Convertible Hand Trucks: Extra Stability for Heavier Loads

Posted by Blog Moderator.

Convertible hand trucks are similar to regular hand trucks, but with an extra set of wheels that fold out behind the main frame quickly and easily to create a four-wheel hand truck. Convertible hand trucks allow a single worker to move heavier loads safely, typically between 500 and 1500 pounds. They’re great for moving a variety of heavy items with fewer trips and reducing repetitive lifting, thereby lowering the risk of physical injury. Choose a straight-back or curved-back frame depending on the types of loads you need it for: straight-back frames are good for boxes, while curved-back frames are a better choice for cylinders, barrels, kegs, and other rounded shapes.
