The more specialized ladder cart features a mix of structural foam and commercial-grade powder-coated steel to achieve a maximum weight rating of 500 pounds. The cart's tall profile allows easier access and greater comfort for the user. It also has the flexibility to meet a variety of workplace requirements with a number of tool holders and locking cabinets.

The mobile work center is designed to allow users to move a great number of tools conveniently around a work site. The cart features a built-in cord wrap to accommodate a number of power tools and work lights. Furthermore, pegboard side panels allow for convenient and flexible tool storage. Locking bars allow for secure storage when away from the cart, and locking casters ensure the safety of the user and the equipment. The sturdy construction allows the work surface atop the cart to support up to 250 pounds.
