muscular effort and lower back flexion was of great interest. However the combination of light-weight, easy to use and safe Magliners stole the show.
The most important message communicated by safety managers is the concern and need for workplace ergonomic improvements whenever and wherever possible. Especially when workers compensation, lost work days and insurance premiums can be reduced while improving productivity.
According to Peter McKinnon, managing director for Rotacaster, “This innovative design can overcome issues associated with trying to move and handle materials. Also available in an outdoor, all-terrain model, it reduces the effort of manual handling and repetitive movement that can lead to workplace injury. A conversion kit is available for operations that want to retrofit traditional hand trucks.”
An exclusive arrangement has been formed between Rotacaster Wheel Limited and Magnus Mobility Systems Inc. Magnus is the leading, worldwide provider of motion control solutions including casters and wheels, gas springs, levelers, bearings, and accessories. Magnus combines the best of single-source convenience with the benefits of a global network. Strategic distribution and service centers enable Magnus to provide timely delivery of Rotacaster products.
