HOT Stock Tip
This order includes enhanced suspensions to combat some of the crushings that have plagued the Fat Cart model 281 series that Walmart has been using for the last 5 years, in which the suspension of the Fat Cart fails to support the weight of a 400+ pound customer. More than 3,000 of the Original Fat Cart Model 281 have had their suspension systems crushed.
The model 375 also has an enhanced battery system. The batteries on the model 281 Fat Cart would wear down under heavy loads, and go dead. In the past year alone there, out of Walmarts 3000+ nation wide stores, there were at least 10 known incidents of an obese individual having to get up and walk more than halfway across the store to retrieve a fully charged Fat Cart. The new model 375 includes a backup battery which should have enough power to return the operator to the front of the store.
In 2003, Morgan Chris of Titusville, Montana was killed as he tried to pull a gas grill off of an overhead shelf with his "reaching stick" and into the basket of his Fat Cart. Instead, the gas grill fell off the shelf and broke his neck. To prevent further incidents, the Fat Cart model 375 has an overhead roll cage.
In another Fat Cart related fatality, Stanley Watkins of Spokesville, Oregon was headed towards the snack shop at speeds estimated to be well over 5 mph. He struck and killed 3 of what Walmart refers to as "pedestrian shoppers", I.E. the few customers who choose to make the journey from one side of the store to the other on foot. Watkin's blood alcohol level was estimated to be 3 times the legal limit for operating a motorized vehicle. The new Fat Cart model 375 includes an onboard breathalyzer and a collision avoidance system which cuts power to the wheels when a pedestrian crosses in front of the vehicle.
