Flexible Features for Different Applications
Many BHS transfer carriages can be mounted to an existing pallet truck, converting your existing equipment into an efficient, reliable battery changer. Other models include self-powered travel or track-guided manual mobility. BHS transfer carriages utilize a variety of technologies to suit different operating conditions, including hook and chain, magnetic, and vacuum grips, each carefully engineered to prevent common sources of forklift battery damage and premature casing wear.
The full range of BHS Battery Transfer Carriages — available in every combination of manual and powered functionality — is equipped with smooth-rolling casters to easily transport batteries to charging stands. Phenolic wheels provide low rolling resistance without damaging floors. Battery carts feature heavy duty construction for an extraordinarily long service life, and load capacities from 2,400 to 3,000 pounds support most types of industrial batteries.
In the battery compartment, roller beds comprised of heavy duty, poly-sleeved rollers facilitate transfer while preventing sparks and resisting corrosion. Some transfer carriages are available with friction strips at the end of the battery bed to ensure stability during travel, and in most models, a variety of compartment width options can accommodate batteries of virtually any size.
Most of our products feature a powerful steel frame with an acid- and scratch-resistant powder coating. Exceptional craftsmanship ensures that every BHS cart and carriage provides dependable functionality across its entire service life.
