North Star VersaCab Ware Cart and Shelf Truck:
North Star Shelf Trucks are moderately priced
but of industrial quality. They were originally designed for potters, but they are
now used in print shops, machine shops, warehouses, hospitals and factories around the
world. These trucks are a wonderful addition to any studio or school and will last a
lifetime with almost no care.
There are many unique features that
distinguish North Star Shelf Trucks from all others.
North Star uses a much larger, wider, stronger
caster than any other manufacturer. Full 6 inch diameter American-made industrial
ball bearing casters are rated at 300 pounds each (or 1,200 pounds) and roll easily, even
over rough or contaminated floors. All four casters swivel for easy maneuvering and
two have foot-operated parking brakes.
Shelves are supported at each end by brackets
of a unique design that simply drop into square holes spaced every 2 inches along the
corner uprights. The spacing between shelves and the number of shelves is instantly
adjustable without tools. All shelves except the bottom one, which rides directly on
the base, can be placed at any level so there is never wasted space and conveniently slide
in and out. For low pieces, such as tiles, the truck can hold as many as 22
This is the only such truck in the world
engineered from ground up to ship by UPS for lowest freight cost and quickest shipping.
The truck is made entirely of heavy 14-gauge
steel with North Star's blue powder coat finish. Each truck comes with four pair of
shelf brackets, which will yield five shelf levels (the base carries the fifth shelf).
North Star shelves are simply 24" x 36" rectangles of 1/2" MDO
plywood trimmed with blue T-molding. Those who need heavier shelves, some other
configuration (such as two 12" x 36" shelves per level) or who want to save on
shipping cost find it easy to make their own.
North Star Trucks measure 39 inches wide by 24
inches deep by 67 inches tall. They carry 24" x 36" shelves of any
thickness. Safe load capacity is 750 pounds.
