An uncommon trailer for a common application

Tuesday, Apr 28, 2020

If you’ve ever watched stamping dies—those one-of-a-kind precision tools that cut and shape sheet metal parts—do their thing, you know they’re pretty cool. You also know they’re pretty heavy. It’s a good thing Hamilton carts are masters at transporting monstrous stamping dies for our customers everywhere. In fact, it’s one of the most common applications for which we build trailers.

Here’s a pic of a recent beauty we designed for a major American car manufacturing facility. Engineered to withstand a whopping 100,000-pound payload, the cart features a wooden deck for extra scratch protection. Four-wheel steering ensures the 180-inch-long cart is cornering tight aisles and intersections like a champ.

It all adds up to one wheely productive ride.
