Used Die Trucks, Handlers & Carts (mold handlers)
Die Handling Equipment is typically broken down into powered (die trucks & handlers) and non-powered (carts). Carts are typically towed around a plant by a forklift or other motorized vehicle. Some companies will use die carts as heavy duty small trailers for rigging needs on flat surfaces.
Common die handlers brands are Elwell Parker, Atlas, Erickson (no longer built), Rico, Autolift, and Schreck. Elwell Parker seems to be the most popular of the bunch.
