A short review of our yel-Low Safety Dolly from another happy Saw Trax customer!

Emailed to us from a customer about their yel-Low Safety Dolly purchase:

“We use it to store our fixtures.  It allows us to move the templates to multiple machines with ease.  We may want to look at getting a couple more!”

Our customers love our yel-Low Safety Dolly because of its power, ease of use and versatility.

Concerned About Warehouse Crew and Product Safety?

The yel-Low is preferred by many of our customers due to its concealed safety casters, located underneath the deck, virtually eliminating the risk of foot and ankle injuries due to exposed wheels on hand trucks and forklifts.  Plus, the vertical posts secure most any type of load, including products generally thought to be non-stackable – so your load stays stable.

Yel-Low Safety Dolly Features:

  • Highly engineered for safety + fastest and easiest transport
  • Movable posts for vertical and/or horizontal placement, creating maximum load stability
  • Concealed casters protect your workers
  • Increased bottom line – less product damage and fewer worker injuries!

New! Yel-Low Upgrades:

The original yel-Low design allowed movement in any direction.  We upgraded the yel-Low, and was later upgraded with a fixed caster in the 25” direction to increase ease of movement over longer distances.
Plus… after listening to our customers, we’ve now upgraded the yel-Low Dolly with a bracket which, when the caster is attached, allows moving the yel-Low in the direction of the wider 30” side. This enables carrying a 20-inch wider material load in one trip than before!

10 Ways the Scoop Dolly Will Improve Your Warehouse Productivity

 

The amazing Scoop Dolly is an an ingenius material handling solution. At first glance, its design seems like a clever blend of both a hand cart and a dolly, both working together… only it’s even better. That’s because it has innovative features that enable one-person moving of tall, large and top-heavy loads that could never be moved with most carts and dollies.
Here are 10 reasons your warehouse should make the switch today.

  1. Functionality. This is where the Scoop Dolly is boss. One person can easily load and move items up to 800 to 1,000 lbs. – all alone – thanks to the pivoting feature of the carrying section. It carries the weight of the load, not your worker. We’re talking everything from door and window units to prefabricated walls and staircases — even humongous bureaus and machinery. (The base model carries up to 800lbs.; the weight upgrade hikes the limit up to 1,000 lbs.)

  2. Ease of Loading. The hand truck-like scoop slides easily under your load. Then, thanks to the Scoop Dolly’s ergonomic design, the load is easily tilted back onto the base, into a preset, load-specific, secure position. The base stays on the floor the entire time! Gone is the struggle to lean your load back, and then try to determine the best angle for transport afterward.

  3. Ease of Steering. Would you rather transport a load that feels virtually weightless and is completely secure, or a load that must be carefully and constantly managed in order to prevent crashes, spills, and worker/product damage? The Scoop Dolly can secure and hold your load, and move it in ANY direction.

  4. Fewer Workers Required. It’s true — one person can more easily load and move items that would normally require a 2-person team. Don’t believe it? Check out the multitude of videos of the Scoop Dolly in action here. https://vimeo.com/360700387

  5. Faster Loading and Transporting. Since the Scoop Dolly is designed to take quite a bit of the work away from your crew in terms of loading/unloading and transporting, this is a no-brainer; it takes less time, with fewer people, to do more work!

  6. Increased Safety. Once your load is tilted back, it is completely secure in the tilted position. You can even walk away if necessary, and leave it tilted without the back strain of lifting it up and putting it down each time you stop. Top-heavy items will not “get away” from your workers because there is no balancing act involved. It’s also safer for transporting your load directly into a truck vs. a forklift, which requires a front-end worker being placed between the load and the end of the truck.

  7. Cost Savings. Let’s be honest, in order to do all that the Scoop Dolly does, you’d have to invest in a top-notch dolly AND a top-notch hand cart, with possibly a forklift on standby as well. You’d also need to pay more than one person to load and navigate larger loads. Add in maintenance costs for such things as hand cart tires, the cost of damaged products, and worker’s compensation for injuries – and the Scoop Dolly is the clear winner in saving dollars and headaches.

  8. Versatility. Carts and dollies aren’t made to cover all of your warehouse needs; they can be somewhat limited in performance in comparison to the Scoop Dolly, which allows you to customize the angle of your load for stabilization of very large and heavy objects, and gives you far more control of it during transport.

  9. Upgradeability. Aside from the base model’s impressive capabilities, the multitude of Scoop Dolly options allow you to customize the unit even further. These include dock transition wheels for maneuvering over floor transitions and into trucks, brakes for completely immobilizing your load, an incredible leverage step which almost completely reduces back strain, a weight upgrade for items up to 1,000 lbs., a directional wheel for navigating easily around corners, and an add-on package for low-profile storage when not in use.

  10. Trustworthiness. The Scoop Dolly is many customers’ favorite warehouse helper. That’s because it consistently provides a low-maintenance tool that is American-made of all-steel construction, with durable powder-coating, casters instead of tires. It is simply built to last, and is the go-to material handling solution for all of our customers.

What is behind door number one; 8 ft. by 8 ft. Quad, door number one.

For those who can remember “Let’s make a Deal”, this question may sound familiar but for those who have to move this behemoth of a door, the question may sound a little arduous.  The real question is how do you safely and easily move “Door number one?” That is where the Scoop Dolly by SawTrax has you covered.  What is behind, supporting and moving this quad door unit is the SawTrax Scoop Dolly. 

 SawTrax Scoop Dolly

“The Scoop” as it is called by the manufacturer, was originally designed to take 500 lb. ten foot wide crated panel saws from the factory dock into the freight trucks.

 SawTrax Scoop Dolly

It is currently being used in many industries including the Door/Window, staircase manufacturing and in large Home Center Chain stores.  It can move appliances like refrigerators and ranges, to boxed sheds and pre-fabbed walls. 

The standard dolly is rated at an 800# capacity but is easily upgraded to a 1000# capacity.  Prices start at $849 and carts can be customized to fit the customer’s needs with dock transition wheels, a leverage step, brakes and a directional wheel.   For more information contact Saw Trax Mfg. at info@sawtrax.com, 770-974-0021 or see multiple videos online at https://www.sawtrax.com/product/scoopdolly/

Alive In 5

The yel-Low Safety Dolly prototype is still going strong on its fifth birthday. Havertys Furniture and Aarons Rental were the two original customers that asked for a very low loading dolly that could go in any direction. This request was voiced after trying the Dolly Max all terrain utility dolly. Based on this input, we developed the yel-Low Safety Dolly.
After 5 years, we looked in on one of the original 5 Safety Dolly prototypes and it was still going strong at Havertys in Marietta, GA. The first picture below shows the original dolly and the second one is a recent picture in that store. Besides Havertys, the other dollies were tested by several companies.

American Signature testing
HH Gregg testing

Testing at a large electronics chain store that is sensitive about its name.

Since the original dollies were made, several improvements have been made to the dollies that improve their usefulness based on user input.  For instance, there is 18 vertical post positions instead of the original 14.  The dolly can be raised for outdoor use as seen below.

They can be trained together to be pulled by a tug.
The dollies can be used for furniture, mattresses, big screen TV’s, kayaks, ping pong tables and just about any use.

They can be connected as a long dolly for warehouse use.

So, if you know someone in the market for a portable, all-steel high capacity dolly that has 3 to 4 times the carrying capacity of most other devices and can go the distance, tell them about the Saw Trax yel-Low Safety dollies.

While there was some really cool hi-tech digital products there, we brought our tried-and-true Sign Maker panel saw, made specifically with sign makers in mind. Complete workhorses for sign shops, we made one machine for all of their cutting needs. No longer need to buy a panel saw AND a mat-cutter. It is equipped with specialty accessories for cutting all of the substrates used in the sign industry, in both directions, vertically and horizontally. This “all-cutting” substrate cutter is ideal for making precision cuts in sheet goods that are up to 1¾ inches thick.

The high tech world IoT was everywhere at ISA 2019 … but a Saw Trax panel saw is a timeless classic!

Scoop Dolly At Home Depot

Home Depot loves the Scoop Dolly for their Window & Door departments.  They’ve learned that it keeps their employees safer when moving these large and heavy products, while at the same making it possible for one employee to do the work, rather than two or more. And that helps productivity.  Another plus:  the employees really like it, too!  Scoop Dolly is win/win for employers and employees.

In order to provide the in-store training that their employees will need, Mike (owner) and Christopher (GM) went to a nearby Home Depot yesterday to create a training video, featuring two Home Depot employees.

Another Great Show-IBS 2019

Saw Trax owner, Mike Della Polla, and Saw Trax General Manager, Christopher Main were manning our booth at IBS 2019.

It was another great show!

Our featured product, the Scoop Dolly, was a big hit.  It’s perfect for moving windows and doors, and also for moving our very own Christopher in a Box!  It’s also great for moving large appliances.  Mike invented it out of his own need to move and load our vertical panel saws.  It solved his problem — maybe it could solve one of yours!

Leverage is the reason the Scoop Dolly is so safe and easy for one person handle large and heavy items such as windows and doors.
