The Magline HSA811AA1-5 two-wheel snack hand truck has a loop handle, two mold-on rubber wheels, and an extendable nose plate and can be used for transporting cases of snack foods. The hand truck is made of aluminum, which weighs less than steel and is resistant to rust and corrosion. The loop handle can be gripped in different places for comfort and convenience. The mold-on rubber wheels measure 8" in diameter, absorb shocks and vibrations, won't deflate or scratch floors, and are resistant to wear. This product has a load capacity of 80 lb. with the nose extended or 500 lb. with the nose retracted. It weighs 28 lb. and measures 61-1/2 x 17 inches (H x W). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right.)
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.
