The Lift'n Buddy aluminum frame electric hand truck has a lifting mechanism powered by a 12V rechargeable battery and operates by a handheld remote control or a switch near its handle. The Electrak Pro Actuator motor raises and lowers the lifting platform, and is powered by a 12V battery. The hand truck frame is aluminum, making it resistant to corrosion and tarnishing. The frame has an attached plug-in battery charger, battery charge detection, and auto-off functionality to help keep power ready when needed. The lead acid battery is recyclable. The pneumatic tires are 10" in diameter.
Hand trucks, also known as dollies, are used to transport heavy or bulky items, especially for 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 leaned 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.
