Sack trucks, also known as ‘hand trucks,’ are mechanical trolleys that are typically used in construction and industry for carrying large, heavy objects that are otherwise very difficult to move; such as furniture or heavy sacks of cement for instance. They need to be lightweight yet sturdy in design so that they are easily portable and manageable, but can also bear very heavy weights. Some Sack Trucks can fold down in to a collapsed form to make them convenient for storage. A Sack Truck is an L-shaped cart with handles at one end, wheels at the bottom, along with a small ledge to rest the objects on. Therefore the objects need to be allowed to tilt back and bear the weight onto the back of the ledge, over the wheels. Consequently, this makes objects that are previously large and heavy or just awkward to carry easier to move.
There are a wide variety of designs for Sack Trucks, each tailored to the slightly different needs of different tasks at hand. For example, someone who needed a sack truck for moving concrete slabs around a construction site would need a different design to someone who needs a sack truck to transport heavy furniture up stairs. There are a vast variety of Sack Trucks, which include Appliance Hand Trucks, Convertible Trucks, Drum Trucks, Dual Handle Trucks, Keg Trucks, Lawn & Garden, Pin Handle Trucks, Platform Carts, and Stock Carts.
