- Material handling efficiency is planned and predictable
- A well-designed system can operate at a programmed speed to meet production rates and maintain safety
- Localized use of manual for trucks should replace maintenance costs and prolong the life of the equipment

Savant rear wheel drive AGVs are rugged units capable of operating on ramps, indoors or outdoors. Typical AGV trains consist of 1 to more than 6 towed carts. Units include built-in operator driving compartment for manual use. The DT-60 and DT-100 model AGVs are used for heavy duty towing of trailers, carts, hand pallet jacks, etc. in a manufacturing or distribution environment.
The DT-60/100 is an efficient and economical AGV, capable of moving up to seven times more material than conventional unit load vehicles, while reducing labor costs where routine point-to-point deliveries occur.
