Powered Fifth Wheel

Turn any trolley into a powered trolley

Electrodrive’s Powered Fifth Wheel is a retrofittable solution for converting your manually pushed trolleys into powered ones. Controlled with an ergonomically designed tiller arm for a natural walking posture, the powered fifth wheel works with your trolley’s other four wheels to help you move heavy loads safely and efficiently.

The Powered Fifth Wheel kit

  1. An adjustable tiller arm that can be easily reconfigured to fit vertical or horizontal handles of varying widths and heights. It can also be folded away for a smaller footprint, for elevators and tight spaces

  2. A powerful motorised wheel capable of moving up to 500 kg

  3. A flexible control cable

Many trolleys, one solution

The handle clamps on both ends of the tiller arm can be fully customised, ensuring compatibility with a wide variety of vertical or horizontal trolley handles, including those found on:

  • Meal delivery systems

  • Hotel luggage trolleys

  • Stock trolleys

  • Linen trolleys
