There are a few different names often given to sack trucks. You'll often hear them referred to as a sack trolley, hand trolley and sack barrow. They all do the same thing and are a vital piece of equipment for most workplaces.

So, how do you decide which one is best for you?

Many of our sack trucks have multi-purpose designs and are suitable for many areas. These are some of the main features that you'll want to look out for when looking through the range:

  1. Load capacity - the total weight that can be supported and moved safely
  2. Handle type - different handles change the way you use and operate the truck
  3. Toe plate size - you'll need a large enough plate to support items

Load capacity

The first thing most customers look for in a sack barrow is what kind of load capacity it has. Every variation on our website will show a maximum capacity to help you select the right truck for the items you are transporting. Load capacities can range from 60kg up to a massive 350kg or more on our heavy duty trucks. It's important to get a capacity that can generously support the items your transport for improved health and safety.

Get the right style of handle

Two handled sack trucks are the most common in our range and offer greater leverage when tipping a heavily loaded barrow, getting it ready to move. A P type handle is featured on some of our models and offers easy single handed use, especially when pulling the truck along rather than pushing. The P style handle also provides greater turning flexibility over the two handled versions. Many of our handles also have protective guards to offer superior grip and prevent damage to the users hands when navigating narrow door frames.

The Size of the Toe Plate

The toe plate (sometimes referred to as a foot iron) is a very important part of a hand truck. A small plate is easier to transport, but won't be suitable for moving larger boxes or objects.

No matter what your requirements in a sack truck are, we'll have one to suit the items you're moving. The toe plates in our range can be as small as 100mm and as long as 700mm. Use the filters at the side of the page to find exactly the depth you need.

Folding or Fixed truck?

So you've got things to move but there's a lack of storage space for a conventional sack truck. It could be that you need to easily transport goods from a delivery vehicle but dont have the space to carry a full sized truck on board. After all, that's space that could be used to store more products for delivery.

A folding sack barrow makes storing, carrying and transporting very easy.

The foot iron is hinged, enabling it to fold up into the frame, taking up far less floor space. Some of our folding toe trucks also feature collapsible handles and frames. These are often telescopic parts that slide down in to the frame to reduce the size. This makes a compact folding sack truck ideal if you need to transport it in a car boot or on small delivery van.

Many of our folding sack trucks come supplied with elasticated cords or straps to help secure and support the load while being transported. They also feature robust wheel options that includes rubber tyre wheels and pneumatic wheels. The later option is extremely useful while moving goods by sack truck over rough or uneven floors.

Heavy Duty Sack Trucks for tougher environments

Our Heavy Duty range are by far our most popular for use in industrial workplaces. Each product features a high quality construction, huge load capacity and large toe plate. They generally have pneumatic tyres to ensure that heavy loads are transported safely over rough terrain and uneven warehouse floors. They have higher rust resistance due to their painted or powder coated finishes. Each one has a maximum load capacity depending on its construction but generally can take loads of up to 350kg.

If you regularly need to move loads up stairs, you'll want to take a look at our Stair Climbing Trucks. They make stairs safer for moving loads with their rotating 3 wheel designs and can save a lot of time. We even offer a heavy duty Aluminium Stair Climber with a massive 300kg load capacity for transporting large loads up stairs safely.
