In our never-ending quest to move loads as safely as possible, Hamilton now offers custom e-Power™ Cart Solutions. With a payload capacity range from 2,000 to 40,000 lbs., our motorized carts can help eliminate all manual operations to get the job done safer and more efficiently.
Research from the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety shows that push/pull forcesas little as 35 pounds can contribute to musculoskeletal workplace injuries. Powered carts can help you move heavy payloads while achieving your ergonomic and performance goals. Here’s how you can benefit:
- Reduce employee injuries from strain and fatigue
- Safely transport materials through production
- Improve your ergonomic footprint
- Boost employee morale and productivity
- Increase your bottom line
Keep work zones forklift free
Especially handy for when you’ve exhausted all manual transport options for heavy loads, powered carts offer easy maneuverability in tight spaces. Many carts can pivot from the center point, providing 360-degree control. Motorized carts are also ideal for moving stock that final distance from trailer trains to the assembly line. There’s no need to transfer materials from a warehouse trailer to a smaller conveyance for manual handling. No need to use a forklift for lateral transport. The powered cart does it all.
A flexible workhorse
Among the many design possibilities, Hamilton’s e-Power™ Hybrid design feature (highlighted in the adjacent video) allows the cart to function as both a powered cart and a towable trailer. Tow heavy loads long distances as a conventional trailer as well as maneuver cargo into final position for production. Since anyone can position the loaded trailer without additional help, powered carts can be a safer, more versatile and more economical choice in the long run when every minute counts on production floors.

Operating the powered trailer with the added Hybrid design feature is easy. The drive wheels automatically retract when you lower the towing tongue to enable safe and easy transport. Raise the tongue for manual maneuvering and the wheels come down, ready for powered movement. All carts come with Hamilton reliable running gear to expedite manual operation, such as when you need to quickly align empty trailers for towing.
