It is easy, fast, effortless and is designed to be used by only one technician.
The CarMover side-load system is composed of four plates and works on rails using one plate for every wheel of the vehicle. Each plate weighs only 8 kg or 17.6 pounds. By design, it is easy for the technician to move the vehicle from the end of the conveyor line to the starting point. Each plate’s load capacity is 700 kg or 1,543 pounds.
The CarMover plate is produced with a special aluminum alloy and geometric structure, which guarantees no bending. The plastic connectors, on each side of the plate, permit the vehicle wheels to go up to the plate effortlessly and without any slipping problems.
The CarMover side-load system allows one technician to move a vehicle by pushing it with an effort of only 12 Kg or 26 pounds. The design uses special wheels and a rail system where the point of contact between them is very thin, reducing the friction to a minimum and permitting a technician to move the vehicle using little effort.
The CarMover works with two different types of rails, having the same performance. One is inside the floor level and the other one is above floor level. The number of rail positions is five per bay in Europe and six in North America. This allows the CarMover side-load system to accommodate every model and size of vehicle.
