This Stainless Steel pull handle is truly an Emergency Pull handle since if your black or grey tank is full, and the Plastic Pull Handle Breaks, you have and emergency on your hands.
The hook end is fashioned to hook on the existing stop nut on the metal shaft that is still present when the plastic T Handle has broken off. We have made these for the Locomotive Service Crews for years. It’s also a great item to keep in your RV for the “just in case” day comes when you’re traveling and the handle breaks.

Does your shop use plastic or Home Owner stamped carts? If you only need it to hold some nuts and bolts your probably ok. But we both know they are junk.
Our carts have welded steel angle frames with Caster Plates welded on the base. The hemmed pans are 14 or 16-gauge steel. Our swivel casters with a large lever brakes and solid 6″ x 2″ oil and chemical-resistant one-piece molded wheels.
If you run a heavy industrial shop you can expect years of service duty in the harshest environments,
Our carts are designed for.

Yes, we all have had the “CHEAP JUNK!” thought about something we have purchased, maybe you’ve had that thought this week about your tools and equipment in your shop, perhaps your steel shop cart?
It seems like all the talk about the “throw-away” society has been around for decades, nothing new to see here, many times we don’t even return it for credit, just toss it away and buy a new one.
My experience this week was a little different, I was visiting a customer facility for a new project when I ran into this product. It sure looks used, and it should, it has survived over 8 years of use at a locomotive repair shop, hey do you know any railroaders, they can be really rough on equipment. If you don’t know, it is a harsh environment, no not the people, the work is hard and everything is heavy. Empty Railcars weigh 25-30 Tons and Locomotives Weigh 200+ Tons.

Now here is the photo from August 2011, the same casters, same paint job, a lot shinier. This is a great example of the value of a product. Anything that survives 8 years in a locomotive repair shop is doing pretty good. Blue Steel had strived for many years to provide an “Industrial Grade” product for our customers.
It sounds silly but when I saw that beat-up old cart, I just smiled.
Do you need access to the locomotives for service?
Use this rolling ramp Aluminum work platform.
Here are some concept drawings and, the finished product photos. This is an elevated rail work platform for safe and easy access to the locomotive running board. It increases access options to service locomotives on tracks without a fixed ramp.
