Unique vehicle mover reduces physical strain on staff

Aug 19, 2015
Stringo S3, the latest generation of vehicle mover, has been developed to focus on the operator and the handling technique. This means improved ergonomics and greater safety for both the operator and the vehicle.
One of the fundamental advantages of all Stringo models is their ergonomics. The fact that just one person can easily and efficiently move a car indoors with the ignition off, without putting their body under a lot of strain, reduces the risk of employees getting strain injuries.  And with the Stringo S3, the company has taken further steps in that direction by improving the working position for the operator.  

When vehicles are transported indoors the space available is often limited; Stringo S3 gives the operator a good overview and the best setup for smoothly and safely manoeuvring the vehicle over to its new location. Contributing factors here are the minimal turning angle when using a ride-on platform, a new control handle and a control lever that can be adjusted for every single operator. The new way of steering the vehicle contributes to a more relaxed handling technique, leading to more focus on the move itself.  All the regular service points are in one place to facilitate servicing and maintenance so looking after a Stringo properly should be problem-free. 

“Every single aspect is important to us,” said Nina Thelin, CEO of Famek, the company that manufactures Stringo. “Every thought, every customer and every transport play their part in a product that transports vehicles indoors efficiently and powerfully without emitting any hazardous substances. We move seven million cars each year without spending a single penny on fuel. As well as being kind on the environment, this also benefits the staff because the risk of strain injuries is significantly reduced due to the vehicle mover taking on the heavy load. The new Stringo S3 demonstrates that we never leave anything to chance when it comes to development.”
