A hand trolley is a small device used to move heavy loads from one place to another.
It is a widely used tool by many industries that transport physical products. Also called a hand truck, the hand trolley is often used by operators who arrange and stock merchandise in retail stores and moves boxes or stock within warehouses.
What is a Hand Trolley?
A hand trolley is a 2 wheel trolley manufactured in a "L" shape and is operated by hand.
Hand Trolleys (or Hand Trucks) are typically constructed using two small wheels which are positioned underneath a load-bearing platform.
A Support frame protrudes upwards from the load bearing platform.
The hand trolley usually has two handles on its support frame. These handles are used to push, pull and manoeuvre the trolley.
How does a Hand Trolley work?
An empty hand trolley usually stands upright in an L-shape, and products are stacked on top of the load bearing platform.
When the goods are in place, the trolley is tilted backward so that the load balances against the platform and the support frame. The load bearing frame tilts upwards off the floor, allowing the trolley to be easily moved.
Pay special attention if heavy or fragile materials are moved, the person operating the trolley should return it to an upright position carefully, to ensure nothing falls off the platform. Strap goods to the support frame if in doubt.
When used properly, hand trolleys can protect people from back injuries and other health problems that can result from lifting heavy loads whilst improving efficiency on warehouse and factory floors.
