Complete Guide to Sack Trucks

Sack trucks, also known as hand trucks, come in a wide range of types and styles. At CSI Products, you can choose from 70+ sack trucks. With such a huge selection, you may wonder what the difference is between various types of sack trucks. In order to help you choose the right sack truck for your business or project, we have put together a guide highlighting the benefits of the different types of sack trucks.

Standard and Heavy Duty Sack Trucks

Sack trucks are ideal for lifting and transporting heavy loads, which reduces the strain put on workers and the risk of injury. Sack trucks are versatile and can be used across many industries and environments including warehouses, workshops, mailrooms and office environments.

Heavy duty sack trucks are made from particularly hardwearing materials, making them suitable for lifting and transporting heavier loads.

Many of our sack truck range come equipped with REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals) compliant and puncture proof wheels, ensuring that you will not be let down when using the sack trucks on a daily basis in a professional environment.

High back sack trucks have a higher back than standard sack trucks which allows you to stack up more items and transport multiple or taller items safely.

Sack trucks with fixed and folding toe plates have a fixed shorter toe plate and a longer folding toe plate which can be used for transporting heavier or bulkier items, providing greater lifting purchase and making your work easier. The folding toe plate can be folded when not required.

Folding Sack Trucks

Folding sack trucks are similar to regular sack trucks when in use, but they can be folded to a more compact size when not in use. This makes them ideal for workplaces with little storage space or where the sack truck is only needed occasionally, allowing workers to store it away neatly, when it is not needed.

2-in-1 and 3-in-1 sack trucks can quickly be converted into additional truck options. The 2-in-1 truck can be used as a sack truck or a platform truck, whilst the 3-in-1 truck can be used as a regular sack truck, a platform truck or a four-wheeled sack truck, providing extra stability when transporting heavier loads.
