SM100 Electric Tug moving Roll Cage

Victorian Beverage Chain purchases Electric Tug & Roll Cage for heavy loads

A few months ago we were contacted by a large alcohol beverage chain in Victoria that needed assistance moving their Alcohol Products.

Moving bottles of Alcohol around Shopping Centres and Warehouses can be a difficult task, and as such we provided a solution with our Roll Cages and SM100+ Electric Tug.

The SM100+ can move up to 1,200kg, and using an attachment such as the Gripping Clamp it is designed to make a solid connection to the Retailquip supplied Roll Cage.

Using the Gripping Clamp it hooks onto the wire, or chassis of the Roll Cage, and grabs hold of the bottom frame. Once connected it creates an unbreakable bond between the Tug and the Roll Cage.

As Alcohol is quite heavy and as you start adding more and more weight to the cage, it can become beyond the capability of moving something safely around a store or shopping centre during the last few metres or end of the Supply Chain, so by using an Electric Tug it makes far more safe and easy, along with meeting the OHS Requirements.

Gold Coast company purchases 2 Electric Tugs & Roll Cages to improve workflow

A few weeks ago we headed out to the Gold Coast to visit a company to discuss with them on how using a MasterMover Electric Tug, and Roll Cages in their warehouse could improve their workflow.

The solution was using a SM100 (Electric Tug), and a 2 Sided Roll Cage, and Foldia Exel Roll Cage that Retailquip provides.

The SM100+ is a battery operated electric tug that makes it suitable for moving 1,200 kg loads even on slopes.

With an interchangeable battery, two powerful drive motors, two speed settings and automatic braking – the SM100+ is a multi-purpose electric tug that makes moving large or heavy wheeled loads easier and safer, particularly in busy or congested areas.

Electric Tug SM100 with Roll Cages

Following the Purchase of our Roll Cages, and Electric Tugs we provided a successful training session on how to use both the Cages & Tugs effectively.

Because of the distance they had to move a number of boxes and goods around the Distribution Center which was beyond the safe zone of what an individual can move.

The SM100 Electric Tug is now doing all the work for them, and allowing the operator to Push/Pull & Steer loads throughout the Warehouse.

For more information on the SM100 visit our website here.

Electric Trailer Tug

Demonstration of Electric Trailer Mover to Customer in Brisbane

I headed out to a National Company on the Southside of Brisbane this morning to demonstrate one of our Electric Trailer Mover Systems.

The company was a manufacturing business that deals in a lot of material handling.

The problem was constantly getting trucks that were not busy – to move their trailers into the warehouse where they would then have them loaded with an overhead crane and moved outdoors ready for dispatch.

By having an electric tug – it would be designed to assist in speeding up the trailers and having them ready for dispatch.

We showed and demonstrated the Operations Manager, exactly how the MasterMover TMS1650+ can allow a single pedestrian operator to move the trailers with no licence required.

Foldia Plus Roll Cage in Supermarket

Why is the Foldia Plus one of the best Roll Cages around?

We live in a fast past world these days…. Everyone is trying to get things out the door quicker, and more efficiently. Roll Cages are used everywhere throughout the world improving Supply Chain distribution from warehouse to shelf.

At Retailquip we are always trying to develop new ways of making it easy to go literally from Shed to Shelf quicker, and more efficently with less double handling.

Finding the right equipment that is compatible for every environment is always tricky, but where the Foldia Plus stands out is that it has adjustable sides that can be raised or lowered where space is limited.

What does it do?

It’s a Roll Cage with adjustable sides. It allows the operator to easily decrease the height of the unit where door way or movement is restricted to that of a normal full height roll cage.

The sides can be fully extended to a height of 1800mm or if space is limited, reduced to approximately 1300mm. Incremental heights can also be selected.

Additional shelving can also be purchased using our Removable Shelves or alternatively there is the option of the Smart Shelf, which is a fixed shelve that slides up & down the cage to suit different load requirements.

You know what else is really great about this Roll Cage?

Believe it or not it folds in half, and is extremely light weight.

Marand purchases Electric Tug for Custom Trolley

Electric Tug for moving Custom Trolleys

Marand purchases Electric Tug MT800+ for Special Project

Marand is a leading global supplier of precision engineered solutions to a range of industries including Aerospace, Defence, Rail, Automotive and Mining.

After contacting us back in late 2017 for a large scale project – Nicholas Webster, Project Engineer said that it was always easy and simple to deal with MasterMover & Retailquip. Working with the engineers in the UK was fantastic and I believe we have a perfect outcome because of our collaboration.

Nicholas was in the early design stages of an internal project at Marand, one of his tasks was to simplify and significantly reduce the time taken to handle large aerospace tools in and out of machining centres.

After hearing of MasterMover via a partner company, he contacted Retailquip to find out more information.

The difficulty was that we were looking for a non-standard build; we needed to incorporate a complicated electrical interface between the MasterMover machine and our own internally designed trolley which the MasterMover would be steering and driving.

After working directly with MasterMover engineers in the U.K. for several weeks Marand could develop a solution that both parties were happy with, that met both of our requirements. The ease in which it was to work with both MasterMover & Retailquip was a real breath of fresh air. Even on highly technical matters it was a breeze and responses were always very prompt.

Upon delivery of the units to our facility in Australia, Retailquip attended site to unbox, commission and train Marand in the use of the units, also spending significant time with to test the system, using  the MasterMover units in conjunction with our trolleys.

The Industrial Electric Tug, MT800+ allow a single pedestrian operator to easily push, pull and steer wheeled loads weighing up to a maximum of 8,000 kg.

As part of the MasterTug range, the MT800+ features a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tested steel chassis and a durable planetary gear box. All couplings are made from zinc coated steel for strength and the industrial drive wheel is long-lasting and provides the perfect amount of traction.

New Zealand Hospital - 3 MasterMOver AT200 Tows

Auckland City Hospital purchases 3 x AT200 MasterMovers

Health Alliance uses 3 MasterMover AT200 for Auckland City Hospital

The AT200 TOW is perfect for safely towing loads where weight transfer is not possible, up to 2,000 kg.

With 2 drive motors, it allows the operator to easily move the machine slowly and connect simultaneously to any load with a draw bar, towing eye or ball hitch fitting.

Health Alliance contacted Retailquip initially looking for someone to service/repair their Electric Tugs as they were not functioning very well, and needed them fixed. However with limited parts being available Retailquip were unable to repair them – so instead we presented our MasterMover range and decided to offer them on trial to see if they would work.

The MasterMover trial proved successful, and Auckland City Hospital purchased 3 of the AT200 TOWS.

Taking delivery earlier this week, on Wednesday – along with Training provided by Retailquip, the tugs allowed Health Alliance to move their Trollies reducing & minimizing Health & Safety issues along with improving their delivery/loading & unloading efficiencies as well.
