The Pony Express 1040-E (Extreme) motorized cart product line is used in healthcare, manufacturing, entertainment, retail, pharmaceutical, food & beverage and linen & laundry industries to eliminate employee injuries. The design is extremely compact, allowing them to safely navigate tight hallways, corridors, or manufacturing aisles. The Extreme series models have a higher capacity drive system and safety features that allow them to safely handle greater inclines up to 15 degrees.

Our latest 1040-E models are also outfitted with deep cycle AGM batteries, which provide over 2 times the life of standard AGM batteries. Dead man smart controls prevent accidents from happening when the operator takes their hands off of the controls.
