The different types
Kruizinga has different types of hand trucks in its product range. Hand trucks have been a staple in logistics environments such as warehouses and distribution centers for many years. The hand trucks can vary in load capacity, material type, height or application. In this paragraph we will briefly name the different types of handcarts:
Kruizinga has a large assortment in stair step trucks. A stair push trolley is also called a stair runner trolley. It is a hand truck designed to transport products up and down stairs. The wheels on the two sides of the stair runner truck ensure this. Because of this specific feature, you will see the stair runner hand truck used a lot, for example, in office buildings with multiple floors, or the stair runner hand truck is used in removals. Often these hand trucks also have a large load capacity. Machines, televisions, etc. can thus be easily placed in the house at the desired location.
In addition to the manual stair stepper, we also sell electric stair stealers at Kruizinga. These electric stair runner stitchers contain an electric motor and with it can make 17/34 steps per minute.
Gas bottle trolley
A gas bottle trolley is used for (gas) bottles. This type of truck is specially designed for this purpose. The gas bottle trolley can transport one gas bottle of, for example, 10 liters, 20 liters, 40 liters or 50 liters. The product is characterized by the open edges and a chain, this ensures that the gas bottle remains stable. Also, the product is made of the material type steel, this makes the product very sturdy and can take a beating.
Tire sack trucks are sack trucks found primarily in automotive industries. Transporting car tires without using a hand truck can have a negative impact on a person's physical condition. This is why we see the tire hand truck widely used by an auto mechanic in a garage or by the roadside assistance. The tire picks are made of metal and have a load capacity of about 200 kg. With this weight, several tires can easily fit on the tire pickup truck. A tire pusher can have pneumatic tires or solid rubber tires.
A drum truck is made for transporting and storing drums. At Kruizinga, we have different types of drum trucks in our assortment. For example, one product is characterized by solid rubber tires and the other by pneumatic tires. When one chooses solid rubber tires, he or she has the advantage that they are universally applicable. Pneumatic tires are mainly used when transporting heavy loads, outdoors or on uneven ground.
Multifunctional hand truck
A hand truck that is multifunctional can be used in a variety of ways. For example, at Kruizinga.nl we sell a collapsible hand truck that can also serve as a stepladder, or a collapsible hand truck that can also be used as a trolley. These handcarts are made of the material aluminum, which makes them lightweight. This allows you to easily carry the collapsible hand truck or folding hand truck.
Trolley for machines
When moving house, for example, it is necessary to transport a dishwasher, washing machine or refrigerator. These machines are very heavy and it is incredibly bad for the body to lift them. Therefore, choose to use a hand truck for this purpose. A hand truck that transports machines is also called an appliance truck. This type of hand truck has a load capacity of 250 kg to 400 kg. The hand trucks are made of the type of material that allows them to hold these heavy appliances. Besides the hand trucks that we recognize by the wheels at the bottom, Kruizinga also has another type in its range. This type of hand truck has a 2 star wheel set. This allows the hand truck to be fully tilted and roll easily on the ground.
Hand truck wheel
A hand truck wheel is a type of wheel used on hand trucks. It is designed to move heavy loads easily and is usually made of rubber or polyurethane, with a steel or aluminum rim. It is important for a hand truck wheel to be of good quality so that the cart can maneuver easily.
What environment are they found in?
Sidewalk carts are found in different types of environments. For example, you can think of a delivery driver who needs to transport heavy packages from the car to a front door. Or a pushcart used in large warehouses to transport items from one place to another. You often see them in warehouses, factories, stores and other environments where freight or goods need to be moved regularly. A trolley is ideal for transporting heavy goods because it reduces the risk of back strain.
