Oily Shapeshifter. Jacked Up Jack. One-Eyed Astro. These aren’t the year’s trendiest Halloween costumes. They’re custom Hamilton trailers we built to tackle extreme applications.

Oily Shapeshifter

Built for an oil and gas giant, this A-frame tilt cart transforms to fit steel plates through claustrophobia-inducing aisles. Watch the video to see it in action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Green Goblin

Recycling can be a real beast. For proof, look at this 8-foot-wide by 20-foot long trailer and its 28-inch-thick deck to support 30 tons of industrial recycling machinery. But the coolest part? The slime green paint job to match the company’s attitude.

One-Eyed Astro

Working with NASA over the years has been both a treat and an honor. Plus, it’s led to some of our most unique work. Like this custom, circular dolly that hauled a space capsule destined for Mars.

Jacked Up Jack

It’s fitting that an automotive supplier would need a trailer with 25-inch rubber wheels, which are taller than car tires. We designed this jacked up, fifth wheel steel trailer to haul 10 tons worth of car suspensions without budging.

The tallest steel building in the West belongs to New York with an assist from Hamilton’s wooden carts.During the past – and final – two years of One World Trade Center’s construction, New Jersey distributor Colonial Hardware geared up contractors with dozens of our hardwood platform carts.

Unlike traditional steel-deck carts, a wooden surface protects loads – usually construction supplies – and defends pricey glass curtain walls from scratches and dents.

Mold-on, smooth rolling rubber wheels won’t damage floors before tenants move in, which include residents and businesses like Condé Nast and China’s Beijing Vantone.

And with running gear arranged in a tilt-type diamond pattern, electricians or HVAC technicians can maneuver carts in cramped spaces with ease.

Set to open by late November 2014, the 1,776-foot skyscraper trumps Willis Tower by a few hundred feet. Sorry, Chicagoans. At least the battle for pizza supremacy is still up for debate.

From One World Trade Center to Your Living Room

Kick your feet up on a piece of American and Hamilton history. We build and sell coffee table versions of the same carts used at One World Trade Center.

It’s the perfect industrial-chic centerpiece for a living room or man cave. Plus, it’s just as durable as our factory carts, so pile on all the beer, coasters, candles, TV remotes, and books you’ll never read.

Interested? Call or email Mark Lippert for details. 513-454-2642.

A splash of color in an unlikely place keeps Crown Equipment’s manufacturing operations on track.

A world leader in material handling equipment depends on Hamilton for in-house transport of raw goods and line stocks. But in the past, its trailers often vanished – usually poached by another department.

Now, we paint the company’s carts red, blue, green or yellow, so employees know whose turf a trailer belongs to. And just like that, missing cart reports plummeted by 100 percent.
