The Vestil steel hand truck has two handles, a steel frame, two wheels, and a nose plate, and can be tilted backward and rolled to move boxes or other heavy items. The hand truck is made of steel, which is stronger and more durable than aluminum. The two handles offer greater load control than typical single-handle trucks. This product has a load capacity of 500 pounds, weighs 36 pounds, and measures 44-1/2 x 17-1/2 inches (H x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The hand dolly’s nose plate measures 13-3/4 x 6-1/2 inches (W x D). The wheels measure 10 inches in diameter. 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 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.
Vestil manufactures materials handling equipment, including hoists and trolleys, jib and gantry cranes, loading dock equipment, and storage solutions. The company, founded in 1968, is headquartered in Angola, IN.
