A sack truck is essentially an upright trolley frame which is used for transporting objects. It has long handles, and a small ledge base, and two wheels. When an item is placed on the sack truck, the handles are used to manoeuvre the truck so it is pivoting on these two wheels. This makes heavy and cumbersome objects a lot easier to manoeuvre and lift off the ground. It is sort of a basic form of a lever mechanism.
Sack trucks are always designed to be very strong and hard wearing which makes them suitable for carrying heavy and bulky goods. They are usually made from steel or aluminium with strong rubber tyres.
There are different types of sack trucks including the basic sack truck, the folding foot sack truck and the stair climber sack truck.
The folding foot sack truck has a base which can be folded away making storage much easier and more economic. This also makes transporting the sack trucks easier. The folding foot can then be locked back into position again for use.
The stair climber sack truck has a mechanism which enables it to be moved up and down steps. It has a rotating axle onto which is attached three wheels on each side. This unique design allows the stair climber sack truck to glide easily over stairs, making what could be an impossible job, a relatively easy one.
Sack trucks are commonly used in garden centres, building grounds, garages, warehouses, industrial estates, factories, large shops, schools, removal companies, homes and many more places. They are basically useful anywhere which might require some heavy lifting.
Sack are very cost effective and well worth the money. Your sack truck is an investment which will last you a good many years and make many physical jobs a lot easier.
