Sack trucks, also known as hand trucks, come in a wide range of types and styles. They are ideal for lifting and transporting heavy loads, which reduces the strain put on individuals and the risk of injury. Sack trucks are adaptable and can be used across many industries and environments such as workshops, warehouses, mailrooms and even offices. Heavy duty sack trucks are made from particularly hardwearing materials, making them suitable for lifting and transporting heavier loads.
This is the most important part when it comes to purchasing a sack truck. Load capacity will depend on the wheel type, material, and construction of the sack truck. Load capacity could range from 50kg to 500kg.
The toe plate is the loading point of the truck and can be also referred to as a foot plate, platform shoe or ledge.
The loop handle can be used with one hand, allowing the other hand to be free for opening doors. A variation of the loop handle is the P handle and that allows you to load the truck horizontally before being raised to the upright or tilted position. A dual handle is a combination of the loop handle and 2 separate handles.
You can choose between the two, aluminium or steel material. Steel sack trucks are durable and the best for the highest load capacities and heavy duty applications. Aluminium sack trucks are light and easy to carry or transport, which is a must-have for delivery drivers.
