The Magline CLK110GNG4 aluminum powered stair-climbing hand truck has a folding handle and pneumatic wheels and can be used to move boxes or other heavy items up or down stairs. The hand cart is made of aluminum, which weighs less than steel and is resistant to rust and corrosion. The handle can be folded or unfolded to suit the application. The pneumatic wheels provide better traction than polyurethane wheels, are shock-absorbent, and can be used on uneven surfaces. This product has a load capacity of 240 lb. and measures 60 x 19 x 11-1/2 inches when folded (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Hand trucks, also known as two-wheeled dollies, are used to transport heavy or bulky items, especially in commercial product distribution and delivery. Hand trucks are L-shaped, with handles at the top, two wheels at the bottom, and a small platform that touches the ground when the truck is upright. A load is placed on the platform and the truck is tilted back, balancing the weight over the wheels. Powered hand trucks have a platform that lifts the load up, or lowers it down, to reduce human labor. Some hand trucks may be convertible to platform trucks for moving large or cumbersome loads. Others fold flat for storage.
Magline manufactures Magliner brand hand trucks, dollies, ramps, and other products for material handling applications. The company, founded in 1947, is headquartered in Standish, MI.
