The Vestil CSHT-500 steel convertible hand truck has two handles, a steel frame, two pneumatic wheels, two swivel casters, and a nose plate, and can convert from a hand truck to a platform truck for transporting heavy or bulky loads. The convertible hand cart is made of steel, which is stronger and more durable than aluminum. The two handles offer greater load control than typical single-handle trucks. The pneumatic wheels measure 3-1/2 inches wide and 10 inches in diameter, provide better traction than polyurethane wheels, are shock-absorbent, and can be used on uneven surfaces. The swivel casters offer maneuverability, measure 1 inch wide and 4 inches in diameter, and are made of rubber, which can't go flat and is resistant to wear. When used as a hand truck, this product has a load capacity of 600 pounds and measures 57 x 19 x 20 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 front to back.) When used as a platform truck, it has a load capacity of 650 pounds and measures 37 x 19 x 42 inches (H x W x D). The hand dolly's nose plate measures 10-1/4 x 7-1/2 inches (W x D). This convertible hand truck weighs 69 pounds. This hand truck is intended for use in professional and industrial environments.
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 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. Some hand trucks may be convertible to platform trucks for moving large or cumbersome loads. Others fold flat for storage.
