Martins Industries has announced a new tire/wheel trolley to its roster of tire equipment. Dubbed the Canuck Tire Puck (#MCTP) due to its Canadian origins and resemblance to the iconic ice hockey puck, the new trolley helps to prevent common workplace injuries and accidents by reducing the need for labor-intensive tire handling.
With a weight capacity of 300 lbs/135 kg and four easy-glide swivel caster wheels, technicians can use the Canuck Tire Puck as a more efficient tire/wheel handling. Equipped with brakes and a solid UV resistant frame, the Canuck Tire Puck also makes for an attractive display indoors and out. The Canuck Tire Puck can also be maneuvered with stacked tires with the help of one of Martins Tire Riders (tire carts).
“We saw many customers making small wooden or steel platforms to move their tires around the shop, either to display them or for improved handling. So, the Research and Development team at Martins created a sturdy, simple and cost-effective solution,” said Martins Industries President and Founder Martin Depelteau. “And we decided, why not call it the Canuck Tire Puck. After all, the marketing department is in Canada.”
