Sack trolleys are just for commercial or industrial applications. Once you have one, you're sure to find a myriad of uses around your home or property. It's such a simple device, but can be supremely useful. A sack trolley can be two-wheeled or four-wheeled, but the four-wheel model is by far the most useful. Applications for this equipment include moving heavy items around your home or garden, or transporting parts and materials in a factory, warehouse or store. A trolley's design makes it simple, easy and effective to operate, allowing users to transport up to four times their body body effortlessly. Because more items can be stack on a trolley, it's more efficient than the typical hand truck. Also, unlike a hand truck, a four-wheeled trolley does not need to be balanced. It's perfectly stable on its own, thanks to its a stable design.

The Many Variations of a Sack Trolley

If you're limited on storage space, then be sure to consider a folding or a telescopic trolley that can collapse down into one-half of its size. This makes the trolley exceptionally easy to transport, since it will fit comfortably into the boot of a car. It's important to understand that the design of a folding sack trolley is inherently less powerful than a traditional fixed frame model. If your trade or business requires moving items up or down stairs, then it's wise to acquire a stair climbing that even may come in a motorized version for effortless operation. A stair trolley features independent wheels that facilitate climbing stairs. It's also a good idea to choose a trolley with stair skids, which act like skis that glide on the stairs. Such trolleys are ideal for transporting fragile items.

The Modular Designed Sack Trolley

Although manufactured in the US and Germany only, a modular designed sack trolley allows users to customize them for your particular needs. Once you've selected a frame, either curved or straight, steel or aluminum, then add a handle that's right for the way you intend to use the trolley. Beside the frame, the toe plate is an important part of a trolley, so when making your bespoke version, be sure to choose the correct size, again based on your projected usage. This equipment can be further customized with personalization, curve ramps, document pouches, and more.

The Chair Sack Trolley

Some organizations and institutions have an ongoing need to move stacks of chairs, so it's not surprising that there's a purpose-built trolley for moving them. In these models, very often the toe plate is oversized to accommodate the four legs of the bottom chair in the stack that's being moved. Some chair trolleys have flanges on the sides of the toe plate to keep the stack stable. Regardless of the type of trolley you're using, it's typically a good idea to secure the load with straps to prevent the stack tipping and damaging the chairs.

The Bottle and Barrel Moving Sack Trolley

The problem with gas cylinders, such as those found in hospitals, is that they do not come in standard sizes. Thiscoming deve the design of sack trucks that can handle all the various sizes easily and safely. Another specialized type of sack trolley is designed specifically for moving barrels of beer. This has a curved back frame to stabilize the barrel as it's being moved. Also fitted is a moveable hook that also serves to stabilize the load by locking it against the curved back of the frame.

The Versatile Convertible and Heavy-Duty Sack Trolley

If you're on a budget and can not afford to buy several different trolleys for various uses, then consider acquiring a convertible model. This trolley can be configured in either a horizontal or vertical mode. In settings where trolleys receive heavy or hard use, it's wise to invest in heavy-duty models with robust frames and components. The frames on these generally are made from thick, durable angle iron. Their flat, lattice backs make them ideal for moving weighty stacks of boxes or goods. To facilitate moving these, a heavy-duty sack trolley also has an elongated, open toe plate that helps keep the load stable while moving. The open toe plate reduces the trolley's overall weight, making it the ideal choice for use on delivery vans that handle food and wine.

The Aluminum Heavy Duty Sack Trolley

This trolley weighs much less than steel models. It features a lattice back, and may even have a steel toe plate for durability. Such models are designed to accommodate loads of virtually any size, weight and shape. Another feature, rear skids, facilitates moving loads up and down the stairs without bumping or jarring. There are a number of handle styles available, including pistol grip, double, P-handle or U-handle.

Other Types of Sack Trolley

Diamond toe sack trucks, pneumatic barrow sack truck, heavy duty drum truck, mesh back truck and drum dolls are other types of purpose-designed sack trolleys with highly specialized designs. Also available are rough terrain sack trucks designed for use on uneven ground found in places like construction sites and farms. There's even a warehouse platform trolley that has a load rating of 300kg, and is fitted with a strong, solid platform. Both the deck and bumper strip are rubberised. The pull-along handle folds flat for easy storage. Expect to pay about  £ 50.00 for a trolley of this type. It also features 5-inch castors, and is 916mm high, 616mm wide, and 863mm long. It weighs 16kg.

When shopping for a sack trolley, it's important to decide which type and size is best for you before you buy.
