Sack trucks are commonly used in the moving and transportation and manufacturing and industrial facilities. What makes a sack truck differ from its counterpart, the hand truck, is its L-shaped architecture.
Pneumatic wheels can be found at its base with handles on its top. A small platform- commonly known as a toe plate- is also located at the very base. When sack trucks are in their upright position, and its toe plate is laid flat against the ground, goods can then be placed on top of the sack trucks platform with ease. Once it’s loaded, the sack trucks are tilted back in order to move goods by balancing on its two wheels.
