Motrec ® MC Series Burden Carriers

Motrec ® MC Series Burden Carriers

Motrec MC Series Burden Carriers are the ultimate workhorses, built for the long haul, with the power to get the job done. Ideal for transporting materials around manufacturing plants, warehouses, distribution centers, and other industrial facilities. Small but strong, MC Series Burden Carriers can quickly tow heavy products and/or large amounts of products throughout a facility. They can fit into narrow aisles and around tight corners — some models even through standard doorways.  They excel at carrying products to their destinations more quickly than larger vehicles, like traditional warehouse  forklifts.  Burden Carriers are agile and statistically less likely to run into shelves in a warehouse or other equipment, so count on them to deliver products with little to no damage.

Whether used for order picking, towing and even as maintenance vehicles, MC Series Burden Carriers come in both sit-down and stand-up models, single or dual passenger, with load capacities up to 5,000 lbs., and the ability to tow up to 6,000 lbs.
