General Purpose Sack Truck
A real workhorse sack truck that will comfortably handle a wide variety of loads over most terrains. Big 260mm diameter pneumatic rubber tyres on steel wheels with ball bearing hubs reduce shock to both load and operator while wheel protectors mean wide loads can be cradled and handled with ease. Our most popular model.
Hints for easy use
When used properly these trucks can be a real labour saver, however if used incorrectly they can be awkward and uncomfortable. It all depends on the way they are loaded. The rated capacity shown for each model is designed to sit over the axle and wheels when the trolley is tilted backwards towards the user about 30 degrees. Then it is comfortably balanced and easy to use. If the load is too far forward the truck has to be tilted back excessively meaning the user has to propel it in a stooping position which is ergonomically bad and can cause back problems. So always carefully assess the best way to carry any load before attempting to move it.
Also it is important to remember that a load with its centre of gravity too far forward can damage a truck as it is tilted back even though it may weigh far less than the rated capacity.
