Year-over-year growth of Topper Industrial Mother Daughter carts is projected at 50 percent from 2018 through 2023.

The term Fork Truck Free (or the initiative toward increasing fork truck effectiveness) has become the first initiative for many facilities starting a Lean manufacturing journey. Primary motivators for this initiative are efficiency metrics and the stated objective to improve safety in the workplace.


Extensive research supports the installation of tuggers in conjunction with Mother Daughter carts significantly reduced personal injury and damage to product. Tuggers with a train of carts ensures that material movement becomes predictable, dependable, and available in environments that may not be suitable for operators for safety reasons.
