Rotacaster makes manual movement of loads safer, faster and easier according to Lorie King Rogers, Associate Editor at Modern Materials Handling. Rogers noted during MODEX 2012 Rotacaster Wheel (Booth 3520) welcomed attendees to a hands-on demonstration as it introduced its new, self-supporting hand truck: the Rotatruck. David Dosier, Rotacaster product manager, displayed the four-wheel, self-supporting Rotatruck as well as the all-terrain model.

The magazine of 81,000 subscribers represents the largest and most qualified audience of materials handling buyers in the marketplace as documented on the current BPA Statement.
Rogers noted, “Designed with a multi-directional wheel known as the Rotacaster, the four-wheel hand truck rotates easily in small spaces and can actually move loads sideways. 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.”
