Vehicle Type Burden Carriers

The MC-270 is the industry’s smallest burden carrier. Its narrow, highly maneuverable design can fit through most standard door openings, and will bring you and materials closer to work stations. This low-profile, multi-purpose vehicle boasts a long deck for more cargo space, all-steel unibody construction and hefty 14″ plate steel front cowl. Its low-step entry reduces operator fatigue; its dual self-adjusting drum brakes ensure safe braking performance.
