KNAACK LLC has improved the design of the skids used with its job site chests, cabinets and field station. The upgraded new 4-way skids provide forklift access from all sides, as well as improved durability and an easier method of attaching casters.

The 4-way skids, already included on the new Field Station (119-01), are now a standard feature on all storagemaster chests, jobmaster chests and cabinets, KNAACK classic storage chests, and the monster box series.

The versatile 4-way forklift access allows greater mobility and ease of positioning products, even in tightly confined areas on job sites or in warehouses, saving time and labor costs, according to the manufacturer.

The new 4-way skids are made of heavy-duty, 7-gauge steel for enhanced durability. The improved bolt/nut combination attaches the caster even more securely to the skid. Durability tests indicate the 4-way skids outperform the 2-way skid in strength and resilience.

The improved design also makes casters easier and faster to attach — with a bolt/nut fastener system rather than the previous thread-cutting bolts. Casters will include fastener kits for both 2-way and 4-way skids. A separate bolt/nut kit (7763) for use on the 4-way skids also is available.

KNAACK job site storage equipment is available through a national network of trained distributors.
