The Bin Transporter is a 4-wheel-steer trailer for hauling bins of parts between buildings. The Bin Transporter is an adaptation of Flat Bed Transporter, designed to haul up to 40,000 lb. This was developed for a customer who needed to transport bins, 42″ wide x 39″ deep x 42″ tall, of parts that needed to be protected from the weather when moving between buildings. It uses a similar box frame with internal reinforcement to take serious abuse.
The heavy duty kingpin casters use dual 12″ x 5″ polyurethane tires rolling on tapered roller bearings. Linked 4-wheel steering provides easy maneuverability in tight areas. It has a hinged tongue for towing with a tugger. The transporter is enclosed with sheet metal on the top and ends and has roll-up doors on both sides that can be opened for forklift access. The transporter holds up to 20 bins.
