Topper Industrial Explains Reasons Why Modern Mother Daughter Cart Gains Popularity

Thirty years ago, Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial, invented the idea of the modern industrial Mother Daughter cart. Brown, who holds many patents for cart delivery design and mechanisms was one of the first few to re-design and improve the design.  In the era of Fork Truck Free initiatives to improve safety and eliminate wasted trips back and forth throughout the plant, the main feature that makes the Mother Daughter carts so popular is the ability to easily decouple (and couple) the other carts when delivering material. Daughter carts can be easily loaded and unloaded.

Before Brown developed these best performing train of delivery carts, each cart had to be decoupled. A cart from the line of carts to deliver material required disconnection from the cart in front and back. While better than making multiple fork truck trips back-and-forth, each decoupling and coupling was more time consuming. The old string (train) of carts required operators to move the material on that cart placing contents on the production line to which it was being delivered. The old method meant after delivering goods operator had to hook the two loose carts back in form of the train. Brown concluded there must be a better way and invented the Wheels on the Ground Mother Daughter cart.

Just as all five of Ed Brown’s adult children represent the next generation of Topper Industrial, the recent fast-growing popularity of the new Topper Industrial Mother Daughter cart technology has eliminated the ramp and force to engage the daughter cart into the frame. This new design in totality is patent pending from frame, mechanisms, Walk Through, Side Utilization, and variety of Daughter Carts each representing the next generation of Ed Brown’s initial idea.
