skate wheel conveyorWe are introducing our third product in this category, Skate Wheel Gravity Conveyor.  You will find skate wheel to be an extremely economical and flexible conveyance product for lightweight temporary or permanent product movement.

Gravity conveyor systems are designed for non-powered conveyance typically used for truck off-loading, tote or carton sorting, assembly or fulfillment areas. Sections of the conveyor can be level for push-assisted applications or minimally sloped to allow gravity to do the work.  Gravity conveyors are the least expensive conveyor option and have the added benefits of being easy to install, efficient and requiring minimal maintenance.

Mallard gravity conveyors are an affordable and reliable way to keep light to medium weight products, cartons, totes, cases, skids and even drums moving in your storage, assembly and shipping areas. We offer three types of gravity conveyor products:

  • Skate wheel conveyor
  • 1 3/8” diameter conveyor
  • 9” diameter conveyor
