Magline’s heavy-duty aluminum hand truck

Standish, Michigan — Magline, Inc., manufacturer of material handling equipment, has launched an aluminum heavy-duty Appliance Truck.

While lighter than its steel equivalents, the Magliner Appliance Truck moves heavy, oversized loads more safely and easily. The Appliance Truck has a fourth wheel attachment to support loads up to 800 pounds in an incline position. This attachment is easily deployed and folded using an innovative handle release, allowing the user to keep both hands securely on the truck at all times. The truck offers an increased capacity in the two-wheel position of 600 pounds.

The Appliance Truck also features a patent-pending break back bar which prevents the truck from rolling when breaking back or putting an item in place, which promotes ergonomic posture that reduces muscle strain.

With various handle, nose and wheel options to choose from, users can customize a unit suitable for their material handling needs. Optional accessories include stair crawlers for navigating stairs and curbs; wings that add an additional six inches of load support; and a self-retracting ratchet strap to secure a load. While referred to as an appliance truck, the heavy-duty truck works in a multitude of applications where large, heavy and over-sized items need to be moved.
