Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2005092746A1] A compact, reconfigurable device that allows its operator to move large and/or heavy loads, consisting of a modular base frame (1) fitted with a roller (2) which is driven by an electric or pneumatic motor and gearbox (3) attached to and residing primarily inside of said drive roller (2), a rear axle and maneuvering wheels (4) that is able to freely rotate forwards and backwards within the base frame (1) and to which is attached various types of handle shafts such as a straight (5) or "L-shaped" (6) handle shaft. Such handle shafts (6) include a controller throttle in the handle grip (7) that with the two axes of motion (pivoting rear axle forward/back and rotating handle shaft in the rear axle (4) provides the operator greater versatility in maneuvering the device. Further accessories such as brackets provide additional functionality, such as pushing and rolling with bracket (8). In the case of battery-powered models, the battery packs (9) can be quick-changed to a quick-charger (10) allowing offline charging of a battery pack while the device is in operation, avoiding the requirement for the machine to carry lager batteries or be inoperable while said batteries aye being recharged.
