New! Akro-Mils® Introduces the Bosskart(TM) Waste Collection Carts with Unparalleled Strength and Efficiency

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: AKRON, OH (October 2003)- Akro-Mils, a leading source for waste handling and transport products, introduces the new 65-gallon and 96-gallon BossKart(TM) line of rotationally molded carts for residential waste management. The 65-gallon model fits a broad range of residential collection profiles and is especially well-suited to programs where mandatory recycling calls for a mid-size container.

Combined with the new MegaKart(TM) line of injection-molded waste carts, Akro-Mils offers the industry's best innovations for selection, strength, performance, and efficiency.

The BossKart line incorporates a unique pleated panel design in the sidewall for exceptional vertical strength. The pleat panels also allow the cart to recover quickly from the squeeze of a fully automated collection system. An extra-deep, latch bar pocket insures an easy, secure hook up with semi-automated lift systems.

Deep ribs in the BossKart's domed lid provide exceptional strength and allow over packing. Channels between the ribs quickly drain rainwater and eliminate any standing water. Lids are molded in one piece with a special locking hub that makes permanent installation a quick and easy process.

Molded-in scuff rails on the base contribute to over-all durability and extend the cart's service life. The BossKart is proportionally shaped and balanced to handle full loads with ease. Carts are equipped with 10 or 12 inch, molded HDPE wheels depending on container capacity. The snap-on design simplifies wheel installation and makes replacing a damaged wheel easier. A foot tilt area allows easy access to the axle for maximum leverage when tipping the cart to move it. Axles are plated solid steel and give ihe BossKart a load rating of 335 lbs. in the 96-gallon size, and 230 lbs. in the 65-gallon model. BossKarts can be ordered in a selection of colors and hot-stamped with serial numbers and custom logos for quick identification.
