The RWM Casters FW-90C aluminum foldaway hand truck can be used to move boxes or other heavy items, and its loop handle and two 7" wheels fold flat for storage or transport. The hand cart 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 and extends to 38" high. The truck includes an elastic cord to help secure transported items. When unfolded, the hand truck measures 42-1/2 x 19 x 13-1/2 inches (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 the front of the toe plate to the back of it.) When folded, this product measures 31 x 18-1/2 x 3 inches (H x W x D). The hand truck weighs 11.5 pounds and has a load capacity of 275 pounds.
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.
