Outline

Dollies— Used mainly at construction sites, were made of steel and very heavy, as much as 70 kg unloaded. Because of a shortage of manpower due to the declining birth rate and of the aging of the working population, solutions were needed. The Heracles CUBE AK-03 was born as one of them. The steel has been changed to aluminum and the six wheels instead of four prevent it from getting stuck in grooves and provide stability and maneuverability. The corners have been rounded to lessen impact, and their color adds visibility in a construction environment. Footbrakes have also been added.
