Dolly Hand Trucks Made From Steel Or Aluminum

Heavy Duty Appliance Dollys Dolly hand trucks now feature specialized frames, maneuverability, and superior wheel design. These modifications to classic dolly design have evolved over the years in direct response to some of the biggest challenges that face workers moving heavy loads on handtrucks. Their all-welded aluminum design offers a light weight option, easily controllable option that is ideally suited for the full spectrum clean room and cold storage applications.


Workers encounter difficulty when attempting to move cylindrical storage containers with standard dolly hand trucks. The flat back rest of the typical truck provides insufficient support for the rounded surface of a keg, a barrel, or a large can.

Aluminum DolliesThis problem can be overcome with stainless steel or aluminum handtrucks that feature curved cross supports along the frame. This cradles the cylinder when the truck is tilted and allows the operator to safely turn corners, stop, reverse, and move forward again without the cargo rolling off to the side.

Workers also encounter problems when they are maneuvering cargo over an uneven surface. Standard tires normally have insufficient shock absorption to handle uneven terrain. Vibrations travel all the way up the frame. This makes it more difficult for the operator to control the direction of the truck, and it destabilizes the load on the dolly. Collisions and spills often result, causing product loss and/or injury.

Convertible Hand Truck (Aluminum

The solution to this comes from fitting stainless steel or aluminum handtrucks with pneumatic tires. These tires offer superior shock absorbency over standard tires and allow for better control over maneuvering over rough outdoor terrain, cluttered stock yards, and moving in and out of trucks.

When working in an area that is cluttered with hard, shop objects that can pierce both standard and even pneumatic tires, it may be advisable to invest in stainless steel or aluminum handtrucks with flat free wheels. These wheels are built around a solid core that eliminates the need for typical inflation. They are the most resilient wheel option we offer for tough, crowded storage areas.

Workers also encounter difficulty moving heavy loads any time they have to navigate through extremely narrow entrances, make their way up the stairs, or move the load over a curb. With standard dolly hand trucks, most people pull the load behind them with the handle tilted in the direction of the incline. Usually as well, a worker has to steady the frame with the other hand while he or she struggles to pull several hundred pounds of materials over the obstruction. This is problematic enough when attempting to jump a curb; it is often disastrous when moving up a row of stairs.

The product losses and occasional injuries that occur around stairwells can be drastically reduced with our stair climbing aluminum handtruck. With three sets of wheels on either side that rotate around a central axis, this truck can grab corners and stairs without unbalancing the load.

A similar model designed for lateral movements features four wheels on the base that turn on multi-directional axes. This model is ideal for moving products in cold freezer units at 180 degree angles without the operator having to rotate his or her physical position.

Stainless steel and aluminum dolly hand trucks come with a lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion and a five year warranty against material and workmanship defects.
