Benefits of multi-purpose sack trucks

Multi-position sack trucks offer many benefits for users, such as:

Reducing manual handling risks - sack trucks can help prevent injuries and accidents caused by lifting, carrying or moving heavy or awkward loads by hand. They can reduce the strain on the back, neck, shoulders and arms of the user, as well as minimise the risk of dropping or damaging the goods.

Improving efficiency and productivity - our multi-purpose hand trucks enable users to move more loads in less time and with less effort. They can also adapt to different situations and environments, allowing users to switch between modes depending on the load size, shape and weight.

Saving money and space - multi-position hand trucks can eliminate the need for buying multiple pieces of equipment for different purposes. They can also save storage space by folding up or converting into a compact form when not in use.

  1. Check the condition - Before using the sack truck, you should inspect it for any damage or defects that might affect its performance or safety. You should also check the tyres for any punctures or wear and tear.
  2. Adjust the position - Depending on the type of load, adjust the position of the sack truck accordingly.
  3. Load the items - Load the items onto the toe plate or platform carefully and evenly. You should avoid overloading or unbalancing the sack truck and secure the items with straps if necessary.
  4. Move the items - Manoeuvre the items with caution and control. Avoid sudden movements or sharp turns that might cause instability or tipping over. You should also use both hands to steer and brake the sack truck.
  5. Unload the items - When you reach your destination, unload the items from the sack truck carefully and gently. Avoid dropping or dragging the items, as this might damage them or the sack truck. You should also return the sack truck to its original position and safely store it away when not in use.
