Hand trucks allow moving large and heavy loads easily from one place to another. Also known as dollies, hand trollies, and stack trucks these wheeled carts are a very efficient and affordable solution for any operation that includes moving boxes and other regularly shaped objects.
Hand trucks are human operated devices and are ergonomically designed to prevent injuries from lifting heavy objects. They are also a time-saving solution allowing to carry multiple loads in a single displacement.
There are different type of hand trucks for different purposes and uses. Convertible hand trucks can be used as an upright hand truck or as a platform truck, allowing more stackable items to be moved in a single trip. Folding hand trucks can be collapsed for space-saving purposes while being stored, drum hand trucks are used to carry barrels.
