Towed Transfer Carts

Towed Transfer Cart using forklift

Towed by winch, forklift, behind another powered transfer cart or towed by people.

These towed or pulled type transfer carts are not powered and are meant to be pulled or towed. Pulling can be done by another transfer cart that is powered via coupling the carts together. Alternatively, a fork lift (of adequate capacity) can be used to pull a cart of this type.

A transfer cart of this type when pulled by a winch can be a cost effective alternative to a powered transfer cart (on rail) to move loads along a fixed rail path.

Pull type transfer carts are versatile and can be easily customized to suit applications.


  • Production assembly lines
  • Material delivery
  • Stock transfer
  • Fork lift trailer
  • Die transfer


  • Lengths of 4, 6 or 8 FT (or to suit application)
  • Widths of 4 or 6 FT (or to suit application)


  • All welded construction of structural steel
  • Two swivel and two rigid steel casters
  • Coupling connection for towing
  • Capacity signage both side
