Steel Shop Carts

Industrial Grade Steel Shop Carts

We all have had the “cheap junk” thought about something we have purchased, maybe you’ve had that thought this week?  All the talk about the “throw-away” society has been around for decades, nothing new to see here.

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.  Do you know any railroaders?  If you do you know, it is a harsh environment, no not the people, the work is hard and everything is heavy.  Photo from November 2019

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.
