Hand Trucks for Industrial Work

Hand Trucks for Industrial Work

One of the most essential pieces of equipment at most industrial work sites is a high-quality hand truck. These hand trucks are able to move heavy loads relatively easily by leveraging the item’s weight and pairing that leverage with a strong and  reliable set of wheels or casters.

Traditional Steel or Aluminum Hand Trucks:

When anyone thinks about a hand truck, they tend to picture a piece of equipment that stands several feet tall, has medium-sized wheels, and a small platform. It’s capable of lifting light or moderate loads, but it’s by no means the most versatile or heavy-duty model on the market.

Benefits:

  • They are perfect for completing smaller jobs
  • They are great for tasks that require lesser weight to be placed on the truck’s platform
  • Both steel and aluminum models are quite durable and reliable
  • Each model holds up to 900 lbs. for a single load

For Bigger Moves: The Appliance Hand Truck

One of the heaviest loads carried by any hand truck comes when the equipment is used to transport appliances from one place or another. This process requires a hand truck that has the right “tilt,” or angle, to get the job done. Not having the proper hand truck to transport oversized loads can result in catastrophic damage to your material, equipment and to person. Stocking the wrong hand truck can result in thousands of dollars of liability damage.

A number of appliance trucks are available to industrial customers with tilt angles that range from 45o to 49o. So, always be sure that an appliance hand truck has the right combination of tilt and capacity before using it to move a given appliance.

Dual Purpose Hand Trucks Cover

These hand trucks are designed to work either in a standup or flatbed configuration that means they can be used to move a wide variety of wide, tall or bulky loads and the rated capacity of most models exceeds even the 900 lbs. They are perfect for warehouses and shipping operations where they mostly found.
