Jescraft Introduces New Line of Lightweight Professional Drywall Carts
Bogota, N.J. (October 20, 2009) -- Jescraft expands its offering of heavy-duty drywall carts with the introduction of the PRO-LITE professional line, the ultra-lightweight alternative to its popular WB series of drywall carts. Available in sixteen models, the new carts feature an all-welded tubular steel frame that reduces weight by 30 percent without sacrificing strength and stability.
All Jescraft PRO-LITE drywall carts are equipped with easy-rolling, extreme-duty swivel casters for enhanced maneuverability over all types of surfaces. Smooth and non-marking, these 8" x 2" elastomer casters provide a cushioned ride that helps deflect floor debris such as fasteners or metal shavings. Two types of decks are offered: heavy-duty steel plate or replaceable, impact-resistant ¼-inch thick UHMW polyethylene. The "EZ-Glide" polyethylene deck reduces the weight of the cart by four to five pounds, while its glossy surface allows material to slide on and off easily. The standard size deck is 45" x 12." For moving extra large loads of drywall, a 48" x 18" deck is also available.
PRO-LITE carts come in varying widths (20," 24" and 28") and three bumper styles. The entry-level PL-100 series features a front bumper with a recessed inset back bumper that allows easy passage through narrow entrances. The PL-200 series has a full wrap-around bumper designed to protect work areas from dings and scratches. For easy turning and protecting work areas, the PL-300 series combines a full wrap-around bumper with a recessed inset back. All 12"-deck models have a load capacity of 3,200 pounds and range in weight from 60 to 70 pounds. Carts with 18" decks can carry up to 3,600 pounds and weigh 70 to 80 pounds.
