Important Egro Height Truck Product Info: The bar cradle cart from DC Graves is an excellent material handling cart for transporting bars, pipes, steel rods, and other long heavy objects. But when used improperly, the bar cradle cart can impose danger to the operator and others in the adjacent areas. Please read the following guidelines below to ensure proper use and selection of correct cart.

Using a Single Bar Cradle Cart: Often times many applications require only one bar cradle cart to properly transport your stock materials. First off, when using a single cart your load must always be centered on the cart and the bar or pipe must have its weight evenly distributed over its entire length. Never transport unbalanced materials only using single cradle cart. If you are transporting materials that have weight concentrated to one side your load will be prone to falling off. We offer (3) different lengths of carts 24", 36", and 48" long. We recommend that you never transport materials 3 times longer than the length of your cart. This will ensure that the weight of the materials is properly balanced and will not bow or sage at the ends. Finally, always be sure to stay within load capacities limits.

Using Two or More Bar Cradle Cart: Using multiple bar cradle carts allows the operator to store and transport much longer lengths of materials. Additionally, with each cradle cart you add under your load your capacity increases by 3,000 pounds. Multiple carts must be used when storing unbalanced pipe. For example, iron duct pipes with a flange on one end. It is best practice to evenly distribute the cradle carts under your load to avoid sagging and bowing of materials that may bend.

LQ Series - 5,000-lbs Capacity - Bar Cradle Truck: This model features an all welded steel frame using 3" structural channel. Each truck comes with 3 cradles evenly spaced one at each end and one in the center. All swivel 6" Phenolic casters at both ends and larger 10" rigid casters in the middle allow for the unit to be maneuvered with ease throughout your facility.

LZ Series 10,000-lbs Capacity - Bar Cradle Truck: Super heavy duty bar transporter constructed with 4" structural channel frame. Each unit comes with 4 cradles welded to the 4" frame for superior strength and durability. This line of bar cradle truck offers 8" swivel casters at the ends and 12" centers casters for easy transportation even under the heaviest loads.

Low Bed Height: The two bar cradle trucks have low bed heights of 14" and 16" respectively. This low profile design facilitates easier loading of heavy materials as they do not need to be lifted very high off the floor. In addition, if something were to occur during transit and your load spills out of the bed the material would not fall from a height greater than 16" limiting the potential danger from high impact falls.
