The big picture: You are in the business of helping people lead healthier lives by producing wholesome products for your customers. Ergonomically, however, your own health is at risk due to repeated and prolonged stooping, bending and working in awkward postures for which the human body was not designed. Unfortunately, injuries from repetitive motion stress (RMS) are largely irreversible. Prevention is the key and working on a Drängen machine actually makes you use your body correctly. Your body was not “engineered” for extended use in stooping and bending positions or for working on your hands and knees. The Drängen Work Cart provides a completely new way of approaching field work and is now used by hundreds of growers in the US, Europe and around the world. Not only does it reduce ergonomic stress, it also measurably improves your labor productivity.
Imagine for a moment that you are relaxing your shoulders, back and legs while you are lying comfortably face down on a massage table. Now imagine this table is carrying you over your rows where you are within relaxed arm’s reach of your crop. Your feet are almost effortlessly controlling your movement along the row. Both of your hands are free to make the most efficient use of your effort and time. Your cart is also carrying your transplant flats or your harvest boxes. You feel incredibly relieved that you are not stooped over anymore and no longer dragging things with one hand while having only one hand actually doing the work. Your supply of transplants or harvest containers are moving with you to the end of the row. You won’t have to go back through the field to pick them up. And even when the sun is hot or a light rain is falling, you are comfortable under the canopy mounted over your work cart. “Now this is the way to get work done!”, you are saying to yourself, aren’t you? Who wouldn’t, right?
This is what work on a Drängen work cart feels like. For those like Rich B. who operates a market farm in N. Illinois, his Drängen is indispensible.
Are you the one doing the work on your operation? Are you concerned about the health and welfare of those who work for you? Wouldn’t you like a better, safer, more productive way to do the hand work of transplanting, or weeding or de-blossoming or harvesting your crops? If you’re like most growers, you do want a better life for you, your family and your workers.
