These carts allow you to quickly move material or remove trash and scrap from your work site. You'll want to look for one that has a strong, durable rim to prevent wear at an absolute minimum.
Plastic or metal containers tend to last a long time and are easy to clean and maintain. Removable wheels also help to make maintenance easier, while a powder coated frame for durability and standard fork lift pockets help make this tool even more efficient on the job site.
By adding storage containers on the job site, you create automatic organization for on-site supplies and a secure location to keep tools, preventing them from being stolen or misplaced. Consider looking at models with castors to make transitioning from one site or location within the site to another, a durable material such as metal or plastic, space underneath to facilitate transport with a fork lift, sturdy handles for moving the container by hand and options to lock the containers up to prevent unauthorized access, waste and theft.
Though clean up is part of any construction project, minimizing the amount of clean up that must take place helps reduce the amount of time, energy and labor that goes into the process. Dust barriers limit the spread of project dust and debris outside of the area being worked on and contain the mess to that specific area. Look for a dust barrier that allows you to set up in a wide range of systems due to its versatility, such as telescoping, spring loaded poles that provide a point of contact that goes from floor to ceiling and is able to work with a wide range of dust barrier material.
When it comes to quick work site clean up and tool maintenance, a Shop Vac makes it easy to get the job done. Available in a wide range of sizes and powers, look for one that has a locking hose to prevent annoying hose release, that can handle liquids if it is a common issue on your job and if you work in sensitive areas such as hospitals or schools, one that has a HEPA filter option to prevent the spread of allergens.
