  • Power-assisted Carting System for Retail Market

    The all KART M3 series is the 3rd generation of power cart return systems. The KART M3 increases cart return productivity by over 50% while reducing the risk of injury to employees and guests. This powerful combination of high productivity and increased safety allows stores to recover their investment.
    Power assist technology and ergonomic design protect employees from strain related injuries normally associated with manual cart collection, while simultaneously improving parking lot efficiency and perception. Increased productivity combined with substantial savings from fewer job-related injuries makes the proven value of the KART® M3 impossible to ignore… $20,000 saved every year for each store that uses a KART®. With this value proposition, most stores recover their initial investment in 6 months or less.
